Saints Waive OT Cornelius Lucas, Re-Sign DB Josh Robinson

The New Orleans Saints officially waived OT Cornelius Lucas on Monday and re-signed DB Josh Robinson.

Robinson, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Vikings back in 2012. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.015 million rookie contract with the Vikings before signing a one-year contract with the Buccaneers in 2016.

Tampa elected to re-sign Robinson to a two-year, $6.5 million contract last year, but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. The Saints later signed him to a contract in October and he’s been on and off of their roster this season.

In 2018, Robinson appeared in 11 games and recorded six tackles and no interceptions.

Lucas, 27, signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State back in 2014. He has managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his three years in the NFL and finished playing out his three-year, $1,550,000 contract with the Lions.

Lucas returned to the Lions last year on a restricted deal, but was among the team’s final roster cuts. The Rams signed him to a contract a few weeks into the regular season and brought him back on a new deal this past April.

Unfortunately, Lucas wound up being among the Rams’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and he’s been on and off of the Saints’ roster the past few weeks.

In 2018, Lucas has appeared in one game for the Saints.
