Robinson broke out for four interceptions last year-five if you include the playoffs-while earning PFF's No. 4 grade out of 120 qualifiers at cornerback. He was perhaps the steal of free agency a year ago. He then spent one year with the Chargers and then the next season with the Indianapolis Colts.

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. Robinson's claim to fame of the year was his pick-six of former Vikings QB Case Keenum in the NFC Championship Game, that completely changed the momentum in the Eagles' favor. Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore made an instant impact and Ken Crawley emerged as a solid starter.


Robinson would fit well as a slot defender on the Patriots defense, who just lost Malcolm Butler to the Tennessee Titans.

Cornerback Patrick Robinson is returning to where his career began. The Eagles will face the Saints on the road this upcoming season. They also signed linebacker Demario Davis, adding another veteran piece to the puzzle. Robinson played with the Saints from 2010-2014. It's a good signing for a team that's loading up for one last run with Drew Brees.
