Linebacker Keenan Robinson has decided to retire from the NFL.
The Bills placed Robinson on the reserve/retired list on Thursday. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Robinson didn’t feel he had it physically as he worked toward a seventh professional season.
Robinson signed with the Bills in July after spending the last two seasons with the Giants. He played all 16 games in 2016 Manti Te'o Jersey , but a quad injury limited him to six games last season. Robinson spent the first four years of his career with Washington, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft, but did not play in 2013 after tearing a pectoral muscle for the second time in as many years.
With Robinson out of the picture De'Vondre Campbell Jersey , the Bills will likely be choosing among Deon Lacey, Ramon Humber, Julian Stanford and Tanner Vallejo when they fill out their group of backup linebackers.
One of the biggest busts in recent draft history is getting another shot. In Cleveland.
Greg Robinson Kyle Emanuel Jersey , the second overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, has signed with the Browns. To make room for Robinson on the 90-player roster, the Browns cut offensive tackle Rod Johnson Doug Flutie Jersey , a 2017 fifth-round pick who spent his rookie year on injured reserve.
An offensive tackle from Auburn, Robinson was viewed as a big-time prospect when the Rams chose him in 2014. But although he was a starter for three years with the Rams, he never developed into the kind of player they hoped he would be.
A year ago the Rams traded Robinson to the Lions Shaun Alexander Jersey , who started him for six games early in the year but waived him midway through the season. He cleared waivers and hasn’t been with an NFL team since.
