Brian Robiskie (born December 3, 1987) is an American football wide receiver who is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ohio State.

Early years[edit]

Robiskie was born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area, where his father was a Cleveland Browns assistant coach.[1] He attended Chagrin Falls High School, where he set numerous school records as a wide receiver.[2]

College career[edit]

Robiskie played college football at Ohio State. He saw little playing time in his freshman and sophomore season at Ohio State, but caught the winning touchdown pass in Ohio State's annual rivalry game with Michigan in 2006, and was named a starter his junior season. His performance in the 2007 season helped the Buckeyes advance to the 2008 BCS National Championship Game. Robiskie's receptions and yards were down in the 2008 season with new freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor at the helm, but he was still a highly touted prospect coming into the 2009 NFL Draft.

Professional career[edit]

The Cleveland Browns selected Robiskie in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft, the 36th overall pick. On November 1, 2011, Robiskie was waived by the Browns in order to clear a roster slot to sign running back Thomas Clayton.[3]

Robiskie was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 2, 2011,[4] and was released on September 10, 2012.

Robiskie was signed by the Detroit Lions on October 24, 2012, and appeared in 6 games for them.[5] He was released by the Lions on April 8, 2013,[6] re-signed on April 15,[7][8] and cut again by the Lions on June 24.[9]

Robiskie was signed by the Atlanta Falcons on October 10, 2013, following a season ending injury to Julio Jones. He was released on November 26.

Robiskie signed with the Tennessee Titans on May 2, 2014.[10] He was subsequently released by the Tennessee Titans on August 29, 2014. [11]
