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.

Your point remains but 3 of them had 22 completions for 323 yds last season.

I think you're including Posey in those #'s. ObsiWan excluded Posey in his question since he's on active PUP, and I excluded him in my response.

Laurent Robinson has shown big play ability. Adding him to the mix can't hurt.

Andre, DeAndre, Devier, Martin

I could easily see this becoming one of our stronger units ala 2010 rb's.The texans seem to have some pretty good scouts out there. Pretty soon you'll be seeing our scouts becoming assistants for other organizations . The downfall of having a great staff at hand.

That's still a long time coming. Houston still doesn't get respect out there. We're pretenders until proven otherwise.

Once we win that Championship though..... watch out.

I could see Martin being the 5th WR/KR?PR guy.

Robinson brings 4 things not currently on the Texans roster. Experience/elite size/speed combo, concussions. The ability to score TD's better than any other WR opposite AJ since AJ joined the team.

Robinson isn't a WR1 but he's a very good WR2.

I am just wondering how you are judging this. Since 2007:

Robinson - 2110 yds, 12.6 ypr, 15 TDs.
Walter - 3923 yds, 12.5 ypr, 24 TDs.

Robinson had 1 good season with 11 of his TD's coming in that season and then suffered multiple concussions.

Do not want.

Wouldnt have even wanted him before the concussions. He had one good year and turned it into a payday with the Jaguars. Having watched him play before then, he was rarely more than mediocre. We'll be a better franchise if we dont emulate the Jags.

He's been hurt (Various injuries) every yr besides his big yr with Dallas.

If healthy (Big if) Robinson is a big WR with speed to take the top off of a defense. The Texans have never had a guy like that opposite AJ. If healthy Robinson can open things up for AJ, Foster,OD.

Chances of Laurent Robinson getting a pay day from the Houston Texans = 0

Chances of Houston "emulating" the Jags = 0


If we sign Laurent someone in our FO would have to believe he can help the team more than Posey, Jean, Martin, Mahl (sp?), etc..... & he'd have to be league minimum cheap (we still don't have any money).

Soooo any further developments/reports/better rumors regarding this guy?

Personally, I think if we're still "shopping", it ought to be for an ILB not a WR.
