Steelers Make Allen Robinson II Trade Official



Steelers WR Allen Robinson II

The Steelers have made the Allen Robinson II trade official, the team announced Friday morning. Pittsburgh will trade the 234th overall pick in the seventh round for the 251st overall selection and Robinson.

Robinson passed his physical two days ago and that set in motion the wheels to get the trade approved. At this point, it seems extremely likely that Robinson will be the third wide receiver and starting slot receiver, as that is where he slots in perfectly in the offense right now.

In addition, the Rams are converting $5 million of Robinson’s salary into a signing bonus, in addition to the roster bonus and signing bonus they have already paid him, the Steelers will pay him just $5 million for the 2023 season.
If the Steelers wish to retain Robinson for 2024, they will owe him $10 million. They can release him after 2023 with no salary cap penalty after the deal was reworked on Thursday.

In 10 games in 2022, Robinson caught 33 passes for 339 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Penn State product has 528 catches for 6,748 yards and 43 scores in his 9-year NFL career. Allen Robinson spent just one season with the Rams after beginning his career with the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Over his 110-game career, Robinson has amassed over 5000 yards and 500 receptions in his storied career. The team met with multiple wide receivers in the NFL Draft but it seems that they made the move to try and capitalize on Robinson and what he could potentially bring to the team.
