Jaguars Release WR Robinson

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have released receiver Laurent Robinson, who signed a five-year, $32.5 million free agent-contract last season before missing considerable time with concussions.

The team says Robinson passed a physical last month and was completely healthy.

But the receiver disagrees, telling The Associated Press "there's no way he could line up and play a game tomorrow."

Robinson's deal paid him $11.1 million in 2012 and included $14 million guaranteed. He was due a $2 million roster bonus later this week, prompting the team's decision.

The former Dallas Cowboys slot receiver missed nine games last season because of concussions the first one happened when he landed on a small strip of concrete pavers near the practice field and finished with 24 receptions for 252 yards.
