Bryan Robinson Open To Playing, Could Be Good DL Depth Help For Cardinals

While running back Jason Wright has decided at age 28 to call it a career in the NFL, 37-year old defensive lineman Bryan Robinson has not yet called it quits. According to Kent Somers with the Arizona Republic, Robinson is "interested in playing if the right opportunity presents itself."

Obviously, the Cardinals have a starting defensive tackle in Dan Williams, but Robinson might not be a bad idea to bring back another year if he would come and play for Arizona again.

What exactly Robinson means by the right opportunity is unclear. It could be location, money, playing time, or anything. But he may or may not have interest from teams.

He was not the most effective player, as noted by the fact that he is ranked by PFF as 71st out of 77 tackles that played at least 25 percent of the snaps for the team. But he can still play and lead. 

With the lockout having carried on so long, teams will be seeking as much continuity as is possible. Robinson, having played for over a decade, would not have a hard time learning new schemes or terminology.

With the Cardinals having so little depth currently on the defensive line (only the starters are under contract), I would not be surprised to see him back with the Cardinals to spell Williams and be a veteran leader on the team.
