Redskins Release Aldrick Robinson
According to multiple sources the Washington Redskins have released receiver Aldrick Robinson.
The move is really only surprising in the fact that Robinson made it on a team with us much depth as the Redskins have at receiver for as long as he did.
The knock on Robinson for years has been he’s a “one-trick pony” in the fact all he has been useful at doing is deep ball routes. Robinson has never fully developed his route running or ability to catch the ball across the middle. In his defense, he was also mired behind several better options at receiver with Washington this season. Robinson’s last time on the field came seven weeks ago, after which he was passed on the depth chart by Santana Moss. He only had one catch this season for six yards.
In four years Robinson had 30 catches for 608 yards and five touchdowns.
Robinson was released to create room on the 53-man roster for linebacker Gabe Miller, who was promoted from the Redskins practice squad early Saturday morning.
Below is the play that most Redskins fans will forever remember Robinson for.
