The Lions acquire former second overall offense tackle Greg Robinson from the Rams



In an effort to offset the recovery time for Taylor Decker the Lions have acquired former second overall draft pick in 2014 Greg Robinson from the Rams for a 2018 sixth rounder according to Adam Schefter.

Obviously compelled to bring in someone given Decker who at a worse case scenario could be lost until the first week of December, the Lions bring in a guy who was compelling in college but simply hasn’t found that magic in the NFL.

After signing a fully guaranteed, four-year, $21.28 million rookie contract in 2014, Robinson has had his struggles. In 2016 he showed up to camp 14-15 pounds overweight before being penalized 12 times during the first 10 games of the 2016 season.

In 2017, Robinson became expendable for the Rams after signing tackle Andrew Whitworth and guard Rob Havenstein. Los Angeles also announced that they would not pick up the option on Robinson’s contract making him a free agent at the end of the 2017 season.

To make room on the roster the Lions waived LS Jimmy Landes and T Arturo Uzdavinis.
