The Pittsburgh Steelers are close to a trade with the Los Angeles Rams that Allen Robinson says will see them make veteran wide receiver NFL Media. Robinson has received permission from the Rams to be checked out with Steelers medical staff. If Pittsburgh is happy with the physical exam results, Robinson will have a new team.

Robinson’s arrival comes after the 29-year-old was limited to 10 games with the Rams in 2022 due to a foot injury. He was officially placed on injured reserve in late November after it was discovered he would have to undergo foot surgery at the end of the season. So it appears that Pittsburgh will extensively study how Robinson’s foot has evolved before finalizing the trade.

Compensation, which may return to Los Angeles, has not yet been announced. Robinson signed a three-year, $46.5 million deal with the Rams just last offseason and will have $15 million in guaranteed money next season. The Rams have already paid $5 million of that and the Steelers are expected to pay part of the remaining $10 million ESPN.

Robinson came to the league in 2014 as a second-round pick from the Jacksonville Jaguars from Penn State. His most prolific season came in 2015 with the Jags, where he caught 80 balls for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdown receptions in the league, resulting in the only Pro Bowl nod of his career. In 2018, he entered free agency and signed a $43 million contract with the Chicago Bears. He had consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020. For the Rams last season, Robinson had 33 receptions for 339 yards and three touchdowns.

Until that deal is finalized, Robinson would join a Steelers wide receiver room that also includes Diontae Johnson and George Pickens.
