Allen Robinson is on his third team in nine years in the NFL, so he’s been exposed to several different quarterbacks, coaches and schemes. Unfortunately, he mostly played on bad teams with bad quarterback play, which resulted in inconsistent numbers from him.
His worst season came last year with the Bears when he caught just 38 passes for 410 yards and a touchdown in 12 games played, but there’s plenty of reason to believe he’ll bounce back in 2022 with the Bears. rams.
In a more stable situation with Sean McVay as coach and Matthew Stafford at center, Robinson should feel confident heading into this season. he’s still early in his tenure in Los Angeles, but he’s already enjoyed his time with the Rams so far, appreciating their coaching style.
“Honestly, it was a great transition. To be able to join this culture and this team, to be able to come here and work every day,” Robinson said in an interview recently. “Coach McVay trains us hard, detailed and I think that’s something for a vet guy that I can appreciate. It’s very detailed, specific coaching, it helps me learn, it allows me to ask questions and to be able to learn things fairly quickly.
Robinson won’t be the No. 1 receiver in Los Angeles like he used to be with the Jaguars and Bears, but that could be a good thing. It will take the pressure off him of being the go-to guy, with that title likely going to Cooper Kupp in 2022.
The Rams’ scheme is also much more receiver-friendly than Chicago’s, with McVay doing a great job opening up guys with creative road combinations. All in all, Robinson should have a great year with Los Angeles.
