For a couple of years now fans have been wondering when the New York Giants were going to part ways with the unproductive "JPP of tight ends." They have apparently finally done so, with a report indicating they are cutting 2012 fourth-round pick Adrien Robinson.
Here's a minor surprise: The Giants have cut TE Adrien Robinson (4th round, 2012), the famous "JPP of tight ends".— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoNYDN) September 5, 2015
General manager Jerry Reese stuck that unfortunate and oft-repeated moniker on Robinson when he was selected out of Cincinnati in the 2012 NFL Draft. Robinson, however, never came close to living up to the hype. In three seasons, he played in only 19 games and caught just five passes -- all of those receptions coming in 2014.
We will find out soon enough, but perhaps the release of Robinson means that impressive second-year tight end Jerome Cunningham, who spent most of last season on the practice squad, will make the 53-man roster.
