Former Colts cornerback Patrick Robinson has found a new home, as he has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, it’s a deal worth $1 million guaranteed.

Robinson was signed as a free agent by the Colts last offseason and played in seven games in 2016, starting six of them and recording 26 tackles, five passes defensed, and a forced fumble. It was a rough season for him, however, as he missed quite a bit of time due to injury and also didn’t play all that well when he was healthy. The Colts made the decision to cut Robinson earlier this offseason.

In his career, the former first round pick has played in 81 games and started 49 of them during stints with the New Orleans Saints (2010-2014), San Diego Chargers (2015), and Indianapolis Colts (2016), recording 255 tackles, a sack, 59 passes defensed, ten interceptions, and three forced fumbles.

The Colts have yet to sign anybody to replace Robinson, though they do have Rashaan Melvin in-house as a potential starting option opposite of Vontae Davis. It’s still a need, however, so it’s a position that the Colts could address in the draft.

There are a lot of former Colts players finding new teams this offseason, and Robinson is actually the second one today. Earlier today Jonotthan Harrison signed with the Jets, and previously this offseason Mike Adams signed with the Panthers, Zach Kerr signed with the Broncos, Josh McNary signed with the Jaguars, Chris Carter signed with the Redskins, and Hugh Thornton signed with the Falcons.
