Wide receiver Laurent Robinson has been released by the Jacksonville Jaguars, per Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. Robinson has gone the way of Aaron Ross, another high-priced free agent brought in last offseason to put the Jaguars over the top. As it turns out, the Jags were much further away than just a couple of pieces.

 

 

Robinson’s four concussions were a major concern for the Jaguars during the season.  Ultimately, Robinson’s designation to injured reserve resulted in the emergence of second year receiver Cecil Shorts III and Robinson became more expendable. Word out of Jacksonville prior to the release was that Robinson had passed his physical and it seemed he would be back for 2013.  The decision to waive Robinson was a surprising move from GM Dave Caldwell.
