Any contract he signs now won't be for much money. If he gets knocked out again then we're in exactly the same place we're in now.
I think people are minimizing how desperate our WR group is right now. We need to add the best experienced WR we can, and right now I really think that's Robinson.
(and NO, I do not think we should bring Moss back again after he mailed it in during the superbowl)
In fact, I will go a step further and say that I think the 9ers should sign both Laurent Robinson AND Early Doucet.
Now I know people are going to hate on this because they don't think we need two new WRs. To me, the fact that we're even discussing Moore, Lockette, Hall, or Jacobs as much as we are means that we need TWO more WRs. We just don't have any experienced players and I will take an average NFL level player over a long shot lotto ticket undrafted player.
Now the second thing people are going to hate on is Doucet. And yeah, I know he's not the greatest. But like Robinson, he took a while to develop, got stuck with terrible QB play, but DID have a solid 2011 season. Here are his 2011 stats:
Not terrible, despite the fact he had that crappy ARZ platoon of QBs throwing to him. I'd rather have him as my day 1 starter/late season bench warmer than Chad Hall or Marlon Moore.
