Robinson Has A 'Guaranteed Opportunity'

Posted Nov 2, 2012

Following his four-reception, 52-yard performance in Pittsburgh, Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan guaranteed WR Aldrick Robinson more playing time.

A healthy and productive receiving corps has been essential to the early success of the Redskins offense, which currently ranks seventh in the NFL. 

After injuries to speedy receivers Pierre Garçon and Fred Davis, the Redskins have been forced to get creative with packages, utilizing more of the depth chart to stretch the field.

First year receiver Aldrick Robinson was an early favorite to step in for Garçon, following a strong preseason and season opener. 

However, his disappearing act in the following seven weeks (five receptions, 62 yards), left him glued to the bench.

“I’ve just got to take a better approach at it,” Robinson said at the time.  “I’ve got to be well-prepared and ready.”

Robinson's greatest skill is his 4.3 speed, earning the intrigue of his head coach, who called him "one of the fastest players in the NFL."

After spending most of his rookie season on the practice squad, Robinson solidified his spot on the 2012 active roster with an impressive training camp.  His 104 yards in the final 20 minutes against the Chicago Bears was the team's only 100-yard receiving performance this preseason.

Robinson knows that consistency is the key to his coaches' trust, and has worked hard prove his reliability.  

“I’ve been practicing hard and looking good at practice,” he said.  “[The coaches] are seeing that and want to see it in a game now.”

Head coach Mike Shanahan told reporters that Robinson has put himself in a position to earn more playing time if he can seize the opportunity now.

“Aldrick has gotten back in the mix. We expect him to play a high level,” Shanahan said.  “He is going to get some more playing time--I can guarantee you that."

After a four-reception, 52-yard performance against the Steelers, Shanahan saw the execution he anticipated all season.

“I was pleased [with him] against Pittsburgh," he said.  “There were a couple of routes that he ran that I was really impressed with.”

Robinson came to the NFL from the unorthodox Run-n-Shoot offense at Southern Methodist University.  He admits that it took some time to learn the Redskins’ playbook, but his comfort level has made him a more polished receiver.

“I’m just putting a lot more focus in [everything I do], trying to work on the details and little things,” Robinson said.  “Things that will help me do better than I did last time when I had this chance.”

Going up against a Panthers’ pass defense ranked 15th in the NFL, Robinson plans to show his coaches and teammates that he can be a consistent performer.

"This is definitely another chance for me," he said.  "I had the opportunity after the Saints game to establish myself--now I have that chance again."
