JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have released receiver Laurent Robinson, who signed a five-year, $32.5 million free agent-contract last season before missing considerable time with concussions.

The team says Robinson passed a physical last month and was completely healthy.

But the receiver disagrees, telling The Associated Press "there's no way he could line up and play a game tomorrow."

Robinson's deal paid him $11.1 million in 2012 and included $14 million guaranteed. He was due a $2 million roster bonus later this week, prompting the team's decision.

The former Dallas Cowboys slot receiver missed nine games last season because of concussions -- the first one happened when he landed on a small strip of concrete pavers near the practice field -- and finished with 24 receptions for 252 yards.
