In the offseason the Jacksonville Jaguars signed free agent wide receiver Laurent Robinson to a five-year, $32.5 million deal. Robinson was coming off his best season as a pro with 54 receptions, 858 yards, and 11 touchdowns with the Dallas Cowboys. It was also Robinson's only noteworthy season of his NFL career, as he's struggled with injuries and bounced around a few teams.

ESPN's (Insider) K.C. Joyner thinks that Robinson can be a "matchup buster" wide receiver, however.

Very good matchup busters (those who tallied a YPA between 8-10 yards against red/yellow-rated cornerbacks)

Robinson took full advantage of the opportunity placed before him in 2011, and his showing in this statistic proves that he did so despite concerted defensive efforts to stop him. If Blaine Gabbert can't appreciably improve his numbers by throwing to Robinson and Justin Blackmon, the Jaguars will know they need a new quarterback.
