Dolphins to work out Laurent Robinson

The Dolphins were very interested in Laurent Robinson last offseason until the Jacksonville Jaguars swooped in and signed the receiver coming off an 11-TD season to a $32.5 million deal. That didn't go well because Robinson suffered from concussion issues in Jacksonville and was eventually cut.

Well, with the Dolphins needing wide receiver help and Robinson still available it is apparently time to revisit the idea.

Robinson will be in South Florida and will work out for the team by tommorrow, according to The Herald's Barry Jackson who broke the story on twitter. Follow him!

It's likely the Dolphins will be looking at other WRs as well after losing Armon Binns to a catastrophic knee injury on Sunday. Binns reportedly blew out his ACL and MCL during practice.

Robinson has been making the rounds on workouts. He visited New England, Detroit and the Jets and didn't sign with any of them.

The concussion limited Robinson to seven games and 24 catches a season ago. But he had a monster season for Dallas in 2011 when he caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 TDs. That performance obviously made him a free agent prize.

Now he's hoping to land a job with a team that has already signed several free agent wide receiver prizes -- Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson -- this offseason.

Other names on the receiver free agent market include Austin Collie, Randy Moss, Chad Johnson, Early Doucet, perhaps Donald Driver and Steve Breaston.

Don't bank on Johnson or Moss being in the mix, however. They simply don't fit Joe Philbin's style, as we already saw with Johnson last year.

"We're always looking to improve from within or without," Philbin said today. "We're not afraid as an organization to improve the ballclub at any position."
