Fantasy Impact:

This is massive news, though the Jaguars will apparently try to work out a long-term deal with him prior to March 12, which is when he's able to talk with other teams. The fact that the Jaguars aren't applying the tag is telling, though, as they have plenty of cap space. Robinson is going to be one of the hottest commodities in free agency, with the Chicago Bears being the most logical fit for him. Whatever happens, it's hard to see Robinson's fantasy value taking a hit through all of this. If anything, his value is likely to increase.
