Saints bring back CB Patrick Robinson on four-year deal

Saints bring back CB Patrick Robinson on four-year deal

According to ESPN, the four-year deal includes a $5 million signing bonus, $10 million in guaranteed money and could be worth up to $20 million over the life of the deal.

With that, Robinson reunites with the franchise that drafted him in the first round out of Florida State back in 2010. In 2015, they let Robinson go in free agency, following several years of uneven production.

Peterson, 30, was coming off his best National Football League season, matching career highs in interceptions (four) and passes defended (18). Robinson's claim to fame of the year was his pick-six of former Vikings QB Case Keenum in the NFC Championship Game, that completely changed the momentum in the Eagles' favor.




The Eagles attempted to re-sign Robinson, but ultimately didn't have the cap space for what he sought. The 30-year-old mostly covered the slot in Philadelphia. The Eagles will face the Saints on the road this upcoming season.

A savvy and speedy eight-year veteran, Robinson thrived covering slot receivers for the Eagles in 2017. That improved defense helped New Orleans get back in the playoffs after going 7-9 three straight years. But Robinson would certainly represent an upgrade over Johnson Bademosi at cornerback and give them a reliable underneath corner. It's a good signing for a team that's loading up for one last run with Drew Brees.
