Demarcus Robinson could find healthy free agent market

Demarcus Robinson finished fourth on the Chiefs in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns last season. But the receiver can expect to find a healthy free agent market in March.

That means his price could be too rich for the Chiefs to keep.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer recently reported the Eagles have Robinson “in their sights,” and Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media reported Monday that the Giants are “expected to pursue” Robinson when free agency opens.

The Chiefs made Robinson a fourth-round choice in 2016, and he has fulfilled his rookie contract.

He is coming off a career-best season with 32 catches for 449 yards and four touchdowns. Robinson added three catches for 35 yards in three postseason games, though none came in the Super Bowl.

The Giants and Eagles are two of several teams in search of help at receiver.

  1. I hate saying this as a life long Kansas Citian and a fan of the Chiefs but this guy asking for number 1 or number 2 money is absurd . He’ll get exposed , he’s really fast but was never clutch, never a go to guy and his hands were never the best.

    Giants and Eagles would be making a mistake .

  2. Like this guy a ton, but he’s the Chiefs 4th receiver. His best path to opportunity at this point is to go elsewhere. Hoping for the best for him. Thanks for your time in KC, DRob.

  3. honestly if someone else wants to pay him let them, i think he might become a good reciever but i trust drafting someone more than paying him a big salary. hardman is going to get more touches next year anyway

  4. It’ll be the usual scenario where he’ll get too big a deal, get cut, go back if the chiefs even need him at that point. Or he’ll realize he’s over paid and have a “nagging injury” so whoever can’t part without a settlement. Players gotta work the system to secure their one or two big pay days before it’s all over.

  5. Remember when Manning made Eric Decker look better than he really was? Then the Jets overpaid Decker. Same thing will happen here.

    The names have changed but the game is still the same.
