The Dolphins were one of the teams believed to have interest in cornerback Adam Jones before Jones re-signed with the Bengals on Wednesday and they’ve now moved on to other options.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that the Dolphins are visiting with cornerback Josh Robinson. Robinson, a 2012 third-round pick, has spent his entire career with the Vikings.

Robinson missed most of last season while recovering from a partially torn pectoral muscle, but returned for five games late in the season and the team’s playoff loss to the Seahawks. He started 21 games in his first three seasons, making 155 tackles and intercepting five passes over that span.

The Dolphins added Byron Maxwell in a trade with the Eagles this week, but need more bodies at the position after releasing Brent Grimes.

  1. I would start maxwell and lippett outside and McCain in the slot. Stop spending money on average guys that aren’t good enough to start. If you already have a couple young guys as backups, spending money on another with equal skills does nothing when there are other positions in need of starters

  2. As a Vikings fan, I always thought the experiment to make him a slot corner really messed up his development. The team was pretty pleased with him on the outside and he was good at using the sideline as his ally. But playing in space didn’t suit his talents and not only didn’t this work, but then the injury set him back another year. Maybe a fresh start is what he needs.

  3. Robinson played about 12 plays on defense all season, but because of injuries in the playoff game, he had to be on the field for a while. He was responsible for the miracle pass Wilson completed after the ball was snapped over his head and the ensuing touchdown a few plays later. It’s not really his fault because he hadn’t played all year, but it was definitely unfortunate.

  4. Actually played fairly well under Zimmer when he was healthy. He just wasn’t healthy enough. His lack of size is what got him beat more often than not. Unfortunately, you can’t teach height. Could be a serviceable corner if he can stay healthy.

  5. Josh Robinson was forced to play a few downs in that playoff game against the Seahawks because of injury. Just like any smart QB would do, Russell Wilson took advantage and targeted him. The first of the two passes that went his way was that fantastic throw Wilson made after the snap sailed past him, he fell on it, got up, and thew it for a first down.

    The second was a TD.

    That’s Josh Robinson’s career in a nutshell. Have fun with him, whoever signs him.

  6. He’s an adequate player. Can occasionally make the flashy play but on the flip side he is known to blow coverage sand take bad angles. I guess if you’re in the hunt for a C average player. He’s your type of guy. I wouldn’t expect a lot from him. Other then the occasional headache or a good “Wtf”moments

  7. Good guy, great speed, but had coverage issues with larger WRs. Too bad his last acts in MN were releasing his man from coverage on a long gain and then giving up a TD.

  8. Good, GTFO of Minny. Robinson is PURE TRASH.

    Go back and watch the Wild Card game against Seattle. Robinson was responsible for that fluke play where Wilson scrambled and found the wide open Lockett. Completely blown coverage by Robinson. Effing SCRUB!
