Report: Steelers Finalizing Trade For Rams’ WR Allen Robinson

UPDATE (2:53 PM): Here are the terms of the deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It’s a late 7th round pick swap while the Steelers will pay $5 million of Robinson’s salary.

Our original story is below.

Omar Khan isn’t done yet. The Pittsburgh Steelers are reportedly close to a trade that will send Los Angeles Rams WR Allen Robinson to the Steelers. That’s according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, who says the deal is close to being completed.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Robinson is being brought to Pittsburgh for a physical and if he passes, the trade will be completed.

That news is furthered by Rams beat writer Jourdan Rodrigue, who says Robinson was given permission to seek a trade.

Robinson, 29, caught 33 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns last season for the Rams, finishing the year on IR due to a foot injury. A former 2nd round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Robinson has three career 1000+ yard seasons. He will pair with Diontae Johnson and George Pickens.

There’s been no word on trade compensation.

According to Schefter, the Steelers will pay “a portion” of the remaining $10 million left on Robinson’s deal.

In his nine-year career, Robinson has caught 528 passes for 6,748 yards and 43 touchdowns. His best year came in 2015 with Jacksonville, catching 80 passes for 1400 yards and a league-leading 14 touchdowns. He spent 2018 to 2021 with the Chicago Bears before joining the Rams last year.

Robinson could play a large number of snaps in the slot. Last year, he logged 33.6% of them inside, according to PFF, with a career slot rate of just over 28%. But he’s played inside more often in recent years compared to early in his career.

The Steelers’ top four receivers now include Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, Calvin Austin III, and Allen Robinson.
