Zac Robinson Signed To Cincinnati Bengals Practice Squad

Quarterback Zac Robinson didn't have a very good chance of making the Detroit Lions 53-man roster with Matthew Stafford, Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton all in front of him on the depth chart, so it's no surprise he was let go during the final round of roster cuts.

The hope all along amongst fans was that the Lions would be able to bring Robinson back as a member of the practice squad. Him being signed to another team's 53-man roster was a legitimate concern, but I didn't think he would land on another team's practice squad. That's exactly what has happened, though.

It's not clear if Robinson was offered a spot on the Lions practice squad, but I have to imagine he was. Chances are he chose Cincinnati instead because the Bengals have only two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster (Andy Dalton and Bruce Gradkowski). This means he likely has a better chance of making it to the 53-man roster in Cincinnati than he would have had in Detroit. This was likely a case of the path of least resistance being to sign with the Bengals.
