The 2022 season has been a difficult one for the defending champion Los Angeles Rams. They have struggled to find consistency in any facet of the game, as they are 3-4 after losing to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon.

That was their third loss in the last four games and the schedule isn’t going to get any easier. Their November schedule is a daunting one as they will travel to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9 before hosting the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10. They finish out the month on the road, paying visits to the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs.

Based on how they have performed thus far, the reigning Super Bowl champs could very well have their season teetering on the brink once the calendar turns to December. They will do everything they can to avoid that happening as they have been active in trade talks.

With the deadline set for tomorrow, November 1st, the Rams are looking to shore up some of the holes on their roster. Running back is one position they could have interest in upgrading as they were in on Christian McCaffrey before the Carolina Panthers traded him to the San Francisco 49ers.

Help at wide receiver could also be something they consider as their passing offense has been a mess beyond Cooper Kupp. Brandin Cooks is one player that has been mentioned as a trade target, but the Rams could also look to deal away one of their receivers.

According to Peter King of ProFootballTalk, there is a chance that Allen Robinson is moved ahead of the deadline. Robinson was the team’s big offseason acquisition, signing him away from the Chicago Bears in free agency. He was expected to be a high-end No. 2 option behind Kupp, but things have not panned out.

Robinson is fourth on the team in receiving yards behind tight end Tyler Higbee and wide receiver Ben Skowronek, who operates at times as the team’s fullback. That is certainly not what the Rams had in mind when they signed Robinson to a three-year, $46.5 million contract this past offseason.

It would certainly be shocking to see Los Angeles throw the towel in on Robinson so quickly, but as King stated, he has been ill-fitting. With not much time to turn things around, the Rams have to consider every option, including trading him away in the right deal.
