Los Angeles Rams Could Part Ways With Wide Receiver Allen Robinson

The Los Angeles Rams made several miscalculations following their Super Bowl LVI win, resulting in a disappointing 2022 season. Now they're apparently willing to cut bait on one of their significant investments. According to the Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue, the Rams may be willing to trade wide receiver Allen Robinson and might even be willing to absorb some of his salary to do it.

The Rams acquired Robinson in free agency last year, signing him to a three-year, $46.5 million deal.  A one-time Pro Bowler with three 1000-yard seasons on his resume, he was expected to provide a deadly outside complement to superstar receiver Cooper Kupp.

Robinson immediately proved a poor fit for the Rams offense, totalling 339 yards at a frustrating 6.5 yards per target over 10 appearances. The nature of his contract makes releasing him outright useless; even as a post-June 1st cut, the Rams would receive no cap relief by losing him. Trading Robinson is the only way the Rams can avoid a significant dead money penalty.

Of course, it takes two to tango. The Rams would need to find a willing trade partner for a pass catcher about to turn 30 and coming off the worst season of his career. They'd be lucky to land a late-round pick, even if they pay a portion of his salary.
