Robiskie attends receivers camp

By Marla Ridenour Published: July 17, 2009

Browns rookie Brian Robiskie is participating in a course for wide receivers at the new football stadium at the University of Minnesota, according to a story by Jim Trotter on

The course is the brainchild of Minnesota native Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals. Last week's instructor was Hall of Fame-bound Jerry Rice, with Cris Carter taking over this week.

According to Trotter, other receivers who have participated include Denver's Brandon Marshall, Buffalo's Lee Evans, Green Bay's Greg Jennings, Tampa Bay's Michael Clayton and Minnesota's Sidney Rice. Also attending have been cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Malcolm Jenkins, tight ends Matt Spaeth and Dominique Byrd and linebacker James Laurinaitis.

Carter, Robiskie, Jenkins and Laurinaitis are Ohio State products and Evans grew up in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

"The way Cris teaches us to run a route, I never heard it put that way,'' Evans told Trotter. ''What he was teaching wasn't new. It's just the way he said it that you could relate to.''

Besides working on routes, the sessions include drills to improve speed, agility, strength and technique.
