The Giants wasted little time getting the “JPP of tight ends” under contract.
Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the team has reached agreement on a four-year deal with tight end Adrien Robinson. The deal is contingent on Robinson passing a physical at the team’s rookie minicamp this weekend. Robinson was one of two fourth-round picks by the Giants.
Robinson didn’t play a major role in the passing game at Cincinnati, catching just 12 passes last season. The Giants were clearly impressed by his athleticism, though, and General Manager Jerry Reese made the comparison to Jason Pierre-Paul quoted up top in his post-draft comments to the media. Robinson will definitely get a chance to make good on that perceived potential with the Giants. He will join Martellus Bennett and Bear Pascoe as the healthy Giants tight ends this summer while Travis Beckum and Jake Ballard each recover from serious knee injuries suffered in the Super Bowl.
The Giants have six more draft picks left to sign, led by first-round pick David Wilson.
