According to a report, the New York Giants will bring DT A’Shawn Robinson for a visit

When the 2023 Offseason began, New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen was clear that the Giants needed to improve their defense and defensive line depth – two things that seem to go hand in hand.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Giants may be taking another step toward doing just that. Rapoport reports that veteran defensive end A’Shawn Robinson is scheduled to visit the Giants on Monday.

The Giants have already added outside linebacker Bobby Okereke and defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches in free agency.

Robinson is a 6-foot-4, 330-pound seven-year NFL veteran who turns 28 on Tuesday. Could he give himself a birthday present by signing with the Giants.

Robinson was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the second round in 2016. He spent four seasons with Detroit and the last three with the Los Angeles Rams.

As of Friday, Robinson was ranked No. 31 among the top 100 remaining free agents by Pro Football Focus.

Robinson tore his meniscus in 2022 and appeared in just 10 games. He has played in 93 regular season games with 63 starts and has appeared in seven playoff games.

Rams Wire said Robinson had “three somewhat miserable years” in Los Angeles. Robinson missed eight games in 2020 and seven last season.

With just 7.0 career sacks, Robinson wouldn’t add much to the interior pass rush. However, he would add quality depth and defense that the Giants are aggressively looking for.
