Saints agree to terms with Patrick Robinson

Philadelphia Eagles Patrick Robinson 30 will sign with the Saints in free agency according to reports

The details of the contract are not finalized, but will be done around 4 p.m. on Wednesday when free agency opens up.

Robinson would fit well as a slot defender on the Patriots defense, who just lost Malcolm Butler to the Tennessee Titans.

After that disastrous year, Robinson was forced to take a discounted one-year deal in Philadelphia, and he made the most of it. Robinson's biggest play of the year came in the NFC Championship game, where he got a 50-yard pick-six that ignited the Eagles' rout over the Minnesota Vikings.

The cash-strapped Eagles wanted to retain Robinson, according to Rapoport and others. He played all 16 games and recorded a career-high-tying four interceptions to help the Eagles win the Super Bowl.

Well, it looks like Patrick Robinson will head back to the team that he started his career with.

Robinson, who is entering his eighth season in the National Football League has seen his value skyrocket this past season.

The Eagles are inevitably going to miss Robinson in their secondary. Touted for his speed and supreme athleticism, the former Seminole was brought in to improve a defense that placed 25th overall in 2009.

The questions now is whether any of them can cover slot receivers as reliably as Robinson.
