This one hurts: Dallas Cowboys WR Laurent Robinson signs with Jacksonville Jaguars

Dal_u_robinson01jr_200Amid all of this celebration over signing cornerback Brandon Carr there is the issue of the Dallas Cowboys keeping the ones they needed to keep, chief amongst them wide receiver Laurent Robinson.

That's done. The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed the Cowboys' biggest surprise of 2011.

Robinson wrote on his Twitter account: “Its official everyone. Taking my talents to Jacksonville #Jags. I wanna say thank you to the Cowboys Organization and especially FANS 4 all your support last year. But it’s the beginning of a new chapter. And thank you to my agents @NFL_Bridge National Sports Agency and the Jaguars for making this deal possible.”

Robinson will now become the top target for quarterback Blaine Gabbert to miss. Robinson's deal is for five years and $32.5 million; $14 million is guaranteed.

This is a rather large loss for a receiving corps that should have been much better than it was last season. Robinson was signed off the street last year and became one of Tony Romo's most reliable receivers. Robinson's 54 receptions were the third-most on the team. His 11 touchdowns led the team.

This now leaves Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and ... uhhh ... cough-cough ... uhhh .... anyone?
