The Boston Globe reports the Patriots wanted to sign free agent Laurent Robinson, but "didn't feel comfortable enough about the concussions."
Robinson tried out for the Pats late last month. Robinson has visited seven teams this summer, but beat writer Ben Volin repots teams are "scared" of his concussion history. Robinson was allowed to suffer an unfathomable five concussions last season. The fact that he's yet to land a contract despite making seven visits is an ominous sign for his NFL future.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports free agent Laurent Robinson recently received full medical clearance for his concussions from an Orlando-based clinic.
Pelissero expects Robinson to find a team "soon." The 28-year-old has worked out for seven teams since the end of last year. The Ravens and 49ers -- defending Super Bowl champs -- are among the most receiver-needy clubs in the league.

Despite losing both Arrelious Benn and Jeremy Maclin for the season to torn ACLs, GM Howie Roseman says the Eagles have no plans to sign a veteran receiver.
"You want your young players to grow and develop," Roseman said, "and that's why you keep young players on your roster." Roseman said the same thing last week following the loss of Maclin. Laurent Robinson and Brandon Lloyd are the top two veteran free-agent receivers. CSN Philly does expect the Eagles to bring in "one or two" receivers this week, but they'll be younger guys.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson will work out for the Colts.
It will be Robinson's seventh tryout since late July. On one hand, it's encouraging Robinson keeps getting workouts. On the other, it's not a good sign that he's yet to find a team comfortable enough with his concussion history to sign him.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson will work out for the Saints on Monday.
Marques Colston, Nick Toon, and Joe Morgan are all nursing various minor injuries, so the Saints need bodies. Robinson, 28, has steadily started making the rounds on his free-agent tour the past couple of weeks, but this smells like the Saints are just bringing him in to update their emergency list.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson will work out for the 49ers on Thursday.
It would be an ideal landing spot for the 28-year-old veteran, but his health remains a major question mark. He just got beaten out for a roster spot in Miami by Julius Pruitt, suggesting the Dolphins weren't sold on his medicals. Robinson would have some WR4/5 appeal in San Francisco if he could stay on the field.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins are exploring the receiver market after losing Armon Binns and Rishard Matthews to injury.
Binns (ACL) is out for the season, while Matthews (undisclosed) will be sidelined "several weeks." Laurent Robinson and Brandon Lloyd are the top free agent wideouts available, but neither is a particularly appealing option. Robinson is coming off a concussion-marred 2012, while Lloyd is dealing with diminishing skills and questions about his attitude.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero "hears" the Texans could be the next team to host free agent WR Laurent Robinson.
Robinson visited the Lions, Jets, and Patriots during the past week. Detroit signed Chaz Schilens instead, while the Jets re-upped Braylon Edwards. In Houston, Robinson would vie for a job behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.

Free agent Laurent Robinson left his tryout with the Lions without a contract.
Robinson has worked out for Jets, Patriots and Lions in the last week. All three are in need of veteran wideout depth, and all three passed. Robinson appeared in just seven games last year due to four concussions.
