Robinson remains unsigned as an unrestricted free agent, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Robinson is actually one of the better wide receivers left in a thin market, coming off a 2018 campaign with 17 catches for 231 yards and five touchdowns on 35 targets in 14 games for the Vikings. He's typically struggled when tasked with a large workload, but his career stat line -- 16.5 yards per catch, 14 TDs among 86 receptions -- suggests he can give an offense a boost as a big-play weapon from the No. 4 receiver role. Granted, the 30-year-old doesn't offer much value on special teams, and his career catch rate (47.8 percent) reflects the all-or-nothing nature of his contributions on offense. Potential fits include Houston, Green Bay, Baltimore, Kansas City and Minnesota.
Robinson failed to catch any of his four targets during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bears.
Held without a catch for the second straight week, Robinson finishes up the season with 17 receptions for 231 yards and five touchdowns. The 30-year-old's ridiculous 17:5 reception-to-touchdown ratio is indicative of his success on designed plays, but Robinson failed to make much of an impact outside of such situations. Set to become a free agent this offseason, it's conceivable that the Vikings could elect to re-sign Robinson as a situational wideout for 2019.
Robinson was unable to snag either of his targets during Sunday's 27-9 win over the Lions.
Sunday represented Robinson's second catchless game in three weeks after just two such performances in his first 10 outings of the season. It's not easy to see things getting much better for Robinson. New offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski has pledged to be more run-heavy with the Vikings' offense and, through two games, Minnesota is throwing it 42 percent less than they had under John DeFilippo. To top it off, Minnesota draws a Chicago defense in Week 17 that has frustrated opposing passing attacks all season, though Robinson did reel in a touchdown grab against them in Week 11.
Robinson recorded two catches on two targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.
Robinson was effective during his 15 offensive snaps, as his 44 receiving yards ended up being a season high for the veteran. This came despite quarterback Kirk Cousins completing just 14 passes in Sunday's rout. Robinson has just 17 catches on the year, though five of them have gone for touchdowns.
Robinson did not have a reception and was targeted just once in Monday's loss at Seattle.
Minnesota struggled on offense most of the game which limited targets for most of the receiving corps and especially the secondary options. After looking like he may take over the third receiver role, he played less than Laquon Treadwell (30 snaps on offense for Treadwell compared to 13 for Robinson). Robinson could get a larger role if Minnesota's new offensive coordinator decides to reduce Treadwell's playing time after frequent drops this season, although the offense has few targets for receivers outside of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.
