Robinson: Playing in Rams' offense will 'bring the best out of me'
"Coach (Sean) McVay and the offense he's put together, the offense these guys run, it's been a top offense in the league for a reason," Robinson said Thursday, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic. "I truly believe that it'll bring the best out of me and I'll be able to display all of the elements of my game."
Robinson spent the last four campaigns with the Bears, who've struggled offensively in recent years. Injuries limited the former Pro Bowler to only 12 appearances last season, and he finished with just 38 catches, 410 yards, and one touchdown.
The 28-year-old then inked a three-year, $46.5-million deal with the reigning Super Bowl champions in free agency.
"It's been exciting since Day 1," he said. "I think the most exciting part about it is when you're playing alongside guys like (quarterback) Matthew Stafford, (wide receiver) Cooper Kupp, when you have coach McVay as your coach, (Eric Yarber) as your receiver coach, and you have these people who have such a great experience just in football in general ... you can talk football, and it's a constant, process-driven group."
He added, "Every time you step out on the field you feel like you can get better at things."
Los Angeles' offense ranked seventh in points and ninth in yards last season, their first with Stafford under center. Kupp put on a show of his own, leading the NFL in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown catches en route to winning the 2021 Offensive Player of the Year award.
Robinson had a career year with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015, registering 1,400 yards and an NFL-leading 14 touchdowns. He topped 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons with Chicago in 2019 and '20 before regressing in 2021.
