The Jacksonville Jaguars gave Cam Robinson a long-term deal last year because he brought stability at the left tackle position. On top of that, he had established himself as a leader of the offensive line, so keeping him around made sense. However, many things have changed since he put his John Hancock on the contract.
Robinson had a fine 2022 season. He wasn't great but he wasn't bad either and that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. Some players can regress a bit after having a career year, which seemed the be the case with Robinson. The issue was that it was revealed before the draft that he was going to get suspended for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.
With Robinson slated to miss the first four games of the 2023 season, Walker Little is in at left tackle. Although he'll miss the early portion of the year, he wasn't prohibited from practicing in training camp and suiting up for the preseason.
This may have been a great opportunity for Robinson to prove that he's still the player the Jags thought he was and that he should get his job back once he's eligible to return. But that hasn't been the case. The Alabama product has been underwhelming, especially against the Detroit Lions in Week 2 of the preseason.
This wouldn't be an issue if Robinson were a rookie or a journeyman but that's not the case. He's a franchise left tackle who shouldn't be struggling the way he did in Week 2. The good news is even the best players can have a bad day. Thus, it's reasonable to believe he will bounce back against the Dolphins and finish strong. After all, he's a vested veteran.
With this in mind, here are other Jaguars players that most shine in the preseason finale.
