Laurent Robinson scheduled for visit with Saints

Giants Jaguars Football AP

Wide receiver Laurent Robinson has been making the rounds recently in search of a job for the 2013 season and his tour’s next stop will be in New Orleans.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that Robinson will work out for the Saints on Monday. Robinson has already visited with the Jets, Dolphins, Lions and 49ers, but has seen each team look in a different direction to fill their needs at wide receiver.

The Saints have Marques Colston on the PUP list because of a foot injury and they saw a couple of other receivers get nicked up during Saturday’s scrimmage. If he winds up signing with the Saints, Robinson would give them at least another body to use at practice with numbers a little thinner than the team would like.

Of course, Robinson’s health is a bit of a question. He suffered a series of concussions while with the Jaguars last year, causing him to miss nine games and leading to a significant drop in production from his 2011 campaign in Dallas.

    hmmm. I hope that doesn’t mean we are not being told something – defensive looks make sense – offensive looks can be scary…

    1) I would agree with the idea that if the Saints sign him its just because they need WRs to throw the ball to with Morgan, Tanner, and Fayson going down in the scrimmage yesterday, and
    2) If he signs he better stay away from Vaccaro or he’ll be down with another concussion in no time.

    I wouldn’t waste my time with him. How many teams has he tried out for in the last week.. Jets, Lions, Dolphins, and none of them offered him a contract. He’s damaged goods and he has nothing left.
