Report: Former Penn State Wideout Allen Robinson Traded To Pittsburgh Steelers

Former Penn State football wide receiver Allen Robinson is reportedly coming back to the state of Pennsylvania.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed to a trade to acquire the 29-year-old wideout from the Los Angeles Rams, pending a physical.

In 2022, Robinson started 10 games for Los Angeles, totaling 339 yards and three touchdowns before suffering a season-ending foot injury.

Around this time last year, Robinson agreed to a three-year, $45 million contract with the Rams. Now, Robinson will reportedly move on to his fourth team heading into his 10th season in the league.

Since being drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014, Robinson has caught 43 touchdowns and totaled 6,748 receiving yards. If he passes the physical, Robinson will join a Steelers offense led by second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett.

While at Penn State, Robinson emerged as a star with 177 catches for 2,479 yards and 17 touchdowns across three seasons. All but three catches and 29 yards came within Robinson’s final two seasons in Happy Valley. The Jaguars selected Robinson in the second round with the No. 61 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
