Patrick Robinson To Sign 4-Year Deal With Saints

Philadelphia Eagles Patrick Robinson 30 will sign with the Saints in free agency according to reports

Peterson, 30, was coming off his best National Football League season, matching career highs in interceptions (four) and passes defended (18). He played all 16 games and recorded a career-high-tying four interceptions to help the Eagles win the Super Bowl.

Robinson, a 30-year-old free agent, agreed to sign a four-year contract with the New Orleans Saints after negotiations with the Eagles stalled, Rapoport reported. Robinson's biggest play of the year came in the NFC Championship game, where he got a 50-yard pick-six that ignited the Eagles' rout over the Minnesota Vikings. Robinson heads to another solid defense who could use his services in the nickel, where he thrived with the Eagles.

Robinson's first Saints tenure didn't work out as hoped, but he's coming back as a reliable veteran with Super Bowl experience.

The Saints' defense experienced a quick turnaround last season.

Robinson will be a tough loss for the Eagles, but at least for the first time in ages, they have good depth at corner, though no prototypical slot corners to take Robinson's place. Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore made an instant impact and Ken Crawley emerged as a solid starter. Five seasons later, Robinson ended up being the latest patron of the Saints' revolving door and cornerback during the Drew Brees-Sean Payton era.

The questions now is whether any of them can cover slot receivers as reliably as Robinson.
