NFL’s wide receiver market just got interesting and risky
Teams in need of a receiving threat have seen their options increase this week.
But the players who became available do not come without risk: Sammy Watkins, Allen Robinson and Jarvis Landry (via trade) will all likely be switching teams this offseason. Dez Bryant might soon be a Cowboys cap casualty, as well.
Robinson’s case is more complicated. The last two seasons he was on the field, he was a legitimate No. 1 receiver (153 catches, 2,283 yards, 20 touchdowns) in an offense that was being led by Blake Bortles. Robinson suffered the injury in the season opener and the Jaguars thrived without him, advancing to the AFC Championship game. That was largely due to a dominant defense and the running of rookie Leonard Fournette, but it was enough for Bortles to get an extension himself.
Robinson recently said he will be ready for workouts before training camp.
I just try to keep everything as simple for me as possible, Robinson told ESPN.com. Letting my agent handle most of the work. Me and him talk a lot, especially this time of year you have to be on the same page as him. I’m still doing my rehab stuff, getting better each and every day, so that’s my main focus.
I was raised in a football family; my uncle played professionally, my cousin does even now. My earliest memories involve waking up early to join the crowds at the stadium with Grandma attempting to paint the Dallas Cowboys logo on my face, seven beers deep with a steady hand.
I was destined to be involved in the sports field in some way, so I decided on sports broadcasting. I started covering college sports and eventually the pros.
It’s what I knew, it’s what I loved, and it’s what I was around.
Solder said Hudson is doing awesome, really awesome. We’re so thankful. He has one more treatment left and tentatively they’re going to do scans, they’re going to do different things to see if they can remove his port. So maybe for now he’ll be done with chemo, and they do that all very conservatively because they know that things can change and it’s never over, but we’re all very encouraged and very excited with the way his treatments have gone.
