DT - LAR - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
The Los Angeles Rams have placed DT A'Shawn Robinson on the Active/Non-Football Injury list.
It's currently unknown why Robinson was placed on the Non-Football Injury list but the Rams should provide more information in a timely manner. The Rams signed the 24-year-old nose tackle to a two year, $17 million contract back in March after he recorded 40 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble across 13 games for the Lions in 2019. Robinson was listed as the starting nose tackle for the Rams heading into camp.
Former Lions DT A’Shawn Robinson has agreed to a two-year, $17M deal with the Los Angeles Rams, per his agent, Sean Kiernan of Select Sports.
Robinson, a 2016 second-round draft pick out of Alabama, has played four seasons with the Lions. He’s been a beast for them up front, and will look to continue his solid play as he heads west to play for the Rams.
A’Shawn Robinson finished Monday’s 23-22 loss to the Packers with seven total tackles (five solo) and a forced fumble.
Robinson is currently third on the team in total tackles (19) through Week 6. He should be left on waivers in most leagues, but his performance Monday night warrants keeping him on fantasy radars moving forward.
The Lions placed defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson (knee) on season-ending injured reserve Friday.
Robinson was not going to be able to play in Sunday’s season finale against the Packers so the team opted to place him on IR and sign defensive end Mitchell Loewen off waivers from the Saints. Robinson finishes the season with 49 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 13 games.
With the fifteenth pick of the second round, the Detroit Lions have added Alabama defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson.
Robinson is a well-regarded run stopper with an impressive build and will add serious toughness to the interior of Detroit's defensive line, which is currently manned by several inexperienced tackles and an aging Haloti Ngata. While he isn't an incredibly aggressive pass rusher, the Lions can rely on for first-round choice Ezekiel Ansah for sack production, and will lean on Robinson to help them return to their league-leading 2014 defensive form. Robinson was commonly regarded as a first-round pick, and is a serious value at number 46 overall.
