The Saints have held preliminary contract discussions with cornerback Patrick Robinson and there is “mutual interest” in reaching an agreement, according to a source.

Robinson, a former first-round pick, is set to reach free agency. If a deal is not reached, the cornerback will be free to sign with another team when the league year begins on March 10.

Robinson served in various capacities last season before settling into the slot, where he held opposing quarterbacks to a 57.5 quarterback rating, according to Pro Football Focus. If he is brought back, the Saints would likely eye him for a similar role next season.

How about the Saints offer to pay his cab fare to the airport? Sounds good to me

Re: Contract talks with P-Rob

Say what you want, but Patrick Robinson has shown slivers of talent at times; I don't see anything wrong with allowing Dennis Allen the chance to work with him.

Just look how he had Tracy Porter playing...

Waiting on potential is what gets GMs fired

Re: Contract talks with P-Rob

He did really well as the nickelback this past season. It took a while but I think everyone finally learned that he just isn't suited for playing on the outside. He's been a class act throughout his struggles and shown great perseverance so I have no issue with bringing him back to compete for the nickel job.

If its for the vet minimum then I guess. Just I didn't like the pick then and haven't liked his play of the field, would rather him gone. Its bad when I'm at home and can tell where the opposing QB is going to throw the ball

Sure he's worth vet minimum at least.

As long as he's not a starting outside CB he should get a chance to start at nickel back.

Keep in mind; we need depth at CB! Don't tell me you're counting on White or Breaux or SJB (aka UFO)

Re: Contract talks with P-Rob

I expect nice things from Dixon. He got beat covering top players (AJ Green...) or he had to defend some perfect throws without safety help. Otherwise he looked good in rookie year.
Miles freakin Austin owned Prob.
