The Jacksonville Jaguars were awarded wide receiver Brian Robiskie off waivers from the Cleveland Browns today after the Browns waived Robieski on Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Robiskie, who played high school football in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, starred colliegately at Ohio State and was drafted 36th overall in 2009 by the Browns, moves on from Ohio for the first time in his football career.
The Browns placed wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker on injured reserve with a knee injury in order to make room for Robiskie.
Although Robiskie came to the Browns with high expectations, he never lived up to his college success:
He registered 24 career receiving touchdowns and became only the fourth player in school history to make 20 or more touchdown catches. He was a two-time Academic All-America selection and as a senior was a finalist for the Draddy trophy, given to football’s top scholar athlete. In his final season at Ohio State he scored eight touchdown while recording 42 receptions for 535 yards.
