New York Giants bring in DT A’Shawn Robinson for a visit, according to report

As the 2023 off-season began, New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen was clear that the Giants needed to improve their running defense and defensive line depth — two things that seemingly go hand in hand.

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Giants may be about to take another step towards doing just that. Rapoport reports veteran defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson scheduled to visit the Giants on Monday.

The Giants have already added off-ball linebacker Bobby Okereke and run-stop 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 in the second round by the Detroit Lions 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 on the Pro Football Focus list of the top 100 remaining free agents.

Robinson suffered a torn meniscus in 2022 and played in just 10 games. He played 93 regular season games with 63 starts and was involved in seven playoff games.

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

With only a career-high 7.0 sacks, Robinson would not add much to the domestic passing rush. However, he would add more of the quality of depth and run the defense the Giants seem to be aggressively seeking.
