Robinson secured three of six targets for 70 yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the unfavorable result for the team, Robinson thrived through the air once again and enjoyed additional opportunity once Julio Jones went down with a first-quarter ankle injury. Robinson has outperformed presumed the pair receivers immediately above him on the depth chart, Mohamed Sanu and Justin Hardy, over the last two weeks, amassing 188 yards on six receptions. The SMU product has certainly shown plenty of downfield chops over his three-year career, having averaged over 20 yards per reception over the 2012-13 seasons in Washington. Robinson was out of the NFL last season after a summer 2015 release by the Ravens, but looks highly likely to secure a roster spot on a Falcons receiving corps that is not overly deep beyond All-Pro Julio Jones.

Robinson impressed in last Thursday's preseason debut, hauling in three receptions for 118 yards, Michael Cunningham of the Atlantic Journal Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson gained many fans after his performance on Thursday night, including Falcons' Pro Bowl wideout Julio Jones. "He had a great game for us. But there is more to come from Al," Jones mentioned earlier this week. Robinson is currently battling for the No. 4 spot on the Falcons' depth chart, behind Justin Hardy, Mohamed Sanu, and of course Jones.

Robinson has signed a contract with the Falcons, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson participated in some of the offseason program after being signed by the Ravens in early 2015, but was released during the trimming of the 53-man roster before the regular season began. The speedy receiver hasn't seen legitimate action since the 2013 regular season, where he caught 18 passes on 46 targets for 365 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games for an average of 20.3 yards per reception. Part of Robinson's problem as an NFL receiver is that he has been seen solely as a deep threat, and in that regard he is not entering a good situation in Atlanta. Matt Ryan doesn't have a particularly strong deep-ball arm, and one third of his throws in 2015 were targeted towards superstar Julio Jones, leaving a negligible share of work for the rest of the Falcons' receiving corps. Robinson will really need to fight if he wants to receive a spot on the 53-man roster, and even if he does he will most likely stick to special teams, leaving him with marginal upside for fantasy production in 2016.

Robinson has been diagnosed with a strained knee and is expected to miss the rest of the Ravens' offseason program, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Robinson sustained the injury Tuesday, after which tests were performed on his MCL. Luckily, the team deemed the ailment a mere strain, but his pursuit of a fringe WR gig will likely be delayed until training camp.

Robinson sustained a knee injury during Tuesday's OTA and was carted off the practice field, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Robinson is slated for further tests on his MCL, but the initial diagnosis appears to be a sprained knee. Until the extent of the injury is clear, there's no telling how much time he may miss. However, at the very least, his status for the rest of the offseason program is questionable at best.

The Ravens have signed Robinson to a Reserve/Future contract.

Robinson caught just one pass for six yards in five games for Washington this past season, but the 2011 sixth-rounder could make a run for a spot on the Ravens' 53-man roster in 2015 as a deep threat in the team's wideout corps.

Washington cut Robinson on Saturday, the Washington Post reports.

Robinson was cut to make room for Gabe Miller. The one-dimensional deep threat might get a look from a team that could use one, but he's unlikely to get on the fantasy radar in the foreseeable future.

Robinson lead the team with three receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown in the first preseason game. He failed to keep his feet inbound on a second touchdown catch.

Robinson is competing for the fourth wide receiver spot. He always had the speed to beat people down field but never showed consistency in making plays.

Redskins re-signed WR Aldrick Robinson to a one-year, $570K contract.

Robinson was an exclusive rights free agent, so this is just a procedural signing. Operating as a situational deep threat since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2011 draft, Robinson has totaled 29 catches for 602 yards (20.8 YPC) with five touchdowns over the last two seasons. He'll try to earn a similar role behind Pierre Garcon and Leonard Hankerson in Jay Gruden's rotational scheme.
