A big catch for the Steelers

A big catch for the Steelers?

It looks like the Pittsburgh Steelers are about to get their hands on Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Allen Robinson II.

According to NFL Network, a deal will be announced once the 29-year veteran successfully passes the medical exam.

California’s seventh-round pick in the next draft would accompany Robinson II to Pittsburgh. Picking the Steelers in the same round would go in the opposite direction.

Also, the Rams would pay $10.25 million of the footballer’s salary in 2023. The Steelers would therefore pay $5 million for his services.

Robinson II joined the Rams in 2022 after playing four seasons with the Chicago Bears and as many campaigns with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Penn State product only played 10 games last year. He put his hands on 33 balls for 339 yards and three touchdowns.

With the Steelers, Robinson II would join a group of receivers that already includes Diontae Johnson, George Pickens and Calvin Austin.

Second choice available?

As for the Houston Texans, the organization would be open to the idea of ​​swapping the runner-up overall at the next NFL auction.

“We are ready to listen,” CEO Nick Caserio said at a news conference on Monday.

This is a surprise given that the majority of pundits assume the Texans will pick a quarterback with their first pick and expect the top prospects at that position to be picked very quickly in the first round.

“Anything is possible,” Caserio replied when asked about not picking a quarterback.

“There are several good young quarterbacks coming out early in the draft and we want to add a young quarterback to our team,” head coach DeMeco Ryans said in early April.

The Texans have made several offensive acquisitions this offseason. They got their hands on tight end Dalton Schultz, wide receivers Robert Woods and Noah Brown, and offensive lineman Shaq Mason.
