The Los Angeles Rams and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson agreed to terms Friday on a one-year contract.

The finances of the deal weren’t announced, but NFL Network reported that Robinson would get $5 million.

Robinson, 29, played his first season with the Rams in 2023 after signing a free-agent contract valued at $1,165,000, according to Spotrac. He caught 26 passes for 371 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games (four starts).

He caught a touchdown pass in four consecutive games from Dec. 3 to Dec. 21, then had six receptions for a season-high 92 yards in a Dec. 31 win over the New York Giants.

Robinson helped Los Angeles go 7-1 in its last eight regular-season games and became the 10th team in NFL history to advance to the playoffs after a 3-6 or worse start. He would have become an unrestricted free agent next month.

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Robinson in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He has caught 219 passes for 2,508 yards and 20 touchdowns in his career playing for the Chiefs (2016-21), the Baltimore Ravens (2022) and the Rams.

In another move Friday, the Rams tendered a contract to exclusive rights free agent running back Ronnie Rivers.

Rivers, 25, rushed 32 times for 129 yards in nine games (one start) with Los Angeles last season, and he has totaled 150 yards on 41 attempts in 17 games (two starts) with Los Angeles since 2022. Rivers also has 10 career receptions for 51 yards.
