Cornerback Patrick Robinson must prove he can stay healthy before seeing another large contract.
The Eagles are providing him that chance.
Robinson agreed to a one-year deal Tuesday, the team announced. He joins Philadelphia following an injury-marred year in Indianapolis, hence his contract being of the “prove it” variety worth the veteran minimum, a source confirmed to Pro Football Talk.
The Colts signed Robinson in 2016 to a three-year, $13.5 million contract following a 16-game campaign in San Diego.
But he played only seven games, suffering a concussion in the season opener and later a groin injury that landed him on injured reserve. He has been diagnosed with multiple concussions during the past two years.
Robinson, 29, arguably was the Chargers’ most valuable off-season acquisition in 2015. He similarly arrived there on a one-year deal and showcased the versatility to contribute outside and in the nickel. He finished with 59 tackles and an interception.
In 2010, the Saints drafted Robinson in the first round out of Florida State.
