With just a few weeks remaining until the Giants report for training camp, Big Blue View continues its breakdown of the 90-man roster the team will take to East Rutherford. Today, let's take a look at tight end Adrien Robinson.
2013 Season In Review
The 2013 season ended before it ever really began for Adrien Robinson. The third-year tight end injured his foot in the preseason, an injury that kept him sidelined him until November. When he finally got back on the field in Week 16, he sprained his knee on the opening kickoff and never saw the field after that.
2014 Season Outlook
This really could be it for Adrien Robinson. Since being dubbed the 'JPP of tight ends' following his selection in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by general manager Jerry Reese, the high praise has essentially been his only accomplishment. This year, Robinson has admitted he knows his time is winding down if he can't show the team he belongs and has done just about everything to make a run at the Giants' wide open competition at tight end. He's lost 15 pounds, has buried his nose in offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's playbook and is a regular in the film room.
"It's just a huge opportunity. They laid the opportunity right in front of me. I just have to go take it and make the most of it," Robinson said during OTAs. "I'm doing extra stuff, watching extra film because I do feel that pressure and I know this is my third year, so, like you said, it's going to be now or never."
If the light isn't on now, it may never be.
