Carolina Panthers Sign Safety Trenton Robinson

The Carolina Panthers announced Monday the team had agreed to a one-year deal with safety Trenton Robinson.

The Carolina Panthers have found depth at the safety position by adding Trenton Robinson with a one-year deal on Monday, according to the team's site.

The Panthers were in the market for a safety after they released starting safety Roman Harper shortly after Super Bowl 50. They have now found a player who started seven games for the Washington Redskins last year and should push Tre Boston for the starting job on this defense.

Robinson was drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers and was released by the team prior to the 2013 season. He joined the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad but was released a little over a month later and joined the NFC East rival Redskins shortly after.

In the almost three full seasons with the Redskins he has 88 total tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions. He is coming off a career year in 2015 with 52 tackles, one pass defended and one interception in nine games, starting seven of them. He became the starter in Week 2 after Duke Ihenacho suffered a fractured wrist in the season opener.

Robinson's season didn't get a chance to play a full season as a starter after his was cut short due to a hamstring injury that forced him on to injured reserve.
