A league source tells Aaron Wilson of Scout.com that the contract is pending a physical, but should be finalized sometime during rookie mini-camp, which begins this Friday, May 11th. The deal is for four-years and worth $2.48 million. It includes a $385,652 signing bonus.
After being drafted, General Manager Jerry Reese referred to the inexperienced Robinson as the Jason Pierre-Paul of tight ends.
“We think this guy is kind of a JPP of tight ends," Reese said, later adding: "He is just a big, gigantic man with long arms. And he is really a good athlete. This guy is almost 6-5, 270 pounds. He ran 4.57. He has got those freakish athletic numbers. He hasn’t scratched the surface with respect – like JPP."
If he turns out to have any of the success JPP has had, Big Blue got themselves a hell of a deal.
