Found July 23, 2013 on
Free agent wide receiver Laurent Robinson visited with the New England Patriots Tuesday as the team conducted a workout.
The 28-year-old was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars following the 2012 season. Robinson appeared in just seven games and suffered multiple concussions. In those seven games, Robinson recorded 24 receptions on 43 targets while accumulating 252 yards and failed to score a touchdown.
Robinson worked out with the New York Jets on the Monday.
The reason why Robinson is still available is ultimately due to the concussions that he suffered in 2012—teams are certainly worrisome regarding Robinson’s health.
However, Robinson told USA Today last week that he’s fully recovered from the concussions and would like to play in 2013.
Robinson is your typical “X" wide receiver, a position that the Patriots are lacking experience at entering training camp. If Robinson were to sign a contract with New England, he would then be competing with rookies Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce as well as veteran wide receiver Michael Jenkins.
Throughout Robinson’s six-year career, he’s recorded 167 career receptions for 2,110 yards and 15 touchdowns.
