Eagles legend Patrick Robinson retires after 11 years in the NFL
Philadelphia Eagles legend Patrick Robinson informed the New Orleans Saints today that he is retiring. Robinson is hanging up the cleats after a very productive 11-year NFL career, which included a Super Bowl ring with the Philadelphia Eagles.
After winning the Super Bowl as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, Robinson signed with the Saints. The soon to be 34-year old Robinson was slated to start for the New Orleans Saints this year at cornerback this year, so the news of him retiring comes at somewhat of a surprise.
During his time in Philadelphia, Robinson most notably made a game-changing play against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game. With the Eagles down 7-0 in the first quarter, Robinson intercepted a pass and took it back for a touchdown to tie the game. As someone who was fortunate to attend the NFC Championship game, I can honestly tell you that this play changed everything and almost burst my ear drums. I have never been in a stadium so loud before and probably never will be ever again.
As for the current Philadelphia Eagles, they just released their unofficial depth chart ahead of Thursday’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. You can check that out here.
