Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 28-year-old Robinson (6’2”, 200) is entering his fifth season in the Arena Football League, and spent each of the past three years with the South Division rival New Orleans VooDoo. Robinson saw action in 14 games during the 2014 season, finishing third on his team with 52.0 total tackles (44 solo) and seven pass breakups.

Before heading to New Orleans, Robinson pulled down five interceptions with the Cleveland Gladiators as a rookie in 2011.
