Giants Interested In Eagles CB Patrick Robinson


Eliot Shorr-Parks of reports that the Giants are interested in Eagles free agent CB Patrick Robinson.

This comes after the news that the Giants plan to move Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from nickel cornerback to safety for the 2018 season.

Last we heard regarding Robinson, Matt Lombardo reported that the Eagles had opened contract talks with him regarding a long-term extension.

Lombardo adds that while contract talks between the two parties are ongoing, other teams could get involved as we draw closer to the start of free agency on March 14.

The Eagles are in a tough cap situation right now, so it could be tough for them to afford a market-value contract for someone like Robinson, depending on the level of interest in him this offseason.

Robinson, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2010. He spent five years in New Orleans before signing a three-year, $14 million contract with the Colts that included $6 million guaranteed.

The Colts elected to come him loose last March and he eventually signed a one-year contract with the Eagles.

In 2017, Robinson appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and recorded 47 tackles, one sack, four interceptions and 18 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 cornerback out of 120 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 100  – 2018 NFL Free Agents list.
