Well, apparently a five catch, 99 yard performance that included a beauty of a touchdown grab wasn’t enough to propel Gerell Robinson onto the 53 man roster for the Denver Broncos.
According to multiple reports, Robinson has been waived by the Broncos.
Robinson was a second year pro out of Arizona State who has a solid chemistry with Broncos 2012 second round pick and QB of the future Brock Osweiler. The two put together quite a season in 2011, and were both picked up by the Broncos as rookies.
Robinson was waived by Denver and spent his rookie season on the Arizona Cardinals‘ practice squad, and his work with Larry Fitzgerald in the offseason was evident.
Though Robinson didn’t make the Broncos’ final 53 man roster, they made a move on him quick and likely want him on the practice squad. Of course, Robinson first has to clear waivers and after his game last night, the Broncos are hoping the rest of the league was asleep.
Denver is extremely deep at the WR position, and while I think they could have kept 6 WRs plus Trindon Holliday as a return specialist, they knew they were going to have to make tough cuts. Here’s the first of what could be quite a few.
