We've re-signed LT Greg Robinson!

Monday, the Cleveland Browns have made a short term decision at left tackle. Robinson has agreed to a 1-year contract. He did not allow a sack of Mayfield once inserted into the lineup at left tackle in replace of rookie undrafted free agent Desmond Harrison.
Robinson appeared in all 16 games in 2018 for the Browns. He started the final eight games. Robinson was one of the big changes made by interim head coach Gregg Williams and offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens following the firing of Hue Jackson and Todd Haley.
The entire offensive line improved dramatically due to the switch from Harrison to Robinson at left tackle. In the first eight games of 2018, the offensive line surrendered 33 sacks. The line allowed just five sacks in the final eight games.
In addition to limiting the number of sacks allowed, Robinson helped rookie running back Nick Chubb finish with a Browns rookie rushing record 996 yards.
The 1-year contract for Robinson does not mean the Browns will not address the left tackle position in April’s NFL Draft. It likely eliminates general manager John Dorsey using the 17th overall pick on a future franchise left tackle.
