The Colts announced Wednesday night that they have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Patrick Robinson.

Not long after the team made the announcement, Robinson released a statement in which he said he never agreed to a contract with another team and never gave his former agent, Kevin Conner, permission to agree to a deal with another team. Robinson visited the Cowboys last weekend and multiple reports following that visit said the Cowboys expected to sign Robinson before he left the building.

The Colts see Robinson as a starter. He made 10 starts and had one interception in his only season with the Chargers last year and has 10 career interceptions. He played his first four seasons with the Saints, who drafted him in the first round in 2010.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Robinson will sign a three-year deal with the Colts.

“We’ve been interested in Patrick since early in free agency and we’re glad it finally came together,” Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said in a team statement. “We have some strong ties on our coaching staff with him so that familiarity is always a plus.

“He is a versatile, experienced and steady corner that gives us immediate help opposite Vontae [Davis]. He was a fit on a number of levels in regards to overall skill, but also adds some strong intangibles. We’re happy with this addition to our team.”

    They said the same thing about Greg Toler when they signed him. Turned out he couldn’t cover a pot with a lid.

    We’ll see, I guess.

    So I’m confused. Has Robinson himself actually agreed to sign yet?

    They’ll cut him next March.. WR in the AFC South are smiling at this signing by the Colts.

    The Chargers made no effort to retain him. That has to be a red flag.

    Rated as the 28th best corner last year, this gives the Colts a pretty good secondary and an upgrade on Toler. Mostly, it allows them to use higher picks on offensive line, inside linebacker, and outside linebacker.

    If the Chargers let ANYONE go, they are not worth signing. San Diego is absent of any Pro Bowl players (except maybe QB Rivers and TE Gates). CB Robinson may be a starter in Indy, but that is because they have a worse secondary than the Chargers, which is amazing. The Colts will push last years Saints Defense to be the worst of all time.

    “He is a versatile, experienced and steady corner that gives us immediate help……..Help at what? PR couldn’t cover a turtle if 3 legs were in a cast.

    Something fishy is going on here. He supposedly agreed to terms with the Cowboys, but needed to change agents first. Then agreed to terms with the Colts with a new agent. Then “the player” issued a statement that he hadn’t agreed to a contract. What is going on here?

    How do you replace a disappointment at CB that had 0 INTs last year?

    With another disappointment at CB that had 1 INT last year…

    Shady move. Funny thing is you went to the only team more dysfunctional than Dallas.

  14. azkurgan says: Mar 24, 2016 6:14 AM

    A Luck on field = playoffs, Suncawy. Colts will be there, hope your team makes it…

  15. doubleogator says: Mar 24, 2016 8:49 AM

    He definitely was not a fan favorite in New Orleans…

  16. madddogg365 says: Mar 24, 2016 10:02 AM

    The Colts are REALLY scraping the bottom of the barrel if they are counting on him as a starter.

  17. saints737 says: Mar 24, 2016 11:19 AM

    He’ll be a good nickel or dime back…

  18. mrlaloosh says: Mar 24, 2016 4:10 PM
