Robinson, 27, signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract extension with the Browns prior to the 2019 season. Cleveland had no intention of re-signing him this coming season, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

Robinson played three seasons with the Los Angeles Rams before playing for the Detroit Lions and the Browns. The Rams selected Robinson with the No. 2 pick of the 2014 draft out of Alabama.

According to Spotrac, Robinson has made more than $29 million in his playing career. However, he never made a Pro Bowl appearance nor was he an All-Pro selection.

He played 15 games for the Browns during the 2019 season and started 14 of them. He was fined in Week 2 for kicking Tennessee Titans’ Kenny Vaccaro.
