Cardinals Re-Sign Veteren Defensive Tackle Bryan Robinson To One Year Deal

New, comments

The Cardinals remained active in an already busy week, re-signing veteran defensive tackle Bryan Robinson to a one year deal. It wasn't clear if Robinson would return to the team after he remained unsigned the last two months. After the team drafted Dan Williams, Robinson's future with the organization became even more clouded. Be that as it may, the Cardinals decided to bring back the 36-year old to provide veteran leadership and depth at both defensive tackle and end.

Robinson had previously spent that the two seasons in Arizona, out-performing the expectations that were set for him when he signed in 2008. When defensive tackle Gabe Watson suffered a broken knee cap that year from a freak accident in which he fell from a treadmill, Robinson was given the starting job and never looked back. In two seasons he registered 33 tackles, 2 sacks, and one forced fumble.

Although he's entering his 13th season, Robinson provides depth along the defensive line and is already familiar with the defensive playbook. At this point in the offseason, this shoud be the last signing for the defensive line as the Cardinals are now set at defensive tackle and end. Are you happy that Robinson was brought back and will be contribute in 2010?
