The Panthers have signed veteran wide receiver Aldrick Robinson according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.com.
Dubbed “Lord Aldrick”, the 30-year-old Robinson is a 5’10/185 deep threat who has never become a star in the NFL but seems to produce everywhere he lands. Originally a sixth-round pick by the Washington Redskins out of SMU in 2011, Robinson spent the first three years of his pro career with the Redskins and has 14 career touchdowns on 86 grabs with five different teams.
He has an impressive 16.5 yards-per-catch average in his career and caught a career-high five touchdowns on 17 catches for 231 yards after being signed by the Minnesota Vikings last September.
In Carolina Robinson joins a wideout group that currently features D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, Chris Hogan, Rashad Ross, Jarius Wright, and Torrey Smith, among others.
We would not be surprised if he establishes instant rapport with QB Cam Newton and carves out a role for himself in the Panthers offense in 2019.
