Robinson is coming off a down year with the Bears, where he missed time due to an injury.
Even with his prior injury history, the Rams are taking a chance with him for 2022.
Robinson is a top receiver, but he will be playing as the number two in Los Angeles.
Will Kupp Be A Factor For Robinson To Improve?
During his time in the NFL, Robinson has been vocal about being the number one receiver on the team.
He has Stafford to ensure that he gets the targets he wants with the Rams.
Stafford’s history shows that he can throw the ball, often doing so.
In 2021 Stafford passed the ball 601 times, completing 404 of those passes.
The passing numbers aren’t close to his record-setting 727 passes when he was in Detroit.
So there will be plenty of opportunities for Robinson to get the ball
He has been vocal over the number of targets that he gets in a game before.
With him being number two behind Kupp, he will be fighting to get the bulk of the passes from Stafford.
He might know this, making him determined to prove that he is a valid number one on the team.
Stafford Is A Better Quarterback Than Those Robinson Has Played With In The Past
Another factor in the revival of Robinson’s reputation as a star receiver is Stafford.
During Robinson’s time with the Jaguars and Bears, they didn’t have an elite quarterback under center.
However, he still posted solid numbers in his career without a high-caliber quarterback passing him the ball.
With Stafford, he has a great quarterback who can get the ball to him and who isn’t afraid to throw the ball either.
Having those things is a game-changer for Robinson, who had quarterbacks like Blake Bortles and Mitch Trubisky.
Keep seeing Allen Robinson linked to #WashingtonFootball. A-Rob has constantly been forced to catch passes on bad teams from the likes of McGloin, Bortles, & Trubisky. Why would A-Rob sign with WFT(especially without a QB) and why wouldn’t the Bears franchise tag him? 🤷♂️ https://t.co/LtMV3yd2VE

With the level of production he made with those quarterbacks, he can easily improve his career numbers with Stafford.
He will need to show Stafford that he can trust him with the ball going into the 2022 season.
With Odell Beckham Jr. Still A Free Agent, Robinson Now Has the Best Chances Of Being A Factor With The Rams
When the Rams picked up Odell Beckham Jr. during the middle of last season, he made an impact with the team.
Now he is a free agent and has yet to be re-signed by the Rams.
With OBJ out of the picture, it looks like Robinson will be filling his shoes for 2022.
With the way that OBJ factored into the Rams playoff run and playoff games, Robinson will have big shoes to fill.
He has proved with his other teams that he can complete the task before him in the past.
So when he does that in 2022, he will complete the revival of his NFL reputation.
