Allen Robinson says ACL injury 'not really an issue' for upcoming free agency

The 24-year-old wide receiver missed the entire season with the knee injury, finishing with just the one catch for 17 yards, but he doesn't think it will affect his free agency.

"Every team across the league knows what I've done in this league and what I'm capable of, so that's not really an issue," Robinson said on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Robinson hauled in 80 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns during the 2015 year, but regressed with quarterback Blake Bortles in 2016, racking up just 883 receiving yards and six touchdowns.

The Saints and Cowboys could be two teams to watch in the Robinson hunt this offseason. New Orleans lacks wide receiver depth behind star Michael Thomas. Placing Robinson opposite Thomas would give Ted Ginn Jr. the opportunity to utilize the slot, thus allowing the Saints a variety of receiving options.

Dallas is unsettled with Dez Bryant, so it could pursue Robinson this offseason to add depth, and possibly replace Bryant as a No. 1 option.

The Jaguars could also try to resign the former Penn State star. Robinson has already stated he's confident he will be medically cleared for football activities before training camp.
