Vikings Release Koren Robinson

Wide receiver Koren Robinson was removed from the roster.

The Vikings released wide receiver Koren Robinson Saturday night. The move was planned, according to a Vikings source, as a way to not have his salary guaranteed for the season.

The team will probably re-sign him this week if he clears waivers.

If he was on the opening-day roster as a vested veteran, his salary for the season would have been guaranteed and the signing would have been considered a high-risk pick due to his struggles with alcohol. However, without his salary guaranteed, it is a low-risk signing.

Robinson could be available for returning kickoffs next week if the Vikings are able to re-sign him, but his role as a wide receiver may not be fully realized until later in the season.
