Cornerback Patrick Robinson played a vital role for the Philadelphia Eagles' defense during a run to the Super Bowl, but he'll suit up for a different team in 2018, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Originally a first-round pick by the Saints in the 2010 NFL Draft, Robinson bounced around between the Colts and Chargers over the last few years.
In New Orleans, Robinson can still compete for a title with a team that has a legitimate shot to contend. He played all 16 games and recorded a career-high-tying four interceptions to help the Eagles win the Super Bowl.More news: Shane McMahon's Big WrestleMania 34 Announcement Revealed
Apparently re-signing Robinson wasn't as important as many were led to believe. Robinson broke out for four interceptions last year-five if you include the playoffs-while earning PFF's No. 4 grade out of 120 qualifiers at cornerback. Rapoport previously reported that Robinson was headed back to Philly.
Though they missed out on tight end Jimmy Graham, the New Orleans Saints are committing to a reunion with another former player. Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore made an instant impact and Ken Crawley emerged as a solid starter.
