Rams WR Allen Robinson’s declaration for 2022 season should put rest of NFC West on notice
After a rollercoaster run with the Chicago Bears, wide receiver Allen Robinson is eyeing grand success for his upcoming tenure with the Los Angeles Rams.
During a press conference on Thursday, Robinson took some time to touch on early goals for his debut season in the Rams’ high-octane passing attack. Overall, the veteran wideout sees that the offensive system the Rams have in place suits his game quite well.
“Coach McVay and the offense that he’s put together and offense that these guys run, it’s been a top offense in the league for a reason,” Robinson said.
“I truly believe that it’ll bring the best out of me, and I’ll be able to display all the elements of my game.”
Robinson signed off on a three-year deal worth $46.5 million with the Rams in March. This came after the Rams were in the rumor mill over the possibility of re-signing Odell Beckham Jr. early in free agency, but they opted to haul in the eighth-year wideout instead.
Robinson is slated to see plenty of snaps alongside both Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson in the 2022 campaign, which is set to be a handful for opposing NFC West teams. Under now-former Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell last season, the team ran 11 personnel (three receivers, one running back and one tight end) on a league-leading 86 percent of plays.
With former Rams assistant quarterbacks coach Liam Coen now in as their new offensive coordinator, the team’s hefty preference to roll out 11 personnel may not change in the coming campaign.
Robinson is coming off of a four-year run in Chicago, where he recorded 18 receiving touchdowns in 57 regular season games played.
