Laurent Robinson released by Jaguars, according to report

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

Laurent Robinson signed a big contract in free agency in 2012.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released wide receiver Laurent Robinson, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. The move is a bit of a shocker, considering Robinson played just one season with the team, but O'Halloran reports Robinson passed his physical so it doesn't appear to be totally injury related.

The Jaguars signed Robinson to a five-year, $32.5 million deal in free agency last season after his season with the Dallas Cowboys, but four concussions suffered throughout the season derailed his career it would seem. Robinson played in just seven games, catching 24 passes for 252 yards before heading to injured reserve.

In training camp Robinson looked like he might be a big play threat for the team, but after his concussions and the emergence of Cecil Shorts III and rookie Justin Blackmon, it appears he was expendable. By releasing Robinson the Jaguars will carry $9 million in dead money and still count roughly $4.5 million against the cap, according to my calculations. If the Jaguars wind up designating Robinson a June 1st cut, it will save the team $3.3 million in cap space according to Spotrac.
