Chargers Sign WR Laurent Robinson

According to the Silver Fox, the Chargers have signed four-year WR Laurent Robinson.

Robinson spent his first two years with the Falcons, and the last two with the Rams. Last year, with the Rams' receiving corp falling to pieces, Robinson caught 34 balls for 344 yards and 2 TDs.

Laurent is a tall (6'2"), lanky (192 lbs.) receiver that will slip into the battle for the WR3 and WR4 spots on the Chargers roster. His signing, depending on the years and money in the contract, could spell the end for the Bolts' interest in bringing back Malcom Floyd.

The Rams initially traded for Robinson to be a starting WR, and he was leading the team in receptions in 2009 when he fractured his fibula and missed the remainder of the season. In 2010, he finished fifth on the team in receptions. Injuries could be a concern with him, but if he is able to stay healthy the Chargers may have found a very dangerous receiver to compete with the likes of Vincent Brown, Seyi Ajirotutu, Richard Goodman and Kelley Washington.

Update: The details have come out on Robinson's contract. It's for one year at the veteran minimum. On XTRA Sports 1360AM, Laurent said that he had worked with Larry Fitzgerald in the offseason and never felt better. This is a low-risk, medium-to-high-reward signing.
