Playing for Allen Robinson’s Year in Los Angeles rams That was one he would probably like to erase from his memory as soon as humanly possible. Robinson may get his wish very soon, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. pittsburgh steelers The Rams are in the process of acquiring the former Pro Bowler via trade. It all hinges on Robinson passing a physical, but if all goes well, the deal is done.

During the 2022 campaign, Robinson played in 10 games for the Rams, catching only 33 balls, and 339 receiving yards. This is the worst production in Robinson’s career when he suited up for at least 10 games. Last year was an overall disaster for the Rams, with injuries throughout the roster, especially on offense.

So, this potential trade might be the best thing for Robinson to do to wash the bad taste of his L.A. tenure out of his mouth. Robinson was once viewed as one of the brightest young stars at wide receiver in the NFL, but nearly a decade into his career, his stock has plummeted over the years. during the 2020 season chicagoIn 2010, Robinson had 102 catches for 1,250 yards. In the last two years combined, he has played in 22 games and caught 71 passes for 749 yards.

With the Rams, a leg fracture cut short Robinson’s season, and in ’21, it was a leg injury during his final year with the Bears. in his final year jacksonville (2017), Robinson suffered an ACL tear in the season opener.

So, a fresh start in Pittsburgh could be just what Robinson needs to return to being a productive receiver in the league. Getting closer to 30 likely means his days of catching more than 100 balls are over, but at this point, the goal is likely to complete the entire season without a serious injury. steelThe RS offense hasn’t been nearly the best lately, but adding Robinson could at least increase the threat of a big outside body, especially after moving on from Chase Claypool last season.
