Eagles reportedly working to retain CB Patrick Robinson

12 March 2018 Eagles News

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport, the Eagles are currently working to retain cornerback Patrick Robinson before the tampering window starts later Monday afternoon.

Robinson signed a 1-year deal with the Eagles after being released by the Indianapolis Colts last offseason.

After a shaky training camp and preseason, Robinson emerged as a premier slot cornerback for the Super Bowl champions. Let’s just say the former first round pick began to thrive in Jim Schwartz’ defense.

As of now, it is unclear if the deal will get done or how long it is expected to be but locking up a quality secondary player, who lead the team in regular season interceptions (4) and made a game-altering pick 6 in the NFC championship, seems to be a priority that is expected to get done.

There are currently rumors that the Giants are among teams interested in Robinson should he hit free agency. The tampering period begins 48 hours ahead of the league year so if a deal is not reached by Monday by 12pm ET other teams will have a shot to pitch their offers for Robinson’s services.
