Best of luck to him.... 63 ft won't cut it though :(

Yea, good luck to him. I just hope that this won't take any time out of his football training.

Robison really came on at the end of last season, I think he has starting potential on this team....

The shot put should not be too much of a detriment to a lineman. I threw shot put in high school a bit, it requires footwork and hip explosion. Some of the same leverage aspects come into play between the two.

I think he is one of the those players best suited to come in fresh off the bench. I would rather look elsewhere for a full-time DE. He and Edwards are a decent tandem coming off the bench.

I like Robison a hell of a lot more than I like Ray Edwards. I still can't believe the time he said he was going to break the sack record.

I agree, but Robison plays at such a high pace you have to wonder if that can hold up over 60-70 plays a game.

I doubt he can, but Ray Edwards is just a waste of an athlete. I would not mind looking at end in the next draft at all.

I agree, if Greg Hardy or Everson Griffin are available when we pick in the 1st, I'd be very happy with them, of course depending on where we pick.
