New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Friday that the club has agreed to terms with cornerback Patrick Robinson, the Saints' first-round draft choice, on a five-year contract.
Robinson, a 5-foot-11-inch, 191-pound cornerback out of Florida State University, was the Saints' first selection of the April draft, taken with the 32nd overall pick. The Miami native started 25 of the 45 career games he played for the Seminoles, making 117 tackles with seven interceptions, 21 pass defenses and four forced fumbles.
A speedy defender, Robinson earned second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors as a senior in 2009 as he started all 12 games en route to being named FSU's defensive MVP, posting a career-best 52 tackles with 11 pass defenses and two forced fumbles. The 22-year-old posted a school-record streak of five consecutive games with an interception in 2007.
The deal will complete the signings of the club's 2010 draft class as the Saints will open training camp with a pair of practices on Friday.
