  • According to, Detroit Lions offensive tackle Greg Robinson has been removed from the NFI (non-football injury) list just in time for the start of training camp. Robinson was added to the list less than 24 hours before the Lions first practice of this year’s camp. Robinson was acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams back in June and is expected to fill in as the starter for injured left tackle Taylor Decker.
  • Robinson, who was the second overall pick in 2014, has been a big disappointment so far in his career. In 2016 his 43.0 overall grade ranked 70th among offensive tackles, his 35.0 run block grade ranked 76th, and his 50.0 pass block grade ranked 59th.
  • Despite the Lions making big upgrades to the offensive line this offseason on the right side, the combo of Robinson at left tackle and Graham Glasgow at left-guard (39.1 overall) will likely be the lowest graded left side in the NFL on paper, at least until Taylor Decker returns mid-season.
