Through two preseason games, Giants TE Adrien Robinson has one catch for nine yards and two total targets. He was listed last in the team's first "unofficial" tight end depth chart released a few weeks ago and did not appear in the first half of Sunday's preseason game against the Steelers. Most of those reps went to Larry Donnell.
"We got guys that are hurt and we still got three preseason games left," he said. "So whenever I go out there I'm just going to try and make a play."
Robinson said he wasn't upset when he saw the depth chart and understood it for what it was: A motivational technique by the coaching staff to bring him along this preseason. After drafting him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft as a project pick, the team had hoped this would be his breakout season.
The good news for Robinson is no one is really standing out at the position. Beat writers say Donnell has been impressive in camp but it hasn't translated to the field. Eli Manning has always loved to target his TEs, especially in the red zone.
