Can Koren Make Good in Seattle?

Yesterday afternoon, speculation quickened about Koren Robinson's unexpected return as two more Seattle WRs (Logan Payne and Seneca Wallace) succumbed to injuries on Sunday.

By the evening, the much-maligned Robinson signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks (also trading for Keary Colbert). Never short on talent, Robinson was selected by Seattle with the 9th overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft. In his second season, he caught 78 passes equaling 1240 yards and 5 touchdowns. However, Robinson's maturity never matched his ability to make plays on the field, and has numerous brushes with the law.

Though Robinson has seemingly turned the corner in his personal life, can he compete at a high level? We will find out quickly as Robinson will have a great opportunity to put up numbers against the St. Louis Rams (prior to the Seahawks' Week 4 bye), who surrender a league-worst 327.5 ypg in the air.
