JACKSONVILLE – Part of the future of the wide receiver position in Jacksonville was secured Tuesday afternoon.
“It was real exciting,” Robinson said immediately after signing. “It took a little bit of time, but we finally have that done and out of the way. It’s just a breath of fresh air to get that out of the way.”
Robinson was the second wide receiver selected by the team in the second round after the Jaguars selected
With the signing complete, Robinson can concentrate on the weeks ahead and getting back on the field for training camp in late July.
“I’ve been doing some running and stuff, so it’s getting a lot better,” Robinson said. “I should be ready for training camp.”
Details of the contract were not released by the team. All rookies except for first-round selections sign four-year contracts.
Robinson (6-feet-3, 210 pounds), a second-round selection from Penn State, is a potential starter at wide receiver, along with second-round draft pick Marqise Lee and fourth-year veteran wide receiver
“That’s been a lot of fun getting around these guys, just learning from each other and trying to move forward,” Robinson said. “As a group, we have a lot of young guys on the team and I think that’s what makes our culture a good one.
“Coach Gus (Bradley) is always preaching for us young guys to get better, and continue to get better and push each other, and that’s what makes this a great program.”
Robinson became the eighth member of the Jaguars’ 2014 draft class to sign, joining first-round quarterback
Only second-round wide receiver Marqise Lee (Southern California) remains unsigned.
