Robinson might not have to miss his quarterbacking duties too much. Although Blaine Gabbert is the featured starter, the team has been working out the former college quarterback under center. There has even been talk that Robinson will see 10-15 snaps a game—though no specific mention of the Wildcat formation among the coaching staff. Whether a quarterback, rusher, receiver, or returner, Robinson will have to adapt to his new role as a “jack of all trades.”
While Jacksonville may have a pair of draft steals in the making, the team’s newest offensive wrinkle will only work if Blaine Gabbert is able to develop into the player they had hoped when the selected him 10th overall in 2011. With Luke Joeckel projecting to play at a high level, owner Shad Khan should be able to determine if Gabbert is a franchise player, or just another draft bust. Other options include backup-QB Chad Henne, who has filled in admirably in brief stints with the team, and Aaron Rodgers’ kid brother, Jordan.
If Gabbert, Henne, or Robinson does not flourish as the team’s signal caller, rumor has it that another former Florida quarterback is looking for a job.
