The New York Giants have reportedly agreed to terms with rookie tight end, Adrien Robinson (via NY Daily News).
Giants general manager Jerry Reese has referred to the former Cincinnati Bearcats tight end as the Jason Pierre Paul of tight ends. Reese said
"We really think this guy has a huge upside," Reese said after the draft. "He is a big, big man (with) long arms. He didn't catch a lot of balls for them, but he is kind of a late bloomer who has really come on.
"We think this guy is kind of a JPP of tight ends. We like these kind of people. We're excited about him. We think he can really come on and develop and be a terrific football player for us."
When Reese says that Robinson (who was taken 127th overall) didn't make many catches for the Bearcats, he is hardly understating the point. In four years at Cincinnati, Robinson made 29 receptions for 434 yards and five touchdowns. Robinson does have plenty of size (6-foot-4, 264) and opportunity going into training camp with all of the injuries New York has had at the position.
Robinson is the first of the Giants' 2012 NFL Draft picks to agree to a contract.
