Laurent Robinson caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns (the team lead) in 2011, and in doing so, he may have earned himself a big payday--at least big compared to the one-year deal he had with Dallas last season, which paid him just under $700,000.
Robinson, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, has said he’d like to remain with the Cowboys, and we’d imagine the feeling is mutual. That said, Robinson’s agent said recently that he expects his client to attract plenty of interest from around the league--which, after last season, is a pretty good bet.
"I would hope so," Harold Lewis said Tuesday, per ESPN Dallas. "He's got the age, height, speed and people can see what he can do."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week that the team was happy with their current receivers, but considering Miles Austin’s health issues and Dez Bryant’s general inconsistency, we’d imagine Jones would like to see Robinson return to Dallas as much as anyone.
"We think the receiver position is a strength for us," Jones said. "We've got a couple of young guys that we're proud of, too. I'm really appreciative of what [Robinson] brought to us this year. He had a real outstanding year."
