According to ESPN, the four-year deal includes a $5 million signing bonus, $10 million in guaranteed money and could be worth up to $20 million over the life of the deal.

Robinson was a first-round pick by the Saints in 2010 and played with the team through 2014. After an up-and-down stint in New Orleans, he bounced around to San Diego in 2015, spent one year with the Colts in 2016, and last season with the Eagles. He was perhaps the steal of free agency a year ago. He played all 16 games and recorded a career-high-tying four interceptions to help the Eagles win the Super Bowl. Past year saw Robinson record 45 combined tackles, one sack, 18 defended passes and four interceptions. Robinson came up with a game-changing interception return for a touchdown against the Vikings in the NFC Championship. Now the 30-year-old heads back to a team that revitalized its defense last year and is loading up on reinforcements.

Robinson's arrival provides the Saints depth and a veteran presence among a young cornerback group, which consists of Marshon Lattimore, Ken Crawley, P.J. Williams, Arthur Maulet and Justin Hardee from the 2017 roster.

Robinson has experience playing on both the outside and slot, giving defensive coordinator Dennis Allen more versatility in his secondary. The Eagles will face the Saints on the road this upcoming season.

Well, it looks like Patrick Robinson will head back to the team that he started his career with.
