LT Depth Still a Concern, Bring in Help
With All-Pro Trent Williams holding out, the Washington Redskins need to look at additional options to fill their gaping hole of depth. With limited options in camp to fill the starting role, and Erik Flowers living up to his bust label, the Redskins looked to the thin free agent market. They brought in both Donald Penn and Corey Robinson for a workout. When the dust settled, the Redskins signed Robinson with contract negotiations still ongoing with Penn.
The news of Robinson’s signing and uncertainty of Penn has been confirmed by John Keim:
Jay Gruden on Penn/Robinson: "No update now on Penn. Corey should practice today; give him a look. Little short at tackle. Catalina is playing tackle; Flowers is playing tackle. Right side is OK… See another body in here; give him a chance."

Robinson was drafted in the 7th round of the 2015 draft by the Detroit Lions out of South Carolina. Corey started the 2018 season with the Carolina Panthers after being traded there from the Lions. He was eventually cut and then signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in November of the same year. Robinson has started 9 games in twenty eight games played.
