Former Eagles playoff hero, Patrick Robinson, who played for the Saints in 2020, has announced his retirement from the NFL.
A great bargain signing, Robinson turned out to be, on the way to a championship. In the 2017 offseason, Robinson signed a one-year, $775,000 deal to play for the Eagles. He played all 16 games that season, starting eight of them, and finished the season with four interceptions.
Robinson only played for one season, in 2017, as an Eagle, but forever made a lasting impact on the city with his contribution to a Super Bowl title. His play at nickel cornerback that season was superb and his pick-6 in the NFC Championship game is one of the most memorable plays in franchise history. This play ignited a 38-7 rout of the Vikings at home to send the Eagles to the Super Bowl.
Robinson, a former first-round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2010, played 11 seasons in the NFL. He finishes his career with 16 interceptions.
Congrats to Patrick Robinson on a great career.
