Aldrick Robinson WR WAS 5 Months

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.

With a big chance against a woeful secondary, Robinson came up short. The speedy deep threat saw just three targets, one of which saw him begging for a flag on the Redskins' final drive of the game. Robinson has some talent, but this coaching staff has never featured the No. 2 wideout and he hasn't made them start.

Aldrick Robinson caught two passes for 60 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Philadelphia.

Robinson saw extended snaps at the Z receiver spot following Leonard Hankerson's knee injury. He responded by making a nice adjustment and fingertip catch on a 41-yard bomb to get the Skins on the board in the fourth quarter. We've seen Robinson make big plays like this before, but consistency has always been an issue. Even if Hankerson's injury proves serious, Robinson will be a desperation add only.

Coach Mike Shanahan said the Redskins need to get Aldrick Robinson more snaps.

"We've got a lot of belief in Aldrick, and he does have some big-play capabilities," Shanahan said. "We need to get him in the ball game a little bit more." That's easier said than done. Robinson is Pierre Garcon's direct backup at X receiver. Garcon isn't going to be taken out of the game much. Robinson caught a 45-yard touchdown last week but remains a 12-18 snaps per game player.
