Offseason position reset: Wide receiver

With the offseason program wrapped and training camp coming up in late July, will be taking an updated look at positions on the team's roster.

Up next: Wide receiver.


Key offseason moves

  • Drafted Puka Nacua in the fifth round of this year's draft. While Ben Skowronek and Tutu Atwell gained more experience last year, Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson sidelined by injury showed the need for additional depth at wide receiver. Rams head coach Sean McVay said Nacua will compete for a role.
  • Traded Allen Robinson II to the Steelers in March. McVay said this spring that the coaching staff was operating under the assumption they'd be working on maximizing Robinson's skillset after 2022 didn't meet expectations until that deal with Pittsburgh came together.
  • Signed wide receivers Demarcus Robinson and Tyler Johnson. The two veteran receivers provide experience and depth to the group.
