  Bengals | Cut Zac Robinson    Fri May 2, 03:06 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals cut QB Zac Robinson with a failed physical designation Friday, May 2.

Footballguys view: The Chatfield Charger has bounced around to four different teams during his four-year NFL career. Originally a seventh-round pick by the Patriots in 2010, Robinson could latch on with a team in need of a third-string quarterback. The Bengals now move forward with Josh Johnson and Jason Campbell as the two reserves behind Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Roster moves    Tue Dec 10, 06:27 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals elected not to activate QB Zac Robinson (elbow) from the Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning he'll miss the rest of the season. Also, they waived FB Chris Pressley Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a developmental quarterback and has little fantasy value even in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Bengals | Josh Johnson appears to be favorite for No. 2 QB job    Wed Jul 10, 02:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Josh X. Johnson appears to have an edge over QBs John Skelton and Zac Robinson for the No. 2 quarterback job entering training camp because he is the best runner among the quarterbacks, can throw the ball deep and knows the offensive system.

Footballguys view: Johnson is an athletic QB who can make plays with his legs. He's not afraid to challenge a defense with his arm but struggles with accuracy on the run. We don't think he'll have any problem beating out Skelton or Robinson for the QB2 job in Cincinnati.

  Bengals | Josh Johnson has advantage    Thu Jun 6, 08:27 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Josh X. Johnson has a slight advantage over QBs John Skelton and Zac Robinson in the backup quarterback battle because of his previous experience in the West Coast offense.

Footballguys view: Bengals OC Jay Gruden was with the Buccaneers when the team selected Johnson (San Diego) in the fifth-round of the 2008 NFL draft. He should have no trouble winning the backup job behind Andy Dalton this season.

  Bengals | Zac Robinson does not practice    Mon Jun 3, 02:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Zac Robinson (elbow) did not participate in organized team activities Monday, June 3, because of elbow soreness. There are indications that Robinson may not throw until training camp begins.

Footballguys view: Bad news for Robinson as he's trying to make the team as a backup QB. He will compete with John Skelton for the QB3 job behind Andy Dalton and Josh Johnson.

  Bengals | Six signed to futures contracts     Mon Jan 7, 04:56 PM

  Bengals | Sign seven to practice squad    Sat Sep 1, 02:20 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed FB Jourdan Brooks, LS Bryce Davis, RB Dan Herron, OG Otis Hudson, LB Emmanuel Lamur, CB Chris Lewis-Harris and QB Zac Robinson to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: We like Dan 'Boom' Herron's intent running style and determination between the tackles. He could develop into a nice player for the future and is one to watch in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Bengals | 18 players waived    Fri Aug 31, 09:29 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals waived FB Jourdan Brooks, TE Colin Cochart, LS Bryce Davis, FB James Develin, DE Dequin Evans, WR Vidal Hazelton, CB T.J. Heath, RB Dan Herron, OG Otis Hudson, LB Grant Hunter, DE Micah Johnson, LB Emmanuel Lamur, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, DT Vaughn Meatoga, LB Roddrick Muckelroy, OT Matthew O'Donnell, QB Zac Robinson and OG Reggie Stephens Friday, Aug. 31.

Footballguys view: The Bengals spent a draft pick on Herron, but Matt Waldman favorite Cedric Peerman hung on to a roster spot and beat Herron out to make the final 53. The former Ohio State back should end up on a practice squad somewhere.

  Bengals | Two will compete for No. 3 QB job    Sun Jul 15, 02:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QBs Zac Robinson and Tyler Hansen will compete for the No. 3 quarterback job during training camp. Robinson has the benefit of being in the system for the year but Hansen did make some good throws during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a smart leader who knows how to distribute the football. He's not the biggest QB but can be accurate on short and underneath routes. Hansen is an impressive athlete but has poor arm mechanics. His ability to keep plays alive could earn him a spot on the practice squad as a developmental prospect.

