IRVING, Texas --The Cowboys on Tuesday were expected to work out fifth-year veteran wide receiver Laurent Robinson, cut by the Chargers over the weekend.
A third-round pick of Atlanta in 2007, Robinson played his first four seasons with the Falcons and Rams, catching 89 passes for 1,000 yards and four touchdowns. He started 11 of 14 games for the Rams last year, with 34 catches for 344 yards and 2 TDs.
Robinson went to training camp with Norv Turner's Chargers, so he might have some general familarity with Jason Garrett's terminology. The Cowboys could decide to sign him this week or next, depending on their evaluation.
Five receivers are currently on the roster, including backups Kevin Ogletree, Dwayne Harris and Jesse Holley. The Cowboys also kept a fourth tight end, Martin Rucker, with Martellus Bennett recovering from a high ankle sprain.
