Allen Robinson’s year in Los Angeles playing for the rams it was one that he would probably love to erase from his memory as soon as humanly possible. Robinson could get his wish very soon, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the pittsburgh steelers they are in the process of acquiring the former Pro Bowler through a trade from the Rams. 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 just 33 balls and 339 receiving yards. That’s the worst production of Robinson’s career when he’s prepared for at least 10 games. Last year was an overall disaster for the Rams, with injuries all over the roster, especially on offense.
So this potential trade could be the best way for Robinson to take the bad taste out of his stint in Los Angeles. Robinson was once seen as one of the brightest young stars as a wide receiver in the NFL, but nearly a decade into his career, his stock has plummeted in the past two years. During the 2020 season in chicago, Robinson hauled in 102 catches for 1,250 yards. Over the past two years combined, he’s played in 22 games and caught 71 passes for 749 yards.
Like most potential star players who go down, Robinson has suffered multiple injuries of late. With the Rams, a broken foot cut short Robinson’s season, and in 2021, it was a leg injury during his final year with the Bears. In his last year in Jacksonville (2017), Robinson suffered a torn ACL 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. Being near 30 probably means the days of him catching 100-plus balls are over, but at this point, the goal is simply to complete a full season without serious injury. the steelThe rs offense hasn’t been the best of late, but adding Robinson could at least add the threat of a big body on the outside, especially after moving on from Chase Claypool last season.
