Laurent Robinson, Martellus Bennett making FA visits


IRVING, Texas – While the Cowboys are actively shopping in the free-agent market, so are two of their own free agents.

Tight end Martellus Bennett will visit the New York Giants on Tuesday night. Also, wide receiver Laurent Robinson is visiting with Jacksonville, according to sources.

The Cowboys would like to keep Robinson, who led the team with 11 touchdown catches last year, but the price tag might get too high, especially with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant on the roster.

The Arizona Cardinals have also expressed interest in Robinson among other teams.

The Giants’ need for a tight end arose after Travis Beckum and Jake Ballard suffered major knee injuries in Super Bowl XLVI. The Giants have enough familiarity with Bennett over the years and Bennett has made it clear he wants the chance to be a starter.

Bennett confirmed the visit to New York on Twitter: "Headed to NY tonight. excited!"

In 2008 the Giants signed defensive end Chris Canty away from the Cowboys with a lucrative offer.
