  • Elsen's Mailbag: Robinson's Development

    http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs...d-3a8bf832f49e

    "Today’s edition of The Mailbag on Giants.com:

    Last year after the draft, TE Adrien Robinson was called “the JPP of tight ends.” How has his development gone? Are his physical talents translating to improved performance? What do you see him contributing to the Giants this coming season?
    -Eli

    No, this question is not from Eli Manning. Frankly, it’s a little difficult to gauge Robinson’s progress. Because he was completing his academic requirements at Cincinnati last spring he did not participate in most of the offseason camps and programs. That put Robinson behind the other tight ends and rookies when he reported to training camp. He was inactive for all but two regular-season games and his playing time was limited to special teams. But Robinson said the work he received in practice every day set him up to be a productive player in the future. Jerry Reese said after the season the Giants “still have high hopes” for Robinson. I do think he can contribute to the Giants in 2013, and he might have to if Martellus Bennett, who is a free agent, isn’t re-signed.

    I prefer to refer to him as "Air" drien Robinson. I'm awaiting for Nike to craft a shoe with a silhouette of his wingspan on it.

    Yes I'm optimistic on his future.

      It would sure be nice if he became a contributor this year.

        Has Adrien Robinson improved?

          The guy can move. Would be really interesting to see him out there with Nicks, Randle, Cruz, and Wilson.

            I would love to see him get a chance to show what he can do.

              hahaha this says absoluetly nothing! "we still have high hopes".. doesn't sound at all very promising.

                    Pope can develop just about any TE into a weapon in NY. Ballard, Boss; I'm sure Robinson will out perform them both.

                        How many damned TE's do we need? We need pass rushers, LBers and DB's...not more ****ing TE's!
                        Find the money to sign Bennett and our TE situation is set. We finally found the first TE since Bavaro and Howard Cross that is the complete package of receiver and blocker ...why are we ****ing around with re-signing bennett?

                          Bavaria and Cross were nice but I think u forgot about Shockley. He was a beast in his day as well.

                            But sadly, Shockey didn't have a Giants' mentality. I hope this kid picks up the offense fast this preseason. He got to see a lot of it last year. No excuses this year. I do wish the article had a more positive tone though. Another of the wait and see what we have guys. They need to really show up or we will be scrambling.

                              Presumably because funds aren't in abundance. More room needs to be made first.

                              I doubt Bennett is a top priority.
