What the future may hold for every Cleveland Browns free agent
Greg Robinson, Offensive Tackle (UFA)
The Cleveland Browns offensive line was at the root of the problems for the offensive struggles in 2019. With both of Cleveland’s starting tackles struggling to limit pressure, it compounded the issues in Cleveland’s passing offense.
After holding his own during the second half of 2018 at left tackle, the Browns were comfortable with having Greg Robinson protect Baker Mayfield’s blindside in 2019. It was clear early on in the season that the Browns should not have put much faith in Robinson.
Robinson struggled in most of the 14 games he started. The Browns even benched Robinson for two games in the middle of the season after his struggles. Robinson led the Browns offensive line with 11 penalties, while also allowing four sacks, according to Pro Football Focus.
Robinson played well as a run blocker and had some moments while pass blocking. However, his inconsistency was a major issue for the Browns offense and his lack of discipline and penalties would stall several Browns drives.
The Browns will likely address both starting offensive tackle jobs this offseason, so it seems unlikely Robinson will be retained. Cleveland could decide to try to keep Robinson as the third offensive tackle, but he will likely to be paid as a starter or pursue starting jobs around the league.
