According to the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys may look into signing free agent wide receiver Laurent Robinson after being released by the Jaguars. The biggest concern with Robinson is that he suffered four concussions last season and only played in seven games.  He also has an ankle injury that’s a bit of a concern. It was a good year financially for Robinson _ the contract guaranteed him $14 million _ but not competitively. He suffered four concussions and managed to play in only seven games. Robinson caught 24 passes for 252 yards and no touchdowns for the Jaguars. He caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns in his only season with the Cowboys. Robinson’s health is a concern, and not just the concussions. There are questions to be answered about an ankle injury. The Cowboys really need a third receiver, but I’m not sure Robinson is that guy.  They’re going to need to look to the draft to add depth at the receiver position, since they don’t have much cap room to work with in free agency.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

  • After 4 concussions, this guy shouldn't be allowed to play football for his own sake.
  • Wow great! If true to form, the Cowboys will hurry and sign him to a long term high dollar contract...as they appear to be worried about other signing the great talent after injuries. Like the value of a player with a blown out achilles, concussions should bring him a good contract from GM Jerry.

Smith: Romo not comfortable behind O-line

Emmitt Smith ran behind some of the best offensive lines in league history during his time with the Dallas Cowboys. It's obvious that the Cowboys' current front five doesn't compare to those groups.

Calling the plays still a sore spot with Jason Garrett

Give it to Jason Garrett, he has held off owner Jerry Jones on calling  plays for three months. Garrett at the NFL meetings seems more dug in than ever. They’ll only throw dirt on Garrett’s grave, so if he’s going down it’s going to be him calling the shots. He’s been graceful in avoiding the issue as much as he can, but anyone can see he’s clearly not okay with giving...

Dallas Cowboy Fans: Stop Blaming Tony Romo!!
