As expected, former Giants defensive tackle Fred Robbins has come to terms to join the St. Louis Rams, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Robbins’ deal with the Rams is for three-years, and is potentially worth $12 million.
The signing of Robbins marks another former Giant joining Rams head coach, and former Giants defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo in St. Louis. While there has been speculation that the Rams may be shoring up their defensive line in anticipation of passing one of the draft’s premier defensive lineman, either Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy, and drafting quarterback Sam Bradford instead, such talk is certainly premature. The 33-year old Robbins figures to be little more than a stop-gap for the Rams, and could just as easily be coming in to St. Louis to act as a mentor to either Suh or McCoy rather than as a replacement.
