Buccaneers sign Josh Robinson to one-year contract

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed cornerback Josh Robinson to a one-year contract, the Bucs announced. Having played his college football at UCF, and played high school football at Plantation High School, Robinson returns to his home area.

Robinson entered the league as a third-round pick for the Minnesota Vikings in 2012, and started 21 games over the past four seasons. He was demoted last year after starting the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, playing just 12 defensive snaps over the entire season. He was solid as a rookie, which earned him a starting role in his second year -- one he promptly lost in his third year given his disappointing play.

Sadly, Robinson may be best-known for comparing gay marriage to pedophilia and incest.

Robinson is a good fit in the slot, but will likely have to earn his job. Though The Daily Norseman thinks he's mostly a good fit on the outside. The Bucs offically signed Brent Grimes as a starter today, and still have Johnthan Banks and Alterraun Verner on the roster as well. Given the presence of those four, it seems unlikely the Bucs draft a cornerback early -- though if they do, they could cut Verner and save over $6 million in cap space.
