Vikings sign Aldrick Robinson

The Vikings are adding some speed at wide receiver.

Veteran free agent Aldrick Robinson will sign with Minnesota, according to NFL Network.

Last year Robinson played in all 16 games with the 49ers, catching 19 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns. He was cut at the end of the preseason this year.

Drafted by Washington in 2011, Robinson spent four years there and one year in Atlanta.

Robinson would likely be the Vikings’ fourth receiver, behind Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and Laquon Treadwell.

  1. That not why they are signing him, of course. This is: “#11, you’ve now reached your quota of dropped passes before the bye. Your next flub of a good pass gets Mr Robinson into third slot.”

  2. Ha ha ha ha ha, no I’m hoping that we no longer need a kicker. The offense will be more aggressive and go downfield more often, therefore score more touchdowns and blow other teams out. No Treaddrop won’t be the number 3 receiver any longer. This guy will supplant him or someone else will. I love it! Improve the roster, all the time!!! Skol Vikings!

  3. Bad game for both teams, Vikings should have a new kicker & receiver by the end of the week. Will the Packers have a new coach?

  4. Unfortunately offensive line help is very hard to find at this point.
    With the Rams coming up in a few weeks…..won’t be pretty.
    If Akiem Hicks keeps providing interior pass rush, and with Mack and Floyd on the edge, the Vikings will struggle to match up with the Bears.
    Lot of football left to play, though. Weeks 1,2,and 3 aren’t the best barometer.

  5. Waiting for the follow up story where Treadwell is cut.

    And then the follow up to the follow up where the Patriots sign Treadwell.

  6. for a team weak at LT (where did Philly beat them down most last year?) one would think OL help would be sought after first, followed closely by a new kicker;

    Behind Treadwell??? You’re kidding right?
    ========================
    He’ll be behind Treadwell only to pick up footballs.

    Cousins hitting Diggs for that 75 yarder was awesome.

    My concern is if the O-line can hold long enough for these plays to develope.

    ————————————–
    What was missed in all the Treadwell and Carlson talk is O’Neil stepped in and had a solid quarter of play after Hill went down. You get Pat back hopefully soon and the starting 5 can be solid, I worry about their depth up and down the the O-line though

  9. Fourth behind Treadwell? Are you kidding?

    I’m calling Treadwell “Treadmill” from now on. The only running he is going to be doing in a Viking uniform is going to be on a treadmill. He’s done.

    Rudolph is the third receiving option. If we need a 4th option, bring back Beebe. That guy is tough as nails…he makes all three of those catches that Treadmill dropped yesterday and he helps out on special teams. And he is already a fan favorite.

    Just Do It!

  10. Played with Kirk in Washington and Cousins likes the guy…good pick up and love how the Vikings are always, always trying to be better…Other squads trot out their hobbled HOF QB and pray for a win…

  11. Last year Robinson played in all 16 games with the 49ers, catching 19 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns.

    That’s a per game average of 1.2 catches for 16 yards.
    Not exactly better then Treadwell.

    I wouldn’t be heaping praise on this signing.

    Have you seen Treadwell’s career numbers? He wishes he could average that.

  13. Mike Preifer is the one who recommended Daniel Carlson to Spielman. He also recommended Blair Walsh. I think the problem isn’t the kicker they choose, its the coach that screws them up. How else can you explain unblocked free rushers on punt coverage, 8 missed extra points, 3 straight wide right FGs and no adjustments or even a 27 missed chip shot to advance in the playoffs? Time for Mike to let Mike go.

  14. If he can catch a ball thrown at his numbers he’ll be 100% better than Treadwell. Look forward to watching him play. New kicker and new receiver in the same week. That’s not like Zimmer, but good to see.

  15. The way I have seen Treadwell snag amazing catches in practice it seriously makes me wonder if Laquon isn’t being ASKED to help with some Vegas numbers (if you know what I mean) It happened with the White Sox! Who knows how many NFL players are approached about these fixing things! You KNOW it has to happen..
    Or he is just a DOLT!

  16. He will be the 3rd Receiver, Treadwell is worthless, he has dropped more passes than ANY other receiver I have ever seen, his rout running is terrible. In this league it is very obvious who will make it and who won’t fairly early in their 1st action!
    It took him 2 years to learn routs, I haven’t found a solution to catching other than make him practice with Boxing gloves on!