  Bengals | Make roster moves    Tue Sep 6, 04:11 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agent CB Rico Murray (Bengals) and QB Zac Robinson (Lions) to undisclosed deals Tuesday, Sept. 6, and released QB Dan LeFevour from the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a quality developmental QB who the Bengals saw as a better option over LeFevour. He has high football intelligence and could be a good fit for the Jay Gruden system. Robinson doesn't have a rocket arm, but is a rhythm passer who understands what a defense is trying to do.

  Lions | Drew Stanton wins third-string role    Sun Sep 4, 03:00 AM

Detroit Lions backup QB Drew Stanton won the team's No. 3 quarterback duties. He was battling with QB Zac Robinson, who was released Saturday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Stanton could be a backup for a lot of teams, but he chose to return to Detroit this offseason. He saw the field last year, so it's not a stretch to think he could be important for the team again this season.

  Lions | 13 waived    Sat Sep 3, 08:42 PM

The Detroit Lions waived WR Dominique Barnes, LB Caleb Campbell, RB Matt Clapp, TE Joe Jon Finley, DB Aaron Francisco, C Dan Gerberry, DB Anthony Madison, TE Gijon Robinson, QB Zac Robinson, DB Ricardo Silva, WR Tim Toone and DE Narada Williams. LB Cobrani Mixon (undisclosed) was waived/injured.

Footballguys view: Robinson might have made other teams as a third QB, but the Lions have Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton behind Matthew Stafford.

  Lions | Zac Robinson looks improved    Sat Jul 30, 04:23 PM

Detroit Lions QB Zac Robinson appears to be throwing the ball better and has a better grip on the offense during training camp. However, it is unlikely he will be able to beat out Drew Stanton for the No. 3 quarterback duties.

Footballguys view: Robinson is better than most people think. He's a tough player who isn't afraid to stand in the pocket to deliver the football. His arm is strong enough to make most throws and he has high football intelligence.

  Lions | Zac Robinson claimed    Wed Nov 10, 09:14 AM

The Detroit Lions have claimed free-agent QB Zac Robinson (Seahawks) off waivers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Zac Robinson has bounced around the league during his rookie season, but people in the scouting community like him as a developmental quarterback. He doesn't have the strongest arm, but can move around in the pocket and keep plays alive with his feet. The Lions need more QB depth while both Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill miss time due to injury.

  Seahawks | Matt Hasselbeck will attempt to practice Thursday    Wed Nov 3, 11:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck (concussion) will try to pass the league's mandated concussion testing and practice Thursday, Nov. 4, according to ESPN.com. Head coach Pete Carroll said QB Charlie Whitehurst will receive most of the repetitions in practice with QB Zac Robinson also seeing a few reps.

Footballguys view: Hasselbeck is likely to become another pelt on the Giants defense's wall if he does play, so maybe it's best for Whitehurst to get thrown into the fire on Sunday.

  Patriots | Rookie QB Robinson's fate in his own hands    Mon Jul 26, 11:43 AM

Mike Reiss, from ESPNBoston.com, notes the Patriots kept only two quarterbacks (Tom Brady, Brian Hoyer) on the roster last year but could carry three this season if rookie Zac Robinson shows enough promise in training camp and the preseason.

Footballguys view: Robinson struggled last year after WR Dez Bryant was suspended, but he started turning heads at the Senior Bowl earlier this year. He's athletic, will buy time with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield, and has a stronger arm than most give him credit for. If he impresses in camp then the Patriots could keep him around as a developmental project. There's also a chance he could get cut, and signed to the practice squad.

  Patriots | Kade Weston, Zac Robinson signed    Wed Jul 21, 03:16 PM

The New England Patriots have signed seventh-round draft choices DL Kade Weston and QB Zac Robinson, according to Karen Guregian, of the Boston Herald. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Robinson put up some good numbers at Oklahoma State when working with Dez Bryant. However, when Bryant was suspended most of last year Robinson struggled. Our very own Cecil Lammey and Matt Waldman watched Robinson up close during the week of practice at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL earlier this year and were surprised by his overall game. Robinson doesn't have a strong arm, and his lack of size was a concern for some NFL scouts. The Patriots will work to develop Robinson, and he could end up on their practice squad after training camp. Currently, second-year QB Brian Hoyer is the primary backup to Tom Brady.
