Eagles sign cornerback Patrick Robinson

Eagles NFL

PHOENIX - According to a source, the Philadelphia Eagles are close to a deal with former cornerback Patrick Robinson, who was a former first round pick (32nd overall) of the New Orleans Saints in 2010.

Robinson played for the Saints for five years from 2010 to 2014, before bouncing around the league a bit. He played for the San Diego Chargers in 2015, and the Indianapolis Colts in 2016 Robinson's 2016 season was cut short when he was sent to injured reserve with a groin injury.

Robinson will join a depleted Eagles cornerback group that includes Jalen Mills, Dwayne Gratz, Ron Brooks, C.J. Smith, Aaron Grymes and Mitchell White. The Eagles lost both 2016 starting corners when they released Leodis McKelvin, and Nolan Carroll left in free agency to play for the Cowboys.

It is expected that Robinson will sign a one year deal. We'll update when the move is official and the money details are known.

Update: It's done.
