In a move aimed at strengthening their receiving corps, the Los Angeles Rams have signed former Chiefs and Ravens wide receiver Demarcus Robinson to a contract, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Robinson spent last season with the Ravens, where he showcased his abilities by recording 48 receptions for 458 yards and two touchdowns. This marked one of the more productive seasons in his career so far.

Prior to joining the Ravens, Robinson spent six seasons with the Chiefs, consistently featuring as a starter in Andy Reid’s offense. Notably, Robinson was part of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl-winning team in the 2019 season, defeating the San Francisco 49ers.

With the Rams, Robinson is expected to assume a depth role this season while also competing for playing time. The team’s star receiver, Cooper Kupp, primarily operates in the slot, which opens up opportunities for Robinson to vie for playing time alongside Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek.

Drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Chiefs, Robinson had a successful tenure with the team, contributing significantly to their offense. Over his six years in Kansas City, he accumulated 145 receptions for 1,679 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The Rams’ decision to acquire Demarcus Robinson is part of their ongoing efforts to assemble a formidable team that can compete at the highest level. With a talented roster still, the Rams are positioning themselves as playoff contenders in the upcoming season.
