Allen Robinson has recently joined the Pittsburgh Steelers after a one-year stint with the Los Angeles Rams.
Despite signing a three-year contract with the Rams, Robinson has taken his talents to Pittsburgh, where he looks to make an instant impact on their young receiving corps.
In a recent interview, Robinson commented on his NFL future, saying “I have a lot of football left in me.”

Robinson only appeared in ten games last season, totaling 33 receptions, 339 yards, and three touchdowns.
For whatever reason, Robinson wasn’t quite able to find his footing within the Rams’ offense.
Now, he will be joining second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett, as the Steelers look to make a splash in the AFC North.
The Steelers have struggled at the quarterback position after the departure of Ben Roethlisberger.
With any luck, adding a veteran player like Robinson will help Pickett’s growth moving forward.
It appears that Robinson is ready to take on the role of a veteran in the locker room, saying “This actually will be the first time in my career that I’ll be the oldest receiver in the room.”
Robinson is 29, and is hungry to play for the Steelers, silencing his doubters that emerged during the 2022 season.
This energy comes on the heels of a season with the Rams that Robinson said that he “didn’t get maybe some of the opportunities that I may have wanted.”
Robinson will certainly get a greater opportunity in Pittsburgh than he did in Los Angeles.
