CB Patrick Robinson to sign with Saints

CB Patrick Robinson to sign with Saints

It was announced on Wednesday afternoon that the New Orleans Saints are set to sign Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Patrick Robinson to a four-year deal with an undisclosed amount, for now.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reported Robinson's deal with New Orleans is worth $20 million, half of which is guaranteed. He was perhaps the steal of free agency a year ago. After an up-and-down stint in New Orleans, he bounced around to San Diego in 2015, spent one year with the Colts in 2016, and last season with the Eagles. He played a pivotal role on the Eagles' pass defense, manning slot corner for the Super Bowl champions.

The Eagles attempted to re-sign Robinson, but ultimately didn't have the cap space for what he sought. Robinson's biggest play of the year came in the NFC Championship game, where he got a 50-yard pick-six that ignited the Eagles' rout over the Minnesota Vikings. The guy who was sitting on the chopping block during training camp in 2017, ended up being one of the most valuable players in the Eagles defense.

Robinson's arrival provides the Saints depth and a veteran presence among a young cornerback group, which consists of Marshon Lattimore, Ken Crawley, P.J. Williams, Arthur Maulet and Justin Hardee from the 2017 roster.

Robinson, 30, was initially a first-round pick by the Saints in 2010 and played his first five seasons in the National Football League in New Orleans.

Former Saint cornerback Patrick Robinson is coming home according to Sean Fazende of FOX 8 Sports.
