Saints News 8/4/13: WR Laurent Robinson To Visit Saints Monday

New, comments

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that Robinson will work out for the Saints on Monday. Robinson has already visited with the Jets, Dolphins, Lions and 49ers. His last stint was with the Jaguars last year, where he suffered a series of concussions that caused him to miss nine games. Could he simply be a potential camp body while Colston and Morgan recover from injuries or does he have a legitimate chance to make the final roster?
