Buccaneers To Re-Sign Josh Robinson

The Buccaneers have reached an agreement to re-sign cornerback Josh Robinson to a two-year, $6.5MM deal that includes $3.5MM guaranteed, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link)."<strong

Robinson, 26, signed a one-year, $2MM deal with Tampa Bay last offseason, joining the Bucs after four years with the Vikings. He barely played — at least on defense — in 2016, however, managing all of two defensive snaps. Instead, Robinson’s contributions came on special teams, where he played on nearly 70% of Tampa’s plays, emerging as an excellent gunner.

While Robinson’s price tag could foretell a larger role on defense in 2017, he’ll likely be stuck behind Brent Grimes, Vernon Hargreaves, and others when the regular season begins.
