Robinson was let go by the Jets on Friday. Through 10 games with New York last season, Robinson logged seven solo tackles and recovered a fumble. The LSU product missed the first four games of the 2018 season due to a suspension after being arrested in December 2017 on charges of marijuana possession. Robinson logged 1,025 defensive snaps over 22 games with the Niners before being traded to the Jets partway through the 2017 season, when he would log only 103 defensive snaps over 16 games.
The Jets are expected to activate Robinson (suspension) on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Robinson has served his four-game suspension, but the Jets won't use him in Week 5 against the Broncos. He'll likely be in the fold Week 6 against the Colts but it's not expected he'll fill a starting role.
Robinson (ankle) lined up with the first-team defense during Wednesday's minicamp practice, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports. Showing no signs of the ankle injury he suffered in the 49ers' season finale, Robinson reportedly made a leaping interception on a deep pass from Brian Hoyer during seven-on-seven drills. He rolled with the first-string unit because Jimmie Ward (collarbone) wasn't able to participate in full, but if Ward switches to safety ahead of the upcoming campaign as expected, Robinson would likely become a mainstay in the starting lineup.
Robinson (ankle) is slated to be fully recovered by the start of the 49ers' offseason program in April, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Robinson was carted off the field during the team's Jan. 1 loss to the Seahawks, but he luckily avoided any serious damage despite leaving the facility on crutches. He's projected to compete for a starting spot at cornerback in 2017 after a rookie campaign in which he racked up 28 tackles, eight passes defensed, and one interception in 14 games.
Robinson (hamstring) was active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Robinson played through a hamstring ailment Sunday en route to a four-tackle performance.
