Well, if they're looking at low cost options, shopping for one position doesn't preclude shopping for another at the same time.

No, I'm thinking any looks he gets will be courtesy -- he's filed a grievance against the Jags over his 2013 salary.

Robinson had 4 concussions in 2012 alone. Ryan Swope had 4 in college and his 5th at OTAs ended his career. I don't see wasting time with the guy. I certainly wouldn't guarantee a contract for injury.

I'd add TE to that mix. We're thin & inexperienced behind OD and GG, and often use 2-TE sets.

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).
I think the point is/should be what have those names you listed done to stand out? Not much. Low cost flyer on Robinson isn't a bad option. I doubt his contract would include anything guaranteed.

We have never had a truly competitive pair of wide receivers. I'm for exploring every option this preseason to make sure that we get best possible.

With that said, I think that the combination on AJ, Hopkins, Martin and Jean is potentially pretty solid. The question is whether or not Schaub can effectively take advantage of this talent in the first place.

After all the times Schaub hit Martin square in the hands last year and had him drop the ball, I don't think the problem is Schaub. I think it's going to take a while before Schaub's going to trust Martin.

If Martin can turn it around and if Hopkins is what we hope he is... Schaub could perform exactly as he performed last season and shatter 5000 yards.

Just be sure to temper those expectations off those reports. I remember hearing those amazing reports last year in camp as well and then we got...well...no need to return to that horror show. Hopefully the kid has picked it up and is ready but I'm going to wait and see him against competition. Almost seemed like the stage was a bit too bright for him. The talent is there but the mental part of the game was lacking.

You could be right...Although I can't see them bringing in a guy for no reason at all...

Maybe they brought him in as one of their 'take a look' guys in case of injuries.

Good point. What is the best #1/#2 combination that the Texans have ever had?

Could it have been AJ and Walter?

Yep. Walter had two pretty good seasons back with the team in 2007 and 2008.

Throw in that in 2008 (when Walter had 60 catches for 899 yards) OD added 70 catches for 862 yards, and that is probably the best single year for receivers in the Texans short history. That year A.J. had his second best year in yards (behind 2012), his best year in catches, and his second best year in TD's. Slaton also had his one good season carrying the ball going for 1,282 yards and 4.8 YPC.

The flipside of all this is it was a year Schaub missed 5 starts due to injury, and the Texans went .500 and finished third in the division.

That's incredible. Well, it sure likes we are getting ready to see strongest set of WRs in team history. Should be fun to watch.

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.
