The cap-strapped Los Angeles Rams have already bid farewell to three key starters in cornerback Jalen Ramsey (traded to the Miami Dolphins) as well as linebackers Bobby Wagner and Leonard Floyd (both released from their contracts).
But with Sean McVay committing to at least another year of coaching, the Rams don’t appear ready to begin a rebuild just yet. Rather, it looks like GM Les Snead hopes to go for it again with a core led by Aaron Donald, Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp.
That said, Snead would probably be happy to unload the final two years of Allen Robinson’s contract. The former Pro Bowler signed a three-year deal worth $46.5 million last offseason but greatly struggled in LA’s offense, finishing with 33 catches for 339 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.
Bleacher Report’s Alex Kay proposed one NFL Draft trade for all 32 teams to make. For the Rams, Kay suggested dealing Robinson to the Green Bay Packers for a seventh-round draft choice (256th overall) in next month’s draft:

“The Packers may be one of the squads willing to take a flier on A-Rob for the right price. His Pro Bowl upside may be worth them giving up a late-round pick, even after he only caught a pedestrian 33 passes for 339 yards and three scores in 10 games last year.
While the Day 3 pick the Rams receive in return won’t do much to help the remodel, getting Robinson off the books—even if it means they have to pay some of his salary—is a win at this point.”
The Packers will need help at receiver after losing top wideout Allen Lazard to the New York Jets in free agency. Last week, quarterback Aaron Rodgers indicated that he’ll soon be a Jet, and that they just have to sort out the compensation with Green Bay.
So the Packers will presumably move forward with 2020 first-rounder Jordan Love. The latter has a nice set of weapons in running backs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon plus wide receivers Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to add a former Pro Bowl pass-catcher like Robinson to the offense if the price is right.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
