The Buffalo Bills have added another player to the roster, just one day before heading to training camp at St. John Fisher College on Wednesday.

The team announced the signing of linebacker Keenan Robinson on Tuesday, bringing in the roster to the max-limit of 90 players.

Robinson is a five-year veteran of the league, spending time with the Washington Redskins and, most recently, the New York Giants. The 29-year-old has played in 58 career games in the league, amassing 298 combined tackles, 15 passes defended, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions.

Last season in New York, Robinson had 32 combined tackles and two passes defended in just six games before heading to injured reserve with a quad injury.

The Bills continue to put an emphasis on “position flexibility.” New LB Keenan Robinson can and has played both MLB and OLB. Also a very good athlete. He was a top long and triple-jumper in HS in Texas.

Robinson (6' 3" and 245-pounds) was a fourth round pick of the Redskins back in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Texas.

The Bills only have one player left to be signed before the start of the season. That player is 2018 first round quarterback, Josh Allen.
