On Thursday, US time, ESPN reporters reported that the Rams will sign wide receiver Allen Robinson to a three-year, $45 million contract, which includes a $30 million guarantee.
The Rams still have cap space left and are also trying to keep wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham suffered a knee injury in the Super Bowl and may be too late to start the 2022 season. After joining the Rams, Beckham participated in 8 regular season games and 4 playoff games, completed 48 catches, advanced 593 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Robinson signed a three-year, $42 million contract with the Bears in 2018 and received over 1,000 yards in both the 2019 and 2020 seasons, but the Bears failed to complete long-term contract negotiations with him before the 2021 season. The Bears did not use the franchise tag on him this year, and Robinson had to enter the free market to test the waters.
In eight seasons, Robinson had 495 catches for 6,409 yards and 40 touchdowns.
On Wednesday, US time, Panthers coach Matt Rhule said that quarterback Sam Darnold will replace Cam Newton in the starting lineup.
Danold suffered a shoulder injury in the ninth week of the game and was later added to the injury reserve list. Newton led the team to defeat in the last five games.
Lu said: “Sam has made a lot of effort to get back to his state. I think he also showed some good parts last week…. We will also give him the opportunity to show his ability later.”
Darnold and Newton played in the 32-6 loss to the Buccaneers. He completed 15 of 32 passes and advanced 190 yards. The Panthers have been determined to miss the playoffs, and Darnold is the only quarterback with a contract next season. Lu therefore wanted to give him a better evaluation.
“I hope he can play the performance of the first game: pass the ball in time and have a strong desire to attack.” Lu said, “I hope he plays more aggressively, cooperates with the system, and attacks aggressively.”
On Wednesday, US time, Texans coach David Culley (David Culley) confirmed that the team has given up linebacker Zach Cunningham (Zach Cunningham).
Cunningham was suspended for one game last week for being late for the new crown test. This is the second time he has been punished for violating team rules this season.
Cali said: “We have our own standards, and he has not always met them. I think I made the best decision for the team. This is about the team, not the individual.”
Cunningham was a 2017 second-round pick and will renew his 4-year $58 million contract with the team in 2020. Cunningham has completed 67 tackles this season and forced a drop once. If a team chooses to claim Cunningham, the Texans can save $275,000 in salary space. At present, they have determined that what they need to bear is US$5.5 million this year and US$12.8 million in dead money next year.
