Flipped to Steelers in pick swap
The Steelers have agreed to acquire Robinson (foot) and the No. 251 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft from the Rams in exchange for the No. 234 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Robinson is on his way to Pittsburgh on Tuesday afternoon and will take his physical Wednesday. In order to facilitate the deal, the Rams are paying $10.25 million of the wide receiver's 2023 salary, while the Steelers cover the remaining $5 million. With Pittsburgh, Robinson figures to be kicking inside to the slot while Diontae Johnson and George Pickens remain on the outside. Robinson had a miserable 2022 with the Rams, showing little chemistry with Matthew Stafford after Stafford sat out much of the offseason program resting his elbow. Robinson turns 30 in August and shouldn't be counted on to return meaningful fantasy numbers in Pittsburgh, as Kenny Pickett doesn't figure to be any kind of upgrade at quarterback, but there's no direction to go but up following a 2022 that ended prematurely with a broken foot in Week 11. Robinson should be recovered in time for a normal training camp.
