Default Rumor: Texans to meet with Laurent Robinson

(Rotoworld) USA Today's Tom Pelissero "hears" the Texans could be the next team to host free agent WR Laurent Robinson. Analysis: Robinson visited the Lions, Jets, and Patriots this week. Detroit signed Chaz Schilens instead, while the Jets re-upped Braylon Edwards. In Houston, Robinson would vie for a job behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.

I guess the FO wants to bring him in to push Keshawn Martin for the slot receiver job? Good proactive move if so.

Martin is going to need to take a big step forward. He sucked last season. I wouldn't be handing him any slot receiver duties.

At times last year, he looked pathetic out there trying to catch passes.

Don't get this - if there's any truth to it - we have 8 WRs on the T/C roster now. And that doesn't include Posey. Don't see what Robinson brings to the table that we don't already have in one of these youngsters.

Someone enlighten me, please.

Experience. Last year at WR was disgraceful past AJ, no one was consistently stepping up and catching the ball. I don't foresee a big contract for Robinson or know if he'd make the team after pre season, but if they did sign him it'd show the FO is looking to further improve a woeful WR corps from last year.

Actually, there's 10 on the roster at the moment, but if you add up all the NFL stats for the 9 not named Andre Johnson, you get 2 starts and 16 catches for 236 yards. I'm guessing they just want another WR in camp who's got some genuine NFL game-time experience. Also, he's only one year removed from catching 11 TD passes and having a pretty decent season for the Cowboys.

Looks like he is doing a tour of America...

Robinson has already worked out for the New York Jets, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints.
