Originally written August 12, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Free agent wide receiver Laurent Robinson has visited a bunch of teams this offseason and one team that wanted to sign him was the New England Patriots, but they were scared off by his concussion history, according to the Boston Globe. Poor Laurent Robinson. In 2011 the wide receiver had a career year, catching 11 touchdowns for Dallas and turning it into five-year, $32.5 million contract with Jacksonville last offseason. But he suffered multiple concussions in 2012, and the Jaguars cut him after one season. Robinson, 28, is getting a lot of interest — he has visited seven teams this offseason, including a workout with the Patriots — but teams are scared of his concussion history. We hear the Patriots wanted to sign him after working him out two weeks ago, but didn’t feel comfortable enough about the concussions to sign him. Robinson is racking up the frequent flier miles. He has visited New England, New York (Jets), San Francisco, Indianapolis, Detroit, New Orleans, and Miami, but can’t get a bite. Perhaps a team will be willing to sign him after Week 1, when his contract is no longer fully guaranteed for the season. The good news for Robinson is that he was recently cleared by a concussion specialist down in Orlando, Florida.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
