If you’ve been staying close to the internet Saturday hoping to hear news on how a potential visit between New Orleans Saints free agent cornerback Patrick Robinson and the Pittsburgh Steelers went, apparently it hasn’t happened yet.
According to Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate, Robinson will begin his visits next week, with his first stop being with the Steelers.
It sounds like Robinson has several suitors, however, as it was reported last week that the Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings also have interest in Robinson, in addition to his current team, who drafted him in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Florida State. The Dolphins, however, signed Steelers free agent cornerback Brice McCain a few days ago, so perhaps they’re no longer interested in Robinson. We’ll see.
Underhill reported Saturday that Robinson will keep his options open with the Saints.
The Steelers are likely to sign a free agent cornerback at some point during free agency now that they’ve lost McCain and don’t seem interested in re-signing veteran Ike Taylor. They did tender cornerback Antwon Blake on Monday, however, so unless he gets an offer from another team that the Steelers decide not to match, he should be back with the team in 2015.
