The news at the beginning of the week was that the Eagles were deep in negotiations with Patrick Robinson for a new contract. Fast forward to today and it’s being reported that Patrick Robinson is coming back to where it all began.
The #Eagles and Patrick Robinson got close on a contract extension on Monday. Then stalled. … then his window opened. And the #Saints jumped in and locked him down. He’s a former #Saints first round pick.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 14, 2018
The Saints took Robinson with the 32nd pick of the 2010 draft. That pick was a result of winning SB XLIV. Robinson played out his rookie contract to mixed results. While at times the interception leader for the Saints, he was often burned by the opposition. He would finish the 2013 season on IR.
His next stops were to the Chargers in 2015 and the Colts in 2016. His most recent tenure with the Eagles in 2017 resulted in him getting that coveted SB ring. Robinson would play in all 16 games in 2017, starting 8, defending 18 passes, and 4 interceptions. He also ran back a 50 yard interception for a TD against the Vikings in the NFCCG. It’s worth pointing out his production really improved once he played where a pass rush was present.
