The Dallas Cowboys faithful were furious that they let Laurent Robinson walk away. And Robinson signed a 5 year $32.5 million dollar deal last year to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Well guess what Cowboys fans, he’s back on the market.
However he could be seeing his career come to a sad and early ending. In the 2012 season he suffered 4 concussions, a scary amount for one season. That’s one in ever 4 games.
The Jaguars say that Robinson passed his exit physical but that doesn’t necessarily mean he is cleared to continue playing.
Last month Robinson was still experiencing headaches and other concussion related symptoms. At a work out last Tuesday, Robinson felt light headed but he wants to keep playing.
For his health and safety, playing might not be the best option. It’s very similar to the situation Jahvid Best, running back for the Detroit Lions, finds himself in.
#Jaguars have waived WR Laurent Robinson. Passed his physical so no injury settlement.

That injury record though might prevent him from getting any kind of sizable payday that would make extending his career and risking his health worth it. It’ll be interesting to see what Robinson decides to do.
