Ex-NC State WR Koren Robinson, one of the biggest NFL draft busts of all time, last played pro football in 2009.
Robinson, who has lived in North Carolina recently, reportedly owed that state $497,502 in 2010, which made him N.C.’s third-worst tax delinquent.
The ninth overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks, Robinson played with the Seahawks (2001-04; 2008), Minnesota Vikings (2005) and Green Bay Packers (2006-07). He made the Pro Bowl in 2005 but did not meet expectations for his career, in which he had just 16 TD catches.
Robinson played the 2009 season in the UFL with the New York Sentinels but couldn’t stick there, either – reportedly because he missed too many meetings. He previously was charged with DWI while with the Vikings in 2006.
