After signing defensive end Chris Long earlier in the day, the Eagles continue to add veteran playmakers to their defense as Robinson heads to Philadelphia after spending last season with the Colts. The cornerback was limited throughout last season due to a groin injury but still managed to record 26 tackles, five pass deflections and one forced fumble in seven games (six starts). Robinson should secure a starting role in an otherwise young Eagles secondary as long as he can remain healthy.
Robinson (groin) was released by the Colts on Friday, Kevin Bowen of the team's official site reports.
Almost a year after signing a three-year deal with the Colts, Robinson now finds himself out of a job. The veteran cornerback was plagued by injuries throughout last season, as he recorded 26 tackles, five pass deflections and one forced fumble in seven games (six starts). He was placed on injured reserve in early December due to a groin ailment. The 29-year-old will now test the market; he should attract the attention of at least a few teams trying to bolster their secondaries.
Robinson (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Robinson has missed the last two contests due to groin aliment, prompting the team to shut him down for the remainder of the season. The veteran played in seven games (six starts) this season, recording 26 tackles (19 solo), five pass deflections, and one forced fumble. Look for Darius Butler to take over as starter for the remainder of the season.
Robinson (groin) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.
Robinson was sidelined for Monday's win over the Jets, but he could return in Week 14 given his limited participation in practice Wednesday. If he's ultimately unable to play, however, Darius Butler and Rashaan Melvin figure to have expanded roles at cornerback.
