It appears the Green Bay Packers have seen enough of defensive lineman Luther Robinson.
The team reportedly cut Robinson on Monday.
Told the #Packers are going to release Luther Robinson today. Was good story as tryout guy who contributed last year.
That’s a somewhat surprising move, considering Robinson actually played in 2014.
Robinson was an undrafted signee by the Packers just last year. He started the season on the practice squad, before joining the big club in early October.
Overall, Robinson played in five games and recorded two tackles before ending the season on injured reserve. He’ll best be remembered as the guy who deflected the Minnesota Vikings’ pass that Julius Peppers returned 49 yards for a touchdown, last October.
While that does not make a career, the defensive line is the weakest unit on the Packers defense. So, we find it a little curious that they’re getting rid of a guy who may have the potential to contribute so quickly.
Godspeed, Luther Robinson.
