'Boys Appear Unlikely To Keep Robinson

While the Cowboys have entertained several free agents at Valley Ranch already this week, one of their top priorities has been visiting elsewhere.

Wide receiver Laurent Robinson was first hosted by Jacksonville, and the financial terms of a potential deal with the Jaguars are in place, according to a Florida Times-Union report. The only thing left is for Robinson to decide if he wants to play in Jacksonville. He has also been reported to have received interest from the 49ers, Dolphins, Cardinals, Jets and Chargers.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys have been in constant contact with Robinson and are hoping they will have the opportunity to match offers from other clubs.

Given the nature of the team's salary cap situation, Garrett acknowledged that money was a factor, and the team would only be able to go so far to bring Robinson back.

The coach said he hoped Robinson's success as a Cowboy in 2011 would be a major factor in his decision. Robinson had 11 touchdowns with the team, and only four scores in his previous four seasons.

UPDATE: Robinson is believed to have a received an offer in the range of $6 million per year from another club. The Cowboys are not expected to match that figure.
