Sometimes, things happen for a reason. At other times, it seems as though events occur haphazardly. For the LA Rams to win Super Bowl LVI, I could spend hours reengineering each event that ultimately led to the Rams holding the winning score when the NFL Championship Game ended. There are a dozen or so events that directly led to getting there. But there are about five dozen less obvious events or players who were also involved. Perhaps someday I will sit down, gather my thought, and put them all down in one huge article.
But I’m not going to today.
Instead, I will be borrowing your time and attention to focus on one of the contributing factors that may place the LA Rams back into competing for the Super Bowl this year. That contributing factor? Signing free-agent wide receiver Allen Robinson to the roster.
How did it all come together?
The tale of how it all came together is worth listening to:
The Rams boast the perfect setting for Allen Robinson. Because the team already has an established WR1 in Cooper Kupp, the pressure is not on Robinson to deliver out of the gates. But even if the offense can resuscitate the running game, veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford loves to throw the ball.
And head coach Sean McVay will want to see what his new toy can do in the offense.
Robinson will flourish in this offense because he is as gritty and determined to do so as Stafford. And the two will have many reasons to connect throughout the season.
