A day after being one of several former Sun Devil players released during the NFL's final cutdown day, wide receiver Gerell Robinson may be on his way home.
The former Hamilton High School and Arizona State standout was not unemployed long after the Denver Broncos included him among there final cuts, as he has tweeted that he will be signing with the Arizona Cardinals.
The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Robinson signed with the Broncos after going undrafted in April. He joined former ASU teammates Brock Osweiler and Omar Bolden in Denver, and caught four passes for 53 yards in the four preseason games. However, he was not one of the five receivers kept by the team.
Robinson will likely be headed to the practice squad with Arizona, but given the team's situation at wide receiver, he may be a candidate for an active roster spot down the road.
After three lackluster years at ASU, Robinson blossomed into a legitimate No. 1 receiver, catching 77 passes for 1,397 yards and seven touchdowns. While lacking great speed, Robinson has sure hands, a terrific work ethic and his big body presents an inviting downfield target.
No official word has been given and we'll be sure to keep tabs on this situation and any others in the coming days as other former Sun Devils latch on to NFL rosters (Garth Gerhart was added to the Cleveland Browns practice squad earlier today).
Back home like I never left.. Blessed for another opprotunity to put on in front of arizona— Gerell Robinson (@G_Rob10) September 2, 2012
