27 year old Robinson was an absolute stud back in his college days making 1st Team All-SEC during his 2013 season at Auburn. The NFL scouts drooled over Robinson he’s 6’5″, 332 pounds and when the Rams took him with the #2 pick in 2014, they signed him to a fully guaranteed 4 year $21 million contract.
The bad news for the Rams he didn’t live up to the hype so they traded him to the Detroit Lions for a 6th round pick in 2017. The Browns signed Robinson in 2018 and re signed him in 2019. Sources tell us the Browns recently informed Robinson they would not be bringing him back for the 2020 season.
