Robey-Coleman agreed to a one-year contract with the Eagles on Wednesday, Jordan Schultz of ESPN reports.
The 28-year-old logged 36 tackles and two forced fumbles in 16 games (including three starts) for the Rams last season. He'll add depth to Philadelphia's cornerback corps, but Robey-Coleman is unlikely to be a factor in most IDP leagues.
The Rams have informed Robey Coleman that they won't exercise his contract option for 2020, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
A cap hit of $4.5 million seems like a bargain for one of the better slot corners in the league, but the Rams have been forced into tough decisions after giving out big contracts to Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey in recent years. The team's offseason losses so far include Robey-Coleman, DL Michael Brockers and ILB Cory Littleton. It shouldn't take long for NRC to find a new home.
Robey-Coleman finished with 36 tackles, seven pass breakups and two forced fumbles over 16 games in 2019.
Robey-Coleman was impressive in coverage this year, as he allowed 6.3 yards per target, 25.3 yards per game and one touchdown. The 27-year-old corner has two more years on his contract at $5.25 million per season, and barring a free-agent or draft acquisition, he's in line for another consistent workload in 2020.
Robey-Coleman signed a three-year, $15.75 million contract with the Rams on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Robey-Coleman had a solid 2017 season with the Rams, as he compiled 49 tackles, nine pass breakups and two interceptions in 15 games. However, he'll have to battle for defensive snaps now that the Chiefs' Marcus Peters and the Broncos' Aqib Talib were traded to the Rams. Therefore, he may be a solid depth corner for the Rams, but fantasy owners should beware a decline in his snap count.
Robey-Coleman recorded 49 tackles (39 solo) and two interceptions during the 2017 season.
The first-year Ram played primarily in nickel sets while manning the slot this season, and it's a role he's beginning to be pigeonholed into. Robey-Coleman is set to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason along with fellow defensive backs Trumaine Johnson and Lamarcus Joyner, so Los Angeles has some question marks in the secondary to address. If Robey-Coleman were to open 2018 as a cornerback (with the Rams or another team), it could provide a notable boost to his fantasy value. However, it's more likely that he continues serving as a nickelback.
Robey-Coleman (thigh) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Head coach Sean McVay hinted earlier in the week that Robey-Coleman was expected to return to action this week after sitting out of Sunday's game against the Saints. With no limitations in practice, the cornerback can shift his focus to containing the Cardinals' passing attack this week.
Rams head coach Sean McVay indicated that Robey-Coleman (thigh) should be able to practice this week, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Robey-Coleman did not play in Sunday's win over the Saints after not practicing last week, but McVay said that he is now "90-95 percent healthy." The 25-year-old's practice reps Wednesday and the rest of the week should indicate the accuracy of his coach's assessment and his availability for Week 13.
Robey-Coleman (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Coleman exited the Week 11 loss to the Vikings with the thigh injury and was unable to practice this week, effectively sealing his fate for Sunday's contest. With the fifth-year cornerback unavailable, Dominique Hatfield and Kayvon Webster could be thrust into enhanced roles in the secondary.
Robey-Coleman (thigh) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Robey-Coleman injured his thigh in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and it looks like his recovery is not going fast enough for him to participate in Week 12. However, an official ruling on his status is unlikely to be determined until shortly before kickoff. Kevin Peterson and Dominique Hatfield will presumably see an increase in snaps should Robey-Coleman ultimately sit out.
Robey-Coleman injured his thigh during Sunday's game against the Vikings and is doubtful to return, Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Robey-Coleman has been an important part of the Rams' secondary, accruing 29 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions through nine games. The Rams' defense is skimpy without Robey-Coleman since Kayvon Webster (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of the game. With just two healthy corners remaining, Trumaine Johnson and Dominique Hatfield, the Rams may have to pull down a safety to the cornerback position for man-coverage situations.
According to head coach Sean McVay, Robey-Coleman may start this Sunday if Kayvon Webster (shoulder) is ruled out, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Webster did not participate in practice Thursday so there's a chance Robey-Coleman is called upon to start Sunday. However, Webster's status for Friday's practice will give a better indication of what to expect in the Rams' secondary this week.
Robey-Coleman signed with the Rams on Friday.
Robey-Coleman joins the Rams after playing college ball at the Los Angeles Coliseum for USC. In returning to his former stomping ground as a Bills player last season, Robey-Coleman intercepted two passes, returning one for a touchdown. Although those were the 25-year-old's only picks of the campaign, Robey-Coleman still showed good promise as a nickel cornerback, where he figures to bolster the Rams' ranks this season.
Robey-Coleman was released by the Bills on Monday.
Robey-Coleman's release comes as a bit of a surprise right before free agency begins. He had 35 tackles, a forced fumble, and seven passes defensed, including two interceptions, while playing in all 16 games in 2016. He'll be entering his age-25 season in 2017 and is coming off a campaign in which he emerged as one of the league's better nickel cornerbacks.
Robey-Coleman lost his main nickel role to rookie Kevon Seymour in practice last week. He only played 15 defensive snaps in Sunday's win at Cincinnati.
The Bills had trouble in the secondary leading up to the big Week 11 win, so they turned to Seymour -- who offers more size -- for a bigger role. (Seymour ended up with 40 snaps.) Since the secondary ended up having one of its best games of the season, this situation may continue. Robey-Coleman did end up with three tackles and one pass defensed in that limited action.
Robey-Coleman picked off his first two passes of the season during Sunday's win over the Rams. He returned one to the house, his second TD of the season following a scoop-and-score during the Week 2 loss to the Jets.
This was quite the return to home for the USC product, and Robey-Coleman certainly didn't let down any friends and family in attendance. That all said, Robey-Coleman isn't a starter and has played a modest 53.9 percent of the defensive snaps this season, leaving him off the IDP radar, as his 10 tackles attest.
While Robey-Coleman (knee) was able to return to practice Tuesday, he won't travel with the team for Thursday's preseason finale, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Robey-Coleman looks to be on track to return for Week 1, when he's expected to serve as the Bills' main nickel corner.
Robey-Coleman remains sidelined with a knee injury but expects to be back for Week 1 of the regular season, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Yeah, give me, I feel like another week, two weeks I will be ready," said Robey-Coleman. "I am doing good. I did a lot of running today, side to side movement and things like that and it felt real good on my joints, and felt good on my body."
Rookie Kevon Seymour is thought to be pushing Robey-Coleman for the top nickel job, but he's also injured. Assuming Robey-Coleman can in fact suit up for Week 1, we think he'll still be the coach's choice. Seymour may push him all season, however.
Robey-Coleman left practice early Tuesday due to a quad contusion, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Robey-Coleman just returned Monday from an ankle injury, so he must be getting frustrated that things aren't breaking his way as he tries to seal up the main nickel job. A rising Kevon Seymour continues to make a good impression in his stead.
Robey-Coleman (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports.
Robey-Coleman missed Buffalo's most recent preseason game nursing his ankle, but after a week of healing, the 24-year-old appears poised to pick up where he left off.
Robey-Coleman didn't play in Sunday's preseason win over the Giants as he continues to be bothered by an ankle injury.
Robey-Coleman should enter the season as the team's nickelback and No. 3 overall corner, though he had enough ups and downs last season that it would help if he can get back this week and further cement the job, particularly with rookie Kevon Seymour coming on strong.
