Robinson etched his name in coach Andy Reid's mind during the team's OTAs and could challenge for playing time in 2017, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports. "He's the young [receiver] that's come up here a little bit and had a pretty good offseason," Reid said. "We'll see how he does once we get going in the preseason. He can go after it. He can run, and he can do the short stuff, too. His strength coming in was that he was good after the catch wherever you get it to him. I'm not saying he's that guy right now, but he's had a good offseason."

Robinson was surpassed by another rookie -- Tyreek Hill -- on the depth chart during his inaugural NFL campaign, but the Chiefs' 2016 fourth-round selection has made some marked improvement coming into his sophomore season. The release of veteran receiver Jeremy Maclin opened some reps at the position and Robinson appears in the mix for some additional work. Hill will receive the first shot as the team's "Z" receiver and Chris Conley should be locked in across from him, meaning Robinson and the others will battle it out for the third spot on the wideout depth chart.
