  • Report: CB Patrick Robinson to sign with Saints

But Robinson would certainly represent an upgrade over Johnson Bademosi at cornerback and give them a reliable underneath corner. According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, the deal is worth up to $20 million over four years, with $10 million in guaranteed money.

Robinson, 30, signed a one-year deal with the Eagles last offseason and helped the franchise win their first Super Bowl.

Suffice to say, he outplayed the contract and became a key cog at cornerback for the Eagles defense throughout a Super Bowl-winning season.

The 5-foot-11, 191-pound Robinson, who can play in the slot, has appeared in 97 career games with 57 starts, totaling 302 tackles (251 solo), 14 interceptions, 77 passes defensed, two sacks and a fumble recovery. Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore made an instant impact and Ken Crawley emerged as a solid starter. His increased efforts were the catalyst of him grading out as an 89.8 by Pro Football Focus, the sixth-best mark for cornerbacks in 2017.

The Saints' defense experienced a quick turnaround last season.

Robinson spent the first four years of his career with the Saints after being drafted with the #32 overall pick in the 2010 draft.

All of those players are under contract and younger than 25.
