The Los Angeles Rams have traded wide receiver Allen Robinson and a seventh-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a seventh-round pick. Los Angeles will pay just over ten million dollars of his salary this upcoming season while Pittsburgh will pay the other five million. The Rams were looking to dump Robinson and at least some of his salary heading into the 2023-24 NFL season. With the team fairly cap-strapped and Robinson not performing well last season, this move was bound to happen. For Pittsburgh, they spend a little bit of money for a target that could produce once again.
Trade terms agreement:
?Steelers get WR Allen Robinson and a 7th-round pick (No. 251).
?Rams receive 7th-round pick (No. 234).
Rams pay $10.25 million of Robinson’s salary; Steelers pay remaining $5 million. Robinson is scheduled to be in Pittsburgh for a physical Wednesday.

This past season as a member of the Los Angeles Rams, Allen Robinson caught 33 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns on 52 targets. It seemed that Robinson just never meshed well on the roster and some injuries slowed him down as well this season. Pittsburgh has a young quarterback in Kenny Pickett and needs to stack more weapons around him as he progresses in his career. With Los Angles paying a good portion of his salary, the team can afford to take a chance on the veteran wide receiver who has been a force in the NFL in the past. Robinson will be looking to prove he can still play in the NFL.
