Allen Robinson: Playing in Sean McVay’s offense will bring the best out of me

The Rams added receiver Allen Robinson in free agency, giving him a reported three-year deal worth $46.5 million.

A second-round pick in the 2014 draft, Robinson has put together some strong seasons for Jacksonville and Chicago, eclipsing 1,000 yards three times. But he’s only reached the Pro Bowl once — back in 2015 when he caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and led the league with 14 touchdowns.

Coming off a 2021 season in which he played only 12 games and caught 38 passes for 410 yards with one score, Robinson is looking forward to playing under head coach Sean McVay in Los Angeles.

“Coach McVay and the offense that he’s put together and offense that these guys run, it’s been a top offense in the league for a reason,” Robinson said this week, via Cameron DaSilva of USA Today. “I truly believe that it’ll bring the best out of me, and I’ll be able to display all the elements of my game.”

Robinson added that he’s enjoyed how McVay “allows players to play,” even as the coach makes corrections and adjustments.

“It’s his coaching style that truly allows players to play freely and then we just correct off of that,” Robinson said. “So whenever I step onto the field, I’m able to be myself. And if I do mess up something or am wrong here, he’ll correct me and we’ll just keep it pushing. Every time I step on the field, I feel like I can be and play at my best self.”

In McVay’s offense with Matthew Stafford at quarterback, Robinson is primed for a strong 2022 playing alongside receivers Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson.

  1. A Rob is a great receiver. He’s done more with lousy QB’s than any other receiver in the last eight years.

    I hope he balks out with Stafford.

  2. This guy is fantastic. Just thinking about the QBs and mediocre coaching he’s been through over the years– he is going to be incredible with the Rams. Happy for him.

  3. A Rob is a great receiver. He’s done more with lousy QB’s than any other receiver in the last eight years.

    I hope he balls out with Stafford.

  4. An embarrassment for the Bears (one of many spanning decades) that the team was not able to take advantage of Allen Robinson’s talent.

  5. “It’s his coaching style that truly allows players to play freely and then we just correct off of that,” Robinson said. “So whenever I step onto the field, I’m able to be myself.

    LOL – Read between the lines and Nagy just got B-slapped by Robinson 🙂

  6. This guy is gonna thrive on the Rams. With Kupp clearing routes for him, they’ll be twisting DBs in knots. Put OBJ back in the mix and it’ll be a show.

  7. A-Rob over valued himself last season and then decided to take the season off out of spite. He’s getting much less this season but has a chance for a bounce back but he can’t take the season off again.

  8. Nagy was the awful at play calling, the subtle digs will continue. Fangio knew he was in over his head and took the HC job in Denver. That move sucked for the Bears, but good for him. Robinson definitely made bad QBs look good, I hope he has a monster season in LA.

  9. Ayyyyyy, at least Robinson is on a competitor now! Good for him, he will do well for himself and the Rams.

  10. If he gets his feelings hurt, he will check out like last year when he making $19m.
