Denard Robinson generating interest from Lions at WR

Denard Robinson says he’ll be a receiver, or punt returner, or the guy who fills the Gatorade coolers. Whatever it takes to stick in the NFL.

It appears receiver could do the trick.

The former Wolverines star said Monday after his first workout for the Senior Bowl that he already has spoken with “several” teams, including the Detroit Lions. He didn’t disclose any details, other than clubs want to see him at receiver.

“They said they wanna see me catch,” Robinson told after the practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. “That’s what they’re all telling me, and that’s what I want to show people. I know I can catch. I’m a football player. Just got to show it.”

Unfortunately for Robinson, he didn’t do much of that Monday.
