Cowboys Working Out WR Robinson



    It's funny what you can learn from Twitter.

    If you follow former San Diego Chargers wide receiver Laurent Robinson, and you're a Dallas Cowboys fan, you saw something late Monday that caught your eye.

    @LaurentRobinson: "Going to the Dallas #Cowboys! Thank you guys for all your support"

    Sure sounds like Robinson, who pronounces his name "La-ron" was saying he's officially joined the Cowboys.

    According to ESPNDallas' Tim MacMahon, a "source" said Robinson is merely working out for the Cowboys at Valley Ranch today.

    But with that being said, it's probably just a formality as Robinson would bring some instant experience to a wide receivers corps that is severely lacking in that department.

    Robinson was released by San Diego, which is loaded at wide receiver, after putting up 120 yards receiving in the Chargers' preseason finale after racking up 344 receiving yards and two touchdowns last year with the St. Louis Rams. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons, previously, and has put up and even 1,000 yards in his four-year NFL career.

    Aside from starters Miles Austin and Dez Bryant, the Cowboys have little to no experience deeper down the depth chart with Kevin Ogletree, Jesse Holley and rookie Dwayne Harris. Ogletree is the only one of that trio to record an NFL reception.
