Laurent Robinson is presumably one of the more interesting unrestricted free agent receivers available in this crop of free agents, but the 26-year-old wants to stay with the Dallas Cowboys.
Robinson had a breakout year with Dallas, who signed with the team after being let go by the San Diego Chargers following training camp. He developed an almost immediate rapport with Tony Romo, and finished the year with 54 catches, 854 yards and 11 touchdowns--numbers so good that many have wondered if Dallas can afford to bring him back as a no. 3 receiver behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.
“This is where I want to be,” Robinson said in an appearance Friday on ESPN’s “Ben and Skin” show, via ESPN Dallas. “It doesn’t matter if I’m the No. 1, 2 or 3. I feel like I have a good fit here.”
Robinson went onto insist that money would play less of a factor in negotiations than one might think, in his ultimate decision, and that the Cowboys have expressed an interest in bringing him back. Which, given the numbers and the way he fit into to the system, comes as a surprise to no one.
“Money doesn’t drive me to play this game,” Robinson said. “I play because I like to have fun. I think I have a good fit here with the Cowboys.”
