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.

Free agent Laurent Robinson left his Monday Jets tryout without a contract and will visit the Patriots on Tuesday.
Perhaps this means the Jets will wind up signing Austin Collie, who was also at Monday's workout. Robinson, at least theoretically, is a classic "X" receiver -- the position vacated in New England's offense by Brandon Lloyd's release. Robinson would compete for playing time with Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce, Michael Jenkins, and UDFA super-sleeper Kenbrell Thompkins.

The Jets are working out free agent WR Laurant Robinson on Monday.
The Jets are giving both Robinson and Austin Collie a tryout prior to the start of training camp. Robinson was released by the Jaguars this offseason after being diagnosed with four 2012 concussions, but says that he's "symptom free" and will attempt to continue his career on a non-guaranteed contract.

Free agent WR Laurent Robinson (concussions) says he's symptom free, and wants to play in 2013.
The Jaguars cut Robinson loose just one year into his five-year, $32.5 million contract after he suffered a terrifying four concussions last season. "There's going to be doubts about me with the concussions," Robinson conceded. "But the only thing I can do is tell teams to bring me in, work me out and go from there. ... I know myself that I can still play. It's just if a team wants to take a chance on me." Robinson's agent says there are "some teams interested." Still only 28, Robinson should get another shot if he can find a doctor to clear him.

The Cowboys are open to a reunion with free agent WR Laurent Robinson.
"Obviously, he played lights out and we tried to sign him last year and his price got more than we could handle under our cap,'' executive VP Stephen Jones said. "We've got to look at the big picture with Laurent. He had some (concussions) that we're going to be doing our homework on and be going from there." The Cowboys have a few options for their No. 3 receiver, but none of them are proven. Returning to the team he broke out with in 2011 would be a best-case scenario for Robinson, but it remains unclear if he'll even be cleared to play for 2013.

Jaguars released WR Laurent Robinson.
Signed to a five-year, $32.5 million deal a year ago, Robinson's career is now in jeopardy thanks to four 2012 concussions. Although the Jags say he passed his exit physical, that doesn't mean he's been cleared to play again. As recently as a month ago, Robinson was still experiencing headaches and other concussion-related symptoms. He added that he felt light-headed during a workout Tuedsay. Robinson wants to play again, but we fear this is headed down the Jahvid Best path.
