The Los Angeles Rams decided to build on their Super Bowl winning offense in the offseason by adding Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson to the mix via free agency. The veteran pass-catcher is already garnering buzz in training camp after he made a sick one-handed catch for a touchdown.

Robinson was blanketed in coverage by cornerback Derion Kendrick during a red zone drill, but that simply didn't matter. Quarterback John Wolford dropped a back shoulder pass in the corner of the end zone and Robinson reached out with one hand to snag it. He toe-tapped his feet for a great TD.
It's the exact type of play Robinson was brought in to make. Coaches and teammates have raved about the 28-year-old's ability to make contested catches and be a legitimate red zone threat. He needs to get back to the form he showed in 2014 (14 TD), not the one he showed in 2021 (1 TD).
Going from the quarterback duo of Andy Dalton and Justin Fields to Matthew Stafford should help Robinson return to glory. The Penn State product has accumulated at least 1,000 receiving yards in two of his last three seasons, averaging 5.4 receptions on 8.4 targets per game during that span.
Robinson is set to replace the role Roberts Woods played before he was traded to the Tennessee Titans. While an ACL tear held Woods to only nine games in 2021, he was able to log 556 yards and 4 touchdowns on 45 receptions. Cracking the 1,000-yard mark this fall is a realistic goal for Robinson.
The Rams have odds set at +1100 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
