Allen Robinson has been in the NFL for eight years and he’s posted at least 1,000 yards in three of those seasons – including an incredible 2015 campaign in which he had a league-high 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns. the league. He’s had some tough seasons due to injuries and poor quarterbacking, but the latter won’t be a problem in 2022.
With Matthew Stafford at quarterback and playing in Sean McVay’s offense, expectations are high for the Rams free agent signee. He’s excited to join the defending Super Bowl champions and find his place on offense alongside Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson.

He believes McVay’s plan will allow him to showcase all of his skills this season.
“Coach McVay and the offense he put together and the offense that these guys run, it’s one of the best offenses in the league for a reason,” Robinson said Thursday. “I really believe it will bring out the best in me and I will be able to display all the elements of my game.”
Robinson appreciates McVay’s coaching style and “how thorough he is” as a coach, always finding ways to help guys improve. Robinson learned this during his first month with the team, feeling free to play.
“It allows players to play. He corrects us and things like that, but it’s his ability to allow players to play,” he said. “Every day we go out there and as we practice and things like that, we’re able to make corrections and make adjustments based on what the guys are doing right or wrong. It’s his coaching style that really allows the players to play freely, and then we fix that. So every time I step onto the pitch, I can be myself. And if I screw something up or get it wrong here, he’ll correct me and we’ll keep pushing. Every time I step onto the pitch I feel like I can be and play at my best.
Robinson joins a team where he won’t be No. 1 receiver, with Cooper Kupp most likely holding that title again in 2022 after his historic season. He sees Kupp’s presence as “a tremendous help”, so there are no worries about his target share.
It will be tough to top his 1,400-yard season in 2015, but Robinson is on course to top 1,000 yards and potentially 10 touchdowns again this year.
