Former Chicago Bears wide receiver Marcus Robinson will participate in the Green Bay Packers' mini-camp practice Thursday as part of his tryout with the team.
Robinson was cut by the Bears April 16 in a salary cap-conscious decision. Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said that he would be willing to re-sign Robinson at a lower salary, but the former South Carolina speedster is now looking elsewhere.
Robinson has suffered through injuries for most of his six NFL seasons. But in 1999, the only year he played all 16 games, Robinson made 84 receptions for 1,400 yards and nine touchdowns.
Coming off a knee injury that sidelined him for most of 2001, Robinson had hoped to return to his previous form in 2002, but saw limited action coming off the bench behind Marty Booker, Dez White and David Terrell.
He played in 15 games, making 21 catches for 244 yards and three touchdowns.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound receiver was originally selected by the Bears in the fourth round of the 1997 draft.
