Re-up or Reject: Bryan Robinson
Bryan Robinson joined the Cardinals before the 2008-09 season as a player who was expected to provide solid depth and veteran leadership.
Three years later he is looking at free agency and the Cardinals have to make a decision.
Re-up: Robinson has been everything the Cardinals expected him to be, and probably more. It’s been difficult for the coaches to take him out of the lineup, though his impact off the field may be even more important. He helped mentor rookie Dan Williams last season, even saying if the first round pick didn’t take the veteran’s job something will have gone wrong. An attitude like that is great to have around a young team.
Reject: Robinson is 37-years-old and looked every bit of it at times last year. He doesn’t do much more than take up space, which is something Williams should be able to do just as well. Veteran leadership is nice, but the game is about production, and Robinson didn’t do much last season. No reason to think he’s going to rebound next year.
