The Los Angeles Rams could be unloading players to free cap space. All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who signed a five-year massive contract extension with the team in 2020, is expected to be dealt this offseason.
Now wide receiver Allen Robinson II could be another name to watch for the Rams, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Several people around the league believe the Ravens have strongly considered using the non-exclusive franchise tag on Lamar Jackson

“Watch for the Los Angeles Rams to potentially unload multiple players, not just cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Receiver Allen Robinson II is a name of note. His career-low 52 targets last season could prompt a desire for change, and the Rams are clearly shedding salary.
“With a weak free agent receiver class, Robinson’s $15.75 million in 2023 cash flow could be a reasonable clip for a new team.”
Robinson II signed a three-year, $46.5 million deal with the Rams last offseason after spending four seasons with the Chicago Bears.
Robinson II was signed to give quarterback Matthew Stafford another weapon in the pass game, but injuries quickly changed their season’s expectations. The Rams were 5-12 in last season and missed the playoffs.
