When Denard Robinson was added to the Jacksonville Jaguars’ roster during training camp, the team decided to do something unique: they listed the former Michigan quarterback’s position as “offensive weapon” or “OW” for short. It was the sort of position designation that is used for high school recruits headed to college who can play multiple spots. It was creative. And it made Robinson sound awesome.
Through three games, however, Robinson has hardly been a weapon. He has five carries for -1 yards and lost a fumble. Now the NFL is stripping him of the “offensive weapon” designation.
This week the NFL told the Jags that they could only list Robinson as having one specific position. The team changed Robinson’s position to wide receiver.
How boring. I liked Robinson a lot more when he was an offensive weapon.
