With the XFL season cut short thanks to the coronavirus, players are free to sign with NFL teams, and the Falcons have not hesitated in adding them. Earlier this week, they brought in tight end Khari Lee. Today, they inked linebacker Edmond Robinson of the Houston Roughnecks.
Robinson had a brief NFL career before joining the XFL. He was originally drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round and spent time with the Cardinals and Jets as recently as 2017. In his career, he played in 22 total games with two starts but only has 13 career tackles. Robinson will have to work his way up the depth chart to make the roster, but with the Falcons being so thin at linebacker, he’s going to have every opportunity to carve out a role.
