Robinson joining Jaguars on five-year, $32.5M deal

Laurent Robinson is leaving Dallas for Jacksonville.

The wide receiver has agreed to a five-year deal worth $32.5 million with the Jaguars, according to a league source. The deal averages $6.5 million per season and includes incentives based on Pro Bowl appearances and performance that total $600,000 per season.

The deal will pay Robinson $11 million by March of next year and $14.2 million guaranteed in 2012 and 2013.

“I wanna say thank you to the Cowboys Organization and especially FANS 4 all your support last year. But it’s the beginning of a new chapter,” Robinson posted on Twitter.

Robinson was willing to give the Cowboys the right to match any deal and appreciated the opportunity they gave him last season after claiming him off waivers. But Dallas has a tight salary-cap situation, and Wednesday’s signing of CB Brandon Carr made it clear that Robinson would be moving on to a new team.
