Panthers reportedly agree to terms with DT A’Shawn Robinson

After adding a pair of hog mollies on Monday, the Carolina Panthers turned their attention to the opposite side of the trenches.

As first reported by NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo, the team has come to terms with defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson. Per Garafolo, the 28-year-old veteran is expected to sign a three-year, $28.5 million deal.

Robinson was selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft by the Detroit Lions. The University of Alabama product stayed in the Motor City for four seasons—where he totaled 172 tackles, 5.0 sacks and three forced fumbles over 58 games.

He’d then move out west to join the Los Angeles Rams beginning in 2020. There, Robinson would cross paths with current Panthers defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, who served as the Rams’ safeties coach, secondary coach and passing game coordinator.

This past season saw Robinson record 13 starts in 17 games for the New York Giants. The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder amassed 62 combined tackles, the second-highest total of his eight-year career.
