I do not know this person, is this good news or bad news for us? maybe this is the piece of news that the jenkins defenders have to hear in order to pull their head out of the sand. if i was jenkins and heard this , it would make me bust my ass to get back on the field but who the f**k knows how she will take it? yes i meant to say she
This is the guy I wanted from the get go. I hope we sign him.

I'm not going to pretend that he's a top 10 WR or anything. But the guy has speed, size, and gets open in the end zone. He's got some concussion history. But it was just a year or two ago that he had a monster season with Dallas.

We need some experienced WRs in the mix. And when I say "experienced," I don't mean guys have that been on more than one team's practice squad. I mean guys that have started NFL games, and scored NFL touch downs.

Right now it sounds like Chad Hall could be the starter in the first preseason game. To me, that should be an unacceptable WR situation to a front office.

He is injured genius. Didn't practice today.

i really do appreciate the job hall has been doing and he deserves credit for, unlike jenkins, seizing the opportunity but yes, i am just not excited to hear he could be our opening day wide out. now i still say kyle comes back and starts but still......
f**k YES! I hope he signs. Immediately better than Jenkins, Lockette, and Hall (When Healthy).

hey, genius, in case you have been asleep,, he has made no impact the previous week before he got injured so susweet is very appropriate to make such a observation in my opinion

Injuries to Crabs, Kyle, Mario, AJ, Lockette might have something to do with it...

if he was good and injured would they be looking at other wideouts ?

Why hasn't this guy been able to stick with a team?? Hes a pretty decent receiver, he lit it up in Dallas a couple of years ago and hes not that old 28.
I like this guy.
I know posts that start off with "I had him on my fantasy team" sound lame, but seriously.... I had Robinson on my fantasy team in 2011 and he was money. Here are his 2011 stats:

54 targets
81 receptions
858 yards
15.9 average
11 TDs

2012 he went to Jax (WR graveyard), got hit in the head a few times and didn't do much. But if there's a chance he can still play at that 2011 level we need to sign him. That 2011 season is better than every WR on the 9ers not named Boldin has ever had.

I called this today. After reading about Jenkins being horrid and injured, along with the rest of the WR corps depletion, I said to my co-worker this AM, "Watch out for the Niners to sign a WR ASAP".

I like Robinson, lots of potential, but he never stays healthy. There's a reason he's still available...but beggars can't be choosers.
