Broncos, Welker agree to 2-year deal

JACKSONVILLE, Florida -

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released receiver Laurent Robinson, who signed a five-year, $32.5 million free agent-contract last season before missing considerable time with concussions.
    
The team says Robinson passed a physical last month and was completely healthy.
    
But the receiver disagrees, telling The Associated Press "there's no way he could line up and play a game tomorrow."
    
Robinson's deal paid him $11.1 million in 2012 and included $14 million guaranteed. He was due a $2 million roster bonus later this week, prompting the team's decision.
    
The former Dallas Cowboys slot receiver missed nine games last season because of concussions - the first one happened when he landed on a small strip of concrete pavers near the practice field - and finished with 24 receptions for 252 yards.
