JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Laurent Robinson is trying to stay positive.
It's not easy since he has just one reception for 7 yards in three preseason games and seems to be quarterback Blaine Gabbert's second or third option. The Jacksonville Jaguars signed Robinson to a five-year contract worth $32.5 million in March. The deal will pay him $11.1 million this season.
So everyone expects more from the former Dallas Cowboys receiver.
Robinson says he's "trying to just keep a positive attitude" and adds that "I still got to get better."
Coach Mike Mularkey, who spent a year with Robinson in Atlanta, blamed the lack of production on coverage.
Nonetheless, the Jaguars aren't likely to see much from Robinson in Thursday's preseason finale against Atlanta. Mularkey says starters will play, at most, a quarter.
