Brandon George of Dallas News writes that wide receiver Laurent Robinson has admitted that he’s always wanted to play for the Cowboys.

Robinson is quickly gaining popularity among the fan base especially after his big day last Sunday when he caught seven catches for a career-high 116 yards in the Cowboys’ 34-30 loss.

George quotes Robinson’s mother Linda Brown, who said her son called her after his visit to Dallas while still with the Chargers.

“He said, ‘Mom, I would love to play for the Cowboys,’” Brown said. “I said, ‘I don’t want to even hear it. You’re a Charger!’ I was thinking in my mind that it’s never going to happen. And now it’s all worked out for the best. He loves it in Dallas.”

Robinson is making his way up the team’s depth chart and has now moved into the team’s third receiver spot -after vaulting ahead of Kevin Ogletree who continues to struggle.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett spoke glowingly about his new-found talent at wide receiver:

“I thought he played really well in this most recent game. I thought he got off to a really good start in the Washington game for someone who hasn’t been with us for training camp and was on and off our roster in the early part of the season. He really stepped in and understood what to do and how to do it.”

“The quarterbacks have a real comfort level throwing the ball to him. I think has the ability to run past defenders but also make some plays underneath. I think he’s played well and he’s only going to improve. He goes about it the right way, works very hard. We’re excited to have added him to our team.”

A lot of things went wrong on Sunday… Laurent Robinson wasn’t one of them. I look forward to seeing him continue to grow and take on a more substantive role on the team.
