Rashard Robinson, former LSU CB, looking for new NFL home after release ahead of training camp
Former LSU cornerback Rashard Robinson is looking for a new NFL home after the Dallas Cowboys released him, according to a report from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Robinson, 25, was released just ahead of the team’s training camp getting underway, with HBO’s Hard Knocks in tow, in Oxnard, California.
Robinson is set to serve a two-game suspension to begin the 2021 season for violation of the league’s PED policy, a punishment that came out this offseason. Robinson joined the Cowboys in 2020 and was previously suspended during his time with the New York Jets — a four-game ban for a substance abuse violation — a penalty that preceded the Jets releasing him in 2019, only months before he was suspended a total of 10 games for an additional violation of the substance abuse policy, CBS Sports reported. As such, his current two-game ban will be his third suspension in less than three calendar years.
Robinson, a former fourth-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2016, was mostly a practice squad body for the Cowboys last season, but did register three starts because of the injury-ravaged roster. He didn’t have an interception or pass breakup during that time, and allowed an 81.3 percent catch rate when targeted, along with a combined 106 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
