The Carolina Panthers have struck a four-year deal with rookie offensive guard Duke Robinson that included a $171,590 signing bonus, according to a league source.
The fifth-round draft pick’s deal has a maximum value of $2.663 million if a fourth-year escalator clause is triggered.
Robinson’s contract includes minimum base salaries of $310,000, $395,000, $480,000 and $565,000.
The 6’5, 330-pound former University of Oklahoma standout is the great nephew of singer Smokey Robinson.
Robinson is a two-time All-Big 12 selection who garnered All-American notice for the Sooners.
During his campus Pro Day workout, Robinson registered a 31 1/2 inch vertical leap and bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times.
