When Koren Robinson has a chance to shine, one man screws it up for him: himself. Robinson was arrested for a DWI Tuesday night, a move that could prove to be costly to the Vikings. Robinson was driving faster than 100 mph in a zone with a limit of 55 mph at 10:45 p.m. at night, when police tried to stop him. He kept on driving until he reached Mankato, where the Vikings hold their training camp. Then, Robinson was arrested by the police. His blood-alcohol level was at 0.11 percent.

Robinson posted bail of $50,000, and his next court appearance will be on October 17th. Vikings head coach Brad Childress was upset at the situation for everyone involved.

"I couldn't be more disappointed for him, for the football team, and for the community to have that happen," said Childress.

Robinson was suspended for four games back in 2004 after violating the league's substance abuse policy. At the time, he was with the Seattle Seahawks. He tried to make a return last year with the Vikings, and was successful at the end of the year when he started receiving more playing time. He finished the season with 22 catches for 347 yards and a touchdown. He also made the Pro Bowl as a kick returner. After the Vikings did not re-sign Nate Burleson this offseason, Robinson was projected to be the team's No. 1 receiver. If the league decides to count this as Robinson's third offense towards their program, he will be suspended for one year.

Former head coach of Robinson, Mike Holmgren of the Seahawks, was upset by the news.

"When he was with us, I rooted for him. I tried to help him. I felt I kind of failed the kid somehow," Holmgren said. "He's got to get a grip on this before something bad happens."

PFC Fantasy News: If you have Robinson, try to trade him for a low-level player you may be interested in. However, his value is pretty much shot at the moment, and in all likelihood, you'll have to cut him. However, this does boost the value of Travis Taylor, who will probably take over as the No. 1 wide receiver. Marcus Robinson and second-year man Troy Williamson will also move up a spot on the depth chart, but Taylor will probably have the best value. On the same note, Brad Johnson won't be throwing a lot of touchdowns to one player.
