The Boston Globe reports the Patriots wanted to sign free agent Laurent Robinson, but "didn’t feel comfortable enough about the concussions."
Robinson tried out for the Pats late last month. Robinson has visited seven teams this summer, but beat writer Ben Volin reports teams are "scared" of his concussion history. Robinson was allowed to suffer an unfathomable five concussions last season. The fact that he's yet to land a contract despite making seven visits is an ominous sign for his NFL future.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports free agent Laurent Robinson recently received full medical clearance for his concussions from an Orlando-based clinic.

Pelissero expects him to find a team "soon." The 28-year-old has worked out for seven teams since the end of last year. The Ravens and 49ers -- defending Super Bowl teams -- are among the most receiver-needy clubs in the league.

Despite losing both Arrelious Benn and Jeremy Maclin for the season to torn ACLs, GM Howie Roseman says the Eagles have no plans to sign a veteran receiver.

"You want your young players to grow and develop," Roseman said, "and that’s why you keep young players on your roster." Roseman said the same thing last week following the loss of Maclin. Laurent Robinson and Brandon Lloyd are the top two veteran free-agent receivers. CSN Philly does expect the Eagles to bring in "one or two" receivers this week, but they'll be younger guys.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson will work out for the Colts.

It will be Robinson's seventh tryout since late July. On one hand, it's encouraging Robinson keeps getting workouts. On the other, it's not a good sign that he's yet to find a team comfortable enough with his concussion history to sign him.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson will work out for the Saints on Monday.

Marques Colston, Nick Toon, and Joe Morgan are all nursing various minor injuries, so the Saints need bodies. Robinson, 28, has steadily started making the rounds on his free-agent tour the past couple of weeks, but this smells like the Saints are just bringing him in to update their emergency list.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson will work out for the 49ers on Thursday.

It would be an ideal landing spot for the 28-year-old veteran, but his health remains a major question mark. He just got beaten out for a roster spot in Miami by Julius Pruitt, suggesting the Dolphins weren't sold on his medicals. Robinson would have some WR4/5 appeal in San Francisco if he could stay on the field.

Free agent Laurent Robinson will work out for the Dolphins on Tuesday.

The news comes less than a half hour after the Miami Herald reported the Fins would look to the open market for receiver help after losing Armon Binns and Rishard Matthews to injury. Still only 28, Robinson is two years removed from posting a 54/858/11 line for the Cowboys, but was inexplicably allowed to suffer five concussions in 2012. To say he's a health risk is putting it mildly.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins are exploring the receiver market after losing Armon Binns and Rishard Matthews to injury.

Binns (ACL) is out for the season, while Matthews (undisclosed) will be sidelined "several weeks." Laurent Robinson and Brandon Lloyd are the top free agent wideouts available, but neither is a particularly appealing option. Robinson is coming off a concussion-marred 2012, while Lloyd is dealing with diminishing skills and questions about his attitude.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero "hears" the Texans could be the next team to host free agent WR Laurent Robinson.

Robinson visited the Lions, Jets, and Patriots this week. Detroit signed Chaz Schilens instead, while the Jets re-upped Braylon Edwards. In Houston, Robinson would vie for a job behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 05:13:00 PM

Free agent Laurent Robinson left his tryout with the Lions without a contract.

Robinson has worked out for the Jets, Patriots and Lions in the last week. All three are in need of veteran wideout depth, and all three passed. Robinson appeared in just seven games last year due to four concussions.
Thu, Jul 25, 2013 08:31:00 AM

Free agent Laurent Robinson left his tryout with the Patriots on Tuesday without a contract.

Per the Boston Globe's Ben Volin, the Patriots "will be back in touch" after his visit with the Lions Wednesday. Robinson also worked out for the Jets earlier this week but remains unsigned.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 06:20:00 PM

Free agent Laurent Robinson left his Monday Jets tryout without a contract and will visit the Patriots on Tuesday.

Perhaps this means the Jets will wind up signing Austin Collie, who was also at Monday's workout. Robinson, at least theoretically, is a classic "X" receiver -- the position vacated in New England's offense by Brandon Lloyd's release. Robinson would compete for playing time on the outside with Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce, Michael Jenkins, and UDFA super-sleeper Kenbrell Thompkins.

The Jets are working out free agent WR Laurent Robinson on Monday.

The Jets are giving both Robinson and Austin Collie a tryout prior to the start of training camp. Robinson was released by the Jaguars this offseason after being diagnosed with four 2012 concussions, but says that he's "symptom free" and will attempt to continue his career on a non-guaranteed contract. He also has visits lined up with the Patriots and Lions.
Mon, Jul 22, 2013 11:02:00 AM

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson (concussions) says he's symptom free, and wants to play in 2013.

The Jaguars cut Robinson loose just one year into his five-year, $32.5 million contract after he suffered a terrifying four concussions last season. "There's going to be doubts about me with the concussions," Robinson conceded. "But the only thing I can do is tell teams to bring me in, work me out and go from there. ... I know myself that I can still play. It's just if a team wants to take a chance on me." Robinson's agent says there are "some teams interested." Still only 28, Robinson should get another shot if he can find a doctor to clear him.

The Cowboys are open to a reunion with free agent WR Laurent Robinson.

"Obviously, he played lights out and we tried to sign him last year and his price got more than we could handle under our cap,’’ executive VP Stephen Jones said. "We’ve got to look at the big picture with Laurent. He had some (concussions) that we’re going to be doing our homework on and be going from there." The Cowboys have a few options for their No. 3 receiver, but none of them are proven. Returning to the team he broke out with in 2011 would be a best-case scenario for Robinson, but it remains unclear if he'll even be cleared to play for 2013.
