Hunter Renfrow: I’m excited to watch Demarcus Robinson in training camp

The Raiders’ marquee addition at receiver this offseason was Devante Adams.

But the team also brought in a role player from a division rival who could have a significant impact on the offense.

Las Vegas signed Demarcus Robinson to a one-year deal in March, following Robinson’s six seasons with Kansas City to begin his career. As veterans reported to training camp on Wednesday, Robbins’s new teammate Hunter Renfrow said he’s gotten a positive impression of the veteran receiver from the time they’ve spent together this offseason.

“He’s explosive. He can get on the outside and take the top off the defense,” Renfrow said in his press conference. “He’s smart. He has good body control — running down the red line, he has a good feel for not adjusting to the ball too soon and covering himself up. So just very intelligent and very smart. And excited to watch him this training camp. I haven’t been around him too much, but just watching him from afar, he was always someone we didn’t want to play against.”

Of the Chiefs’ three divisional opponents, Robinson was easily the most productive against the Raiders. In 12 contests against the franchise, Robinson caught 24 passes for 437 yards with three touchdowns. He had 21 catches for 203 yards in 12 games against Denver and 16 catches for 143 yards with two TDs against the Chargers.

The Raiders are going to rely on Adams, Renfrow, and tight end Darren Waller at the top of their receiving corps. But Robinson is likely going to have to make some key plays along the way if the team is going to compete at the top of the AFC West.

  1. renfrow, classy and very under rated wr, just hope having too many wr’s who think they’re 1 doesnt spoil the chemistry

  2. I love it. As a Chiefs fan, if the Raiders are seriously counting on Robinson they are in huge trouble. But if they are counting on him fumbling, carrying the ball in one hand precipitously, and lest we forget his penchant for running the wrong way, they’ve got their man.

  3. Mack Hollins is probably gonna be the 3rd guy. And Dave if you think the Raiders are really “counting” on Robinson, you’re not paying attention. You realize they have DA, Renfrow and Waller, right? Splitting time as the 4th option with Hollins and Cole isn’t something to love.

  4. I would be excited to finish the season in last place too if I was Hunter Renfrow. The sooner this season is over the better for the little to no talent on this team. Adams and Renfrow will be on other teams in the NFL for the 2023 season and rightfully so.

    Raiders will be lucky to have 6 wins this season.

  5. All this excitement, wait until week 6 and the Raiders are 2-4!

    Chiefs 14-3
    Chargers 12-5
    Broncos 10-7
    Raiders 5-12

    If he was on your Dolphins his production would be doubled, if not tripled.

    Raiders are total disaster.

    So you’re saying that if Hunter Renfrow played in MIami he would have had 206 receptions(double his 2021 Raider stat) or 309 receptions (triple) as well as 18 TD’s (double) or 27 TD’s (triple) all with Tua as his QB. Interesting take

    Also Raiders 31 Miami 28 9/26 2021.
