Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Denard Robinson’s doesn’t like to tie his shoelaces when he plays, hence the nickname “Shoelace.” “I wasn’t tied, but coach told me to knot it up, so I knotted it up, but loose,” he said. “It’s something I always did my whole life.” Following the team’s final minicamp practice, he had a picture taken to show his shoes tied. (See Photo Attached) “My first year playing football I ran out of them a couple times, and I ran out of one last year,” he said. “As long as they stay on my feet. Coach told me if they come off he’s going to tell me to tie them up.” Coach Gus Bradley said he saw a shoe come off Robinson this week when Robinson got kicked. “If it doesn’t have an impact on the game and it’s within the rules, whatever allows you to play the best,” Bradley said. “It’s comfort level. Do you get your ankles taped or not? Players have a rhythm or a routine they like to follow. As long as it’s within the rules, I’m fine with it.” The Michigan quarterback was a fifth-round pick of a team in dire need of playmakers. The Jags had the NFL announce “running back” from the podium, making their intentions for a guy changing positions immediately clear. Denard Robinson doesn’t like his shoelaces tied, but the Jags have him knotting them loosely, at least. While Robinson can line up in a lot of different spots, he is in the running back meeting room and works with the group in practice.
