The NFL offseason is beginning to pick up steam as the free agency period quickly approaches.
With that in mind, it sounds like the Los Angeles Rams are aiming to trade a veteran wide receiver.
According to Tom Pelissero, LA has given “Allen Robinson’s agents permission to seek a trade.” Additionally, the franchise “is willing to pay a portion of Robinson’s $15.25 million guaranteed salary to facilitate a deal.”

Based on the season Allen Robinson just had though, NFL fans aren’t sure how big the market is for the Rams to make a trade.
If anything, Los Angeles might have to pay a majority of his contract to get a deal done. At least that’s what fans believe needs to happen.
We’ve all seen the last few years, who would trade for him? Get him as a cheap free agent, sure, but I’m not giving up any draft capital for a guy who couldn’t even be #1 on the bears (no offense bears fans)

A ton of fans think there is no interest in the former star receiver.

This might be true. The Rams probably aren’t going to cut much cap space if they find a trade partner.
That portion would be 10 million.

Very true. Los Angeles can focus on getting younger while Robinson finds a new home.
Would be a win/win for both Rams and ARob if he's able to suit up for someone else next yr..

Keep an eye on this situation, as the best-case scenario for the Rams is to trade Allen Robinson. It’s just not clear which team will be interested in making a deal.
