[NFL]WR Robinson Signs With Vikes!


 Share

Recommended Posts

The Minnesota Vikings agreed to a four-year contract with free-agent wide receiver Marcus Robinson, whose career experienced a brief renaissance in Baltimore. "It gives us an opportunity to stretch the field more with a veteran receiver who has done it before in this league at a high level," Vikings coach Mike Tice said. Robinson's deal reportedly is worth $9.4 million with a $2 million signing bonus. His agent, Ken Sarnoff, didn't return a call Monday evening.Robinson, 29, visited Vikings headquarters on Saturday, but left without a deal. Monday's agreement, however, gave Minnesota a complement to Randy Moss that the team has been searching for since Cris Carter's retirement after the 2001 season.

Derrick Alexander didn't work out in 2002, and neither has D'Wayne Bates, who could be released because the team is high on young prospect Nate Burleson. Kelly Campbell, Keenan Howry and Kenny Clark also remain in the mix.

"We probably have one of the most competitive wide receiver corps in the league right now," Tice said. "That's a pretty dang good group."Robinson, drafted by Chicago in the fourth round out of South Carolina in 1997, caught 84 passes for a club-record 1,400 yards and nine touchdowns in 1999. His production declined after that, mostly due to injuries. After Chicago let him go, Robinson signed with the Ravens last season and finished strong. He caught 22 passes for 375 yards and six touchdowns over the final five regular-season games for playoff-bound Baltimore.

Tice said that Robinson was at the top of the team's list of available wide receivers, excluding Terrell Owens.

you could put TO, Galloway, Keyshawn, Irvin, or any other receiver at their prime in that offensive and it doesn't mean jack w/ knucklehead Culpepper controlling the ball. Just does not see the field well at all nor does he understand the meaning of throw the ball away.

that was 2 years ago, last season he was doing just that... throwing the ball away when he saw no one open or getting presure... that was one of the things he worked on last offseason.

yep i was thinking now that the vikes have picked up another good WR, my thoughts was like we got a WR tandum, also a very speedy RB tandum with Bennett and Smith... also Kleinsasser catching some passes, and blocking and opening holes in the running game...and of course Culpepper.
