Atlanta Falcons sign Brian Robiskie


The Atlanta Falcons have arguably the most injured wide receiver corps in the NFL, and they need help from anyone that can catch a pass in the worst way.

One player who they hope can step-in for Julio Jones, who was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list today, is Brian Robiskie:



The 25-year-old former Ohio State Buckeyes great has 43 career catches for 485 yards and four touchdowns. He was originally drafted in the second-round of the of the 2009 NFL Draft, the 36th overall pick by the Cleveland Browns. He, along with seemingly every player on the Browns at the time, was a disappointment and eventually cut.

Robiskie was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 2, 2011, and was released on September 10, 2012, just a few weeks after winning one of the final roster spots with the team. He was signed by the Detroit Lions, only to be cut in the following offseason.

Between having Blaine Gabbert in Jacksonville, and Brady Quinn, Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace in Cleveland throwing to him, we’ve probably not seen the true potential of Robiskie.
