As we learned on Wednesday, Patrick Robinson is leaving the Philadelphia Eagles to sign with the New Orleans Saints. Upon his departure, the former Eagles cornerback posted a goodbye message on his official Instagram account.
Philly it’s been good! Thank you to the Eagles organization for giving me the opportunity to share this amazing season with my teammates. Special thanks to all of my teammates who turned into brothers, our hard work and dedication was not in vain. We came, we saw and we conquered! Super Bowl Champions!!! Thank you to all of the fans who showed me so much love and support and continue to show support !! I’m grateful for this new chapter in my life.
It’s really remarkable how Robinson came to Philly last year on a minimum contract, mightily struggled in training camp, almost got cut, and then somehow went on to be arguably the best slot corner in the NFL. He was just another one of those underdogs that made the 2017 Eagles so special.
Thanks for everything, P-Rob. You’ll forever be a hero in this town.
