    Of course he will. He said that in Minnesota too. But good luck to him.

    This signing could be a major steal. He's a good player and a good guy, he's just got some personal problems. Brett Favre had a little addiction problem too. It happens to a lot of guys.

    I hope he really does straighten himself out.

    Very cool. Now if only the Packers would actually throw the ball in the 1st half, especially now that we have receivers.

    Pack should hire him a driver....seriously!
    He's a good guy who has a problem, but how much will you like him if he kills somebody on the road.

    It is a good pick up for you guys, football wise.

    haha...true...kind of pathetic that about 15% of our passes in the first half came from the punter

    The Packers already have a Driver! (Donald!) :wink:

    I wonder when Robinson will be able to play.

    They said on ESPN "a likely one-year suspension." So I'm sure that'll help a lot this year.

    He is on a week to week pay check basicly....If he is put in jail or suspended by the NFL, Packers are just out the $$ they spent on him before any of those 2 things happen..

    I was able to get the much guarded details of Koren Robinson's new contract with the Packers.
    Base salary: $275,000.00

    Incentive Bonus: up to $500,000.00

    250 free Green Bay Transit System Bus Passes. Free cab fare for 2 years.

    I read this somewhere.

    Other players have come to Green Bay (eith issues) and redeemed themselves. I for one will give him enough rope to prove he is sincere. If not he will hang himself with it.

    Good luck with him, he seems to have some success issues, keep him on a short leash, test him, rehab him, fill his contract with clauses. If he faulters send him to the Raiders, thats where I thought he would end up.

    I hope like hell this works out. Robinson, Driver, and Jennings could be a nice trio along with K-rob running back kicks.

    I could well be wrong but I thought that the minimum salary for a guy with his years in the league was around $800,000. $275,000 could be the minimum for rookies. Correct me.

    From what I'm reading he's already the #1 KR and understandably so, but I think he is on the third team depth chart at the moment at reciever.

    He's first team KR and he's behind Ruvell Martin on the WR depth chart.
