The Philadelphia Eagles added help for their secondary on Tuesday, agreeing to a one-year deal with cornerback Patrick Robinson.
The Indianapolis Colts released Robinson on March 10 after he completed just one season of a three-year, $13.5 million contract he had signed in 2016. He only played seven games last season due to an assortment of injuries.
Robinson, 29, was a first-round pick (32nd overall) of the Saints in 2010. He spent the first five seasons of his career in New Orleans before going to the San Diego Chargers for a year and the Colts last season. In 81 career games (49 starts), Robinson has totaled 260 tackles, 10 interceptions, 59 passes defensed and three forced fumbles.
Even after signing Robinson, the Eagles are still thin at cornerback heading into the draft. The two starting corners from a year ago, Nolan Carroll and Leodis McKelvin, are no longer on the team. The Eagles cut McKelvin and let Carroll walk in free agency.
