Jaguars WR Allen Robinson dives toward free agency as one of the top potential talents to hit the open market, but with questions, too. At Just 24 year old, Robinson is still young with plenty of room to go.

And, just because he missed almost all of the 2017 season, doesn’t mean a thing to him either.

“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 told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday.

Robinson says his rehab has progressed well and he will be ready, “It’s not like one of those things where it happened at the end of the year. I’ll be cleared well before the season starts & well before training camp.”

The Jags sure know what he brings to the table. Robinson hauled in 153 passes for 2,283 yards and 20 touchdowns during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Robinson had 16 of those touchdowns in a monster 2015 season.

However, his 2017 never got going after tearing his ACL in the opening win at Houston. Robinson missed the entire magical turnaround in North Florida.

The Jags need to take a look at locking up Robinson soon, before placing the franchise tag on him.
At around $16 million, they may not want to pay the price for a one year deal.

At 24 Robinson has already been a proven force against opposing defensive backs, and the Jags had a great season, even without him,  going all the way to the conference title game.

By adding Robinson back in 2018, it improves the offense in multiple ways.

First, the passing game can open up more with a valid number 1 receiver on the outside.
Second, the run game can be opened up more thus improving the play action pass game that  QB Blake Bortles needs, and worked so well in the playoffs.

If the Jags also add a tight end to the roster, that gives defenses more to game plan for and helps Robinson get even more open looks downfield.

Jacksonville, has a lot of momentum going in their favor right now, and need to keep riding it by bringing back a veteran, who if fully healthy, can help them, too.

After spending so much on defense the last few seasons, its time the Jags showed the offense some love and not allocate the resources elsewhere.
