Greg Robinson has re-signed with the Cleveland Browns on a one-year deal, according to NFL's Ian Rapoport.

The 2014 second-overall pick finds himself on his third team in three years; a run in which he has earned a sub-60.0 PFF grade in all three seasons. Penalties have been one of the most prominent gripes concerning Robinson, and rightfully so, as he is one of only two offensive tackles with double-digit penalties with less than ten games played.

Stepping in for the retired, sure-fire Hall of Famer Joe Thomas, Robinson saw game action in nine games this season (498 snaps) and earned a 59.6 season grade. However, the Auburn-alumnus earned a career-high 68.7 pass-blocking grade in 2018, which ranked 56th among tackles.

Although Robinson struggled in 2018, he was part of an offensive line that earned the fourth-ranked pass-blocking efficiency mark (88.5), which greatly aided the early development of rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield. In the end, the Browns will keep their tight-knit offensive line unit together while they allow 25-year-old tackle Desmond Harrison to develop following a pedestrian rookie season.
