GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -The NFL reinstated suspended Green Bay Packers wide receiver Koren Robinson on Wednesday, his agent said.
``He received notification today,'' Alvin Keels said in a telephone interview. ``He was excited to be given another chance. He's just ready to get back and help the Packers win the Super Bowl.''
Keels said Robinson has been working out in Arizona. He said he expects his client to fly to Green Bay on Wednesday night.
``He's in the best shape of his life,'' Keels said.
Messages left with the Packers were not immediately returned.
Wednesday was the first day Robinson was eligible to return from his one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He had petitioned for reinstatement to commissioner Roger Goodell.
e Packers in September 2006.
But he played in only four games before he was suspended.
In February, Robinson was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading down to a charge of fleeing police. Robinson also was sentenced to three months in jail for violating probation on a separate drunken-driving case in Kirkland, Wash., last year.
