OT Robinson traded to Lions

(ALLEN PARK) – The Detroit Lions spent the past few weeks searching for an in-house option to play left tackle in Taylor Decker's absence. Now they have made significant moves from the outside. The Lions traded for Rams offensive tackle Greg Robinson and signed Cyrus Kouandjio on Thursday morning, bringing in two more players to compete for the team's open left tackle position after Decker had right shoulder surgery last week. Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014, had been demoted in Los Angeles. A source says the Lions sent the Rams a 2018 sixth-round selection in return for Robinson. The 24 year old has played in 44 career games with the Rams, starting 40 of them. Los Angeles had tried moving him to guard and right tackle before eventually deciding to trade him to Detroit with one year left on his rookie contract. Caldwell said he isn't worried about Robinson's struggles with the Rams and that he believes he fits well in Detroit. Robinosn says the trade "was a big surprise," but one that will benefit him, saying his time with the Rams "haven't really went the way I would like." Kouandjio, 23, was signed by the Lions after being released by the Buffalo Bills last month.
