Zac Robinson Still Hoping To Play In NFL

Zac Robinson's four-year NFL career may have appeared to some to have ended last month when the Cincinnati Bengals waived the former Oklahoma State Cowboys quarterback. Robinson spent last season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list after being active as the third quarterback for the Bengals in the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

An elbow injury that eventually required surgery was the stumbling block with Robinson's career. He has had surgery and is actively in rehab with the idea that he will be back to playing football again.

"I am active in rehab with the elbow and I expect to be 100 percent by next March and will be looking for another opportunity (in the NFL)," Robinson said in a text the other day.

He added from his home in the Denver, Colo., area that he hopes to be in Stillwater this summer at some point to get some work in with the Oklahoma State quarterbacks. That would be great because Robinson is a good teacher and his skill set really matches up well with all three of the current Cowboys quarterbacks in J.W. Walsh, Mason Rudolph and Daxx Garman.

Following his record-setting career at Oklahoma State that saw him break a lot of passing and total offense records that previously belonged to current Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy, Robinson was drafted by the New England Patriots and went on to also play for the Seattle Seahawks and the Detroit Lions in his rookie season in the NFL.

Also, a lot of those records that Robinson broke or threatened were broken or threatened again by Brandon Weeden, now a quarterback with the Dallas Cowboys.

Robinson will be a guest on Sports Talk with Robert Allen and Friends at 11:05 am (CT) Wednesday, July 2. You can access the program on 105.1 FM, 1020 AM, and 1580 AM in north central Oklahoma or on the internet at or the Triple Play Sports Radio app for Android or iPhone devices.
