Professional careerEdit

Detroit LionsEdit

Robinson was drafted by the Detroit Lions with the last pick of the 2007 NFL Draft (255th overall), earning him the title of Mr. Irrelevant. On June 29, 2007, Robinson signed a three-year contract with the Lions. However, on September 1, 2007, he was cut by the Lions and assigned to the practice squad where he wore jersey #38. He was promoted to the active roster due to injuries to other players at his position for the Lions' week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he notched two tackles on special teams. However, the next week the Lions signed another cornerback and Robinson was again demoted to the practice squad.[4] Robinson was again activated to the 53-man roster and given a jersey for the team's week 13 game on December 2.

Robinson taunted Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones after an incomplete pass thrown by Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers during the third quarter of their December 28, 2008 game. He danced around and pointed at Jones after the fourth-and-10 play, resulting in a 15-yard dead-ball penalty against Detroit. This is the same game in which the Lions' made history as the first NFL team to go winless in the modern 16-game regular season, which started in 1977. His behavior garnered harsh criticism from the media.[5][6][7]

On September 6, 2009, the Lions released Robinson.
