Jaguars released TE Gijon Robinson.

Robinson is really just a blocker and H-back at 6'1/255. The ex-Colt was always a longshot for the final roster as Greg Jones is one of the league's premier blocking backs.

Jaguars signed TE/FB Gijon Robinson, formerly of the Colts.

The 27-year-old Robinson is an H-back type who spent time in Lions camp last year. He's a camp body in Jacksonville, and probably will not make the roster.

Lions signed TE Gijon Robinson, formerly of the Colts.

Robinson is an H-back type that will try to fit in as a blocker behind Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler.

In addition to RB Mike Hart, the Colts have also relinquished rights to restricted free agent tight ends Gijon Robinson and Tom Santi.

Both players have fallen well behind Jacob Tamme and Brody Eldridge in the pecking order. Robinson managed just three catches in 11 games last season while Santi failed to suit up in 2010.

Colts re-signed FB/TE Gijon Robinson.

Robinson, an H-back, has been with the Colts the last three seasons but was active for only one game before being released last month. He won't have an integral role on offense outside of some lead blocking.

Colts waived TE Gijon Robinson.

Robinson has been active for just one game this year as Jacob Tamme and Brody Eldridge have moved past him on the depth chart.

Colts TE Gijon Robinson (concussion) put in a full practice Friday and should be ready for Sunday's game against the Texans despite a questionable tag.

Robinson's absence last week led to Tom Santi's big day. Neither backup tight end is a fantasy option.

Colts TE Gijon Robinson (concussion) did not travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Robinson suffered the concussion against the Patriots last week. Robinson has just six catches on the season.
Sun, Nov 22, 2009 01:51:00 AM

Gijon Robinson was held to one catch for three yards in a Wild Card loss.

More importantly, he gave up a huge sack late in the fourth quarter to kill a drive. Robinson finished with 166 yards on 19 catches in a surprisingly productive rookie year, but will have to battle Tom Santi and Jacob Tamme for playing time next year.
Sun, Jan 4, 2009 12:09:00 AM

Colts TE Gijon Robinson caught four passes for 51 yards against the Jags in Week 16.

Peyton Manning's new checkdown tight end now has an impressive 11 receptions for 128 yards over the past three weeks. He may take on a larger role next week if Dallas Clark is held out.
Thu, Dec 18, 2008 11:54:00 PM

Colts TE Gijon Robinson caught six passes for 69 yards in Week 14.

Robinson had only seven catches through Week 13 but slipped into space Sunday as defenses keyed on Dallas Clark. But it was Clark who found the end zone. Robinson has been used primarily in run support this season and should resume that role next week.
Sun, Dec 7, 2008 05:38:00 PM

Colts TE Gijon Robinson (ankle) is expected to return to game action this Monday.

Rookie Tom Santi has been filling in as the second tight end while Robinson and Jacob Tamme have been out.

Gijon Robinson and rookie Jacob Tamme will share snaps as the Colts' primary tight end if Dallas Clark (knee) misses time.

Robinson is second on the depth chart and would likely start, with the more athletic Tamme coming in on passing downs. Neither is a fantasy option. Anthony Gonzalez would see the true bump in value as a slot receiver.
Wed, Sep 10, 2008 06:59:00 PM

Colts TE Gijon Robinson caught four passes for 49 yards in Sunday night's Hall of Fame Game loss.

The second-year man out of Missouri Western State (?) has no problem going over the middle and taking hits. Viewed primarily as a blocker, Robinson currently may have a slight edge on Jacob Tamme to be Dallas Clark's backup.
