Linebacker Keenan Robinson meets with Buffalo Bills before returning to New York Giants

The four-year vet was a possible candidate for the middle linebacker job.

Over the course of a few hours last night, it was revealed that linebacker Keenan Robinson had visited with the Buffalo Bills before re-signing with his old team, the New York Giants.

Robinson, 27, just finished his first season with the Giants after spending the first three years of his career with the Washington Redskins, who selected the Texas product in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Robinson is a middle linebacker who has range and can cover well, but struggles mightily against the run. Pro Football Focus rated him 78th among 87 qualified linebackers, although he placed 33rd in the coverage rankings.

With his return to the Giants, Robinson becomes the fifth Bills target to eventually re-up with the team he played for last season. Jayrone Elliott (Packers), Andre Smith (Bengals), DeShawn Shead (Seahawks), and Travaris Cadet (Saints) also returned to their old teams after stopping at OBD.

Coincidentally, missing out on Reynolds seems to have prompted the Bills to look in the same direction as those teams. It was reported today that Zach Brown will be stopping by Buffalo after a visit to Miami, possibly returning to the team that helped him make his first Pro Bowl last season.
