When the Patriots start this season, they may be without their top five receivers from last season so they are exploring as many options as they can.

New England will give wide receiver Laurent Robinson a look, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan. He's scheduled to visit Foxboro for a workout Tuesday.

Robinson, who is coming off an injury-shortened season with the Jaguars, has played six seasons for four teams. In 59 games, he has totaled 167 catches for 2,110 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Tom Brady lost some of his key targets from last season. Wes Welker signed with the Denver Broncos and Danny Woodhead signed with the San Diego Chargers. The Patriots released Brandon Lloyd, who is still a free agent.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent several surgeries since the end of last season, and the Patriots released Aaron Hernandez after he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

New England added Danny Amendola and Michael Jenkins, but still needs depth.

Robinson suffered four concussions in the 2012 season starting in training camp. He was released this March after signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract with $13.6 million in guaranteed money in the 2012 offseason.

Robinson filed an injury grievance against the Jaguars for $2.6 million. He was due a $2.6 million base salary, which would have been guaranteed if he had been on the team's roster on April 5, and it was only injury-guaranteed until then.
