Ravens sign wide receiver Robinson
Owings Mills, MD (Sports Network) - The Baltimore Ravens and wide receiver
Marcus Robinson agreed in principle to a one-year contract on Thursday.
Robinson spent the past five seasons with the Chicago Bears. He played in 51
games with 28 starts and 20 touchdowns in the Windy City.
He had a solid season in 1999, when he caught a career-high 84 passes and
collected nine TDs for 1,400 yards. He ranks 16th in Chicago history with 187
catches and 19th with 2,695 receiving yards.
"Marcus will provide more veteran experience to our receiving corps," said
General Manager Ozzie Newsome. "He will be one year removed from his knee
surgery. Our experiences with players coming off surgery and the second year
they seem to be able to get back to the level of performance they were playing
at before the surgery. If that is the case with Marcus, this will be a really
nice addition for us."
The South Carolina product suffered a knee injury in the fifth game of the
2001 season. In 2002, Robinson played in all 16 games but had just 244 yards
and three scores on 21 receptions.
Baltimore signed former Arizona Cardinals starting wide receiver Frank Sanders
earlier in the offseason.
