Jaguars waive Laurent Robinson

Last March, the Jaguars gave wide receiver Laurent Robinson a five-year, $32.5 million contract.

On Wednesday, they let him go.

Ryan O’ Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that the Jaguars have waived Robinson. Per O’Halloran, Robinson, who suffered four concussions in 2012,  passed a physical with Jacksonville.

Limited to just seven games a season ago, Robinson caught 24 passes for 252 yards and no touchdowns.

For Robinson, the primary concern his health. (Via NFL.com, Robinson told NFL Network’s Andrea Kremer of the effects of the concussions that he suffered a season ago.) If healthy, it’s possible he could appeal as a slot receiver option for Dallas, with whom he had his greatest pro success in 2011.

UPDATE 12:04 P.M. ET: Mark Long of The Associated Press reports that Robinson said he didn’t feel well when working out on Tuesday and told the team as much. Long also noted that Robinson says he wishes to keep playing.

    Laurent Robinson. He can’t even hold Cecil’s Shorts.

    The Jaguars are being cronically tightfisted ahead of that permanent road trip to London.

    He was a good guy, but those concussions caught up with him. Another release from the previous regimes mistakes. At least we have two very good receivers in Blackmon and Shorts.

    I saw that happening the minute he signed with them. He was great for Dallas but people didn’t game plan for him because they didn’t even know him lol. Even the master of handing out bad contracts to guys who show a flash of brilliance Jerry wasn’t gonna pay this dude what he was gonna get

    Are the Ravens & Jags owners competing for 2014 1st draft pick by getting rid of players who might make them accidentally win 3+ games?

    This is what new GM Dave Caldwell alluded to when he said the last regime made some desperate moves in FA. Addition through subtraction. We cut 40 more guys and we are in the SB.

    And this is why no WRs want to play in Minny. A QB like Gabbert or Ponder is a death sentence for your career.

    Come back to the cowboys!!!!!

  9. flavordave says: Mar 13, 2013 12:07 PM

    he should purchase a plane ticket to Washington they desperately need wide receivers

  10. doomsdaydefensetx says: Mar 13, 2013 12:09 PM

    Should have stayed in Dallas. Now we got #17 Dwayne Harris the Predator

  11. billyjaguar says: Mar 13, 2013 12:13 PM

    Wake me when Gabbert has been released.

  12. mn2long says: Mar 13, 2013 12:16 PM

    Welcom back to Dallas on a 1 year minimum contract with incentives.

  13. thegame2love says: Mar 13, 2013 12:18 PM

    Dallas was lucky to get production for most of one season from Robinson. Atlanta, St Louis, and Jacksonville however got the real chronically injured Robinson.

  14. niubears says: Mar 13, 2013 12:19 PM

    My money is on him retiring or at least sitting out another year. Way too many concussions for one season. His brain will never be the same.

    49ERS

    Hey “logical voice” you sound like another uneducated fan who knows nothing about the jags. For the love of God people, the jags are NOT moving to LA, London or anywhere else for that matter! Simply look up the attendance figures and you will see we are doing pretty good! And we suck!!

  17. socalmaverick says: Mar 13, 2013 1:21 PM

    Drew Brees needs an explanation.

  18. micknangold says: Mar 13, 2013 1:22 PM

    Four concussions in one year…how did he possibly pass a physical and still have symptoms yesterday? That’s fishy.

  19. timebandit24 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:25 PM

    Toolfan74, you obviously don’t know how bad logicalvoicesays is, this is the king of complete and utter lunacy and ravenator is his court jester.

  20. benroethlisberger7 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:26 PM

    Told you this would happen.

  21. toneneo says: Mar 13, 2013 1:30 PM

    I’ve watched 95% of every Jags game. Its not Gabbert’s fault he wasn’t as good as advertised. He got paid, got comfortable coming home (Florida boy), got too many head hits and didn’t produce. He didn’t get open enough. And when he was open, he barely caught the dang ball for a young QB in a terrible offense, no running game, young WRs, injured o-line and lame duck coaching staffs in his first 2 years.

    Jags want the number 1 pick next year. This season will be awful. I don’t blame them though. The reward is the Killer Clown from outer space!

    J. CLOWNEY is the goal for the jags this year… plain and simple. They have a pretty loyal fan base that will suffer through this year and come back next year to see this beast play.

    He’s a decent WR but a system babby. Welcome back to Dallas.

  24. jags2daship says: Mar 13, 2013 1:53 PM

    The dude had two concussions in one game. His career is toast. I hope he invested that signing bonus wisely. I knew he would be a bust as soon as the ink went down on that wasted contract. He was taking away playing time from guys who actually wanted to be productive.

  25. ronaldmexico7 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:58 PM

    What a misnomer…logicalvoicesays. Anyway, Robinson went for the money and look what happened. Romo made him, just like he makes a lot of the receivers on his team. Blaine Gabbert is horrible, and Robinson found that out first hand.

  26. jm91rs says: Mar 13, 2013 2:18 PM

    I thought you couldn’t cut a guy in the middle of a contract if he’s injured? He’s saying he still feels the effects of the concussions, they might have to pay him some money here.

    I know a guy that got cut by the patriots while he was still hurt from a pre-season injury and he got a nice fat check after filing a grievance. And I’m pretty sure Mike Golic tells the story of how he had to sign something saying he was healthy because he wanted to get back to practicing. The minute he signed it they cut him. I’m betting there will be more of this story and they’ll have to pay Robinson some money to go away.
