Robinson, an offseason acquistion most recently with the Vikings, practiced on both the second-team defense and special teams in Tuesday's mini-camp session, Joe Kania of the team's official site reports. The 25-year-old corner, a rather unheralded but potentially key component of the Bucs' offseason effort to revamp their beleaguered secondary, was seen working with the second-team defense Tuesday. Robinson also took reps as a gunner on the punt team, an area in which he has plenty of experience. The UCF product notably was in on 538 special-teams snaps over the first four years of his career with the Vikings, and the versatility will only serve to enhance his chances of sticking on the final roster come September.
Robinson has agreed to terms with the Buccaneers. Robinson returns to his home state of Florida after four seasons with the Vikings, for whom he totaled 157 tackles and five interceptions. While a pectoral injury limited Robinson to just five games played last year, he joins veteran Brent Grimes as additions to the Buccaneers' secondary this offseason.
Robinson is unlikely to return to the Vikings roster for the 2016 season, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports. Robinson opened the year on the physically unable to perform list with a torn pectoral muscle and never got his season off the ground, as he appeared in just five games and made only two tackles. He recorded five interceptions, 15 passese defended and 151 tackles from 2012-2014, so there might be enough there for another team to take a chance on him.
Robinson is active for the first time this season in Sunday's game against Atlanta, ESPN reports. Robinson was on the physically unable to perform list from the beginning of the preseason until Nov. 11. He'll have a reserve secondary role with Trae Waynes inactive with an ankle injury
Robinson (pectoral) was activated from the PUP list, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Robinson has been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of the preseason and returned to practice three weeks ago. He'll likely have a minimal role off the bench as a reserve in the secondary.
