Police say that Robinson was stopped for a traffic violation when officers found large bags of marijuana in his car, totaling a reported 25 pounds.
The Giants drafted Robinson out of the University of Cincinnati in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. At the time, Robinson was almost purely a blocking tight end who was a raw project as a receiver. The Giants hoped that his eye-popping athletic numbers would eventually translate into a height/weight/speed match-up problem for defenses.
He did little with the team and was never able to capitalize on his impressive athleticism, notching just five receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown in his Giants’ career. He was waived in the final cut-down before the 2015 season.
Most recently, Robinson was signed to a futures deal with the New York Jets in early 2016 before being released in May of that year.
Police say that Robinson has been released on bail.
