Report: Laurent Robinson cleared by concussion clinic

Former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laurent Robinson insisted in mid-July that he finally was symptom-free from the four concussions he sustained in a four-month span last season.

After working out for seven NFL teams in the past three weeks, Robinson is expected to soon find a home. He recently gained medical clearance from an Orlando-basic clinic for concussions, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today.

The evolution of the NFL:
Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

Robinson revealed to NFL Network's Andrea Kremer in February that he was still sensitive to light and couldn't be around his crying infant daughter because it led to throbbing headaches.

When the NFL Players Association sent the receiver to see a neurologist in April, he acknowledged that he "definitely wasn't ready to be cleared."

Robinson has turned the corner since then, working out and running routes without issue. The dilemma for interested NFL teams is whether or not Robinson will have to pull the cord on his football career if he sustains another concussion.

Teams in need of a veteran receiver include the contending Baltimore Ravens, San Franciso 49ers and New England Patriots. Robinson already has worked out for the latter two. Now that he's cleared for contact, interest could be rekindled.
