The Saints have agreed to sign cornerback Josh Robinson, according to Mike Florio of PFT (Twitter link). Robinson worked out for the Saints late last month and beat out a handful of other corners who were under consideration.
The Saints scanned the market for cornerback help after placing cornerback Patrick Robinson on IR. David Amerson, Sterling Moore, Dexter McDougle, and Robert Nelson were among the players being considered, but Robinson got the job despite having the least name recognition of the bunch.
Robinson entered the league as a third-round pick of the Vikings in 2012 and spent the first four seasons of his career in Minnesota. After that, he spent two years with the Bucs, but he missed the team’s final cut this year. The 27-year-old boasts 74 games of NFL experience, but has not made a start since the 2014 season.
