Suffice to say, he outplayed the contract and became a key cog at cornerback for the Eagles defense throughout a Super Bowl-winning season. According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, the deal is worth up to $20 million over four years, with $10 million in guaranteed money. His first five years in the league were all played in the Big Easy.

Robinson was drafted by the Saints at the end of the First Round in 2010. He then spent one year with the Chargers and then the next season with the Indianapolis Colts. The 30-year-old Robinson played well as Philadelphia's slot corner in 2017, playing in all 16 games and snagging 4 interceptions to go with 18 passes defensed.

Entering the free agency period, the Eagles made it clear that cornerback Patrick Robinson was a player they wanted to bring back.

Trump's personal assistant fired for security issue, report says
A since-fired State Department employee said this morning that Tillerson found out he was sacked when he saw Trump's tweet. His staff secretary, Rob Porter, resigned February 7 after reports that two ex-wives had accused him of domestic violence.

Apparently re-signing Robinson wasn't as important as many were led to believe. He also had a memorable 50-yard interception return for a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The questions now is whether any of them can cover slot receivers as reliably as Robinson. His presence, along with fellow former Saint Malcolm Jenkins, was critical for an elite Eagles defense that dominated throughout their title-clinching campaign.

Well, it looks like Patrick Robinson will head back to the team that he started his career with.
