Earlier this month, the Pittsburgh Steelers added veteran wide receiver Allen Robinson as part of a blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Rams, and it sounds like they’re pleased with the move.

During a press conference this week, Steelers general manager Omar Khan revealed that the team was excited to have Allen Robinson on the team.

“Early on when coach [Mike Tomlin] and I got together after the season and mapped out a plan of what we wanted 2023 to look like, one of the things we were keen on was acquiring a veteran receiver,” Khan said according to Pro Football Talk. “And [we’re] excited that we were able to get it all done with Allen. Once the medical was confirmed to be OK, it was easy for us.”

Robinson dealt with a foot injury throughout the 2022 NFL season, but Khan said that the team “felt really good about him” after giving him a physical before the deal.

“With respect to the medical, I’ll just say that the doctors felt really good about him,” Khan said. “We’re going to be really smart — kind of like we were with Larry Ogunjobi last year. We’re going to be conservative with the approach. We understand the importance of spring ball, but there’s really no games being played until August — so we did the same thing with Cole Holcomb too. We’re going to try to be really smart about that.”

We’ll have to see what kind of impact he’s able to make this season.
