Formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, Demarcus Robinson is currently an unrestricted free agent and free to sign with any team. The Cleveland Browns seem to be the type of team this offseason that would have some interest in a player like Robinson. A lot of the Browns pick up’s on the free-agent market are of guys who are older, viable players coming in on the cheap, or younger guys who need an opportunity.
Robinson doesn’t seem to be a high priority in Kansas City as of right now, the 25-year-old wideout is exactly the type of talent that has become the norm for the team to sign. This isn’t a move that’s done because of production or name-value but merely possibility and upside. Could someone like Robinson blossom in Cleveland? He’s still young, he’s 6’1 and about 200lbs and has just shy of 1,000 yards receiving in his career. So maybe.
He’s not going to seek a huge deal, nor should he, and he has experience starting for a SuperBowl winning team. Having had starts in 12 of the teams 19 games this past year. He barely made a dent in the big game itself, however, but that might just give him the fire needed to come into Cleveland and produce.
He’s not a number one wideout, and he may not be a number two but With Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper on the field with him, he won’t be asked to be. He can simply be the third option and hopefully can improve with some more steady playing time.
He’s fast enough, with a 4.59 40-yard dash, but he’s not going to scorch defenses on fades or many deep routes. Hopefully, he can establish good route running and find the offense to be amendable to his skillset.
He’s a cost-effective but high potential signing.
