Robinson saw time at safety in Monday's practice, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran corner helped to even the numbers at defensive back between corners and safeties during Monday's session, given that the Bucs only kept four true safeties overall. Head coach Dirk Koetter explained the move by emphasizing the need for the team to exercise the maximum amount of roster flexibility. "We have to cross-train guys," said the coach. "Those D-linemen have to play multiple spots, offensive linemen [do as well]. When you just do the math, we kept six corners and four safeties, so usually you're only going to have three safeties up on game day, so traditionally you do train your fifth or sixth corner to play some safety and Josh is one of those guys."

Robinson was dominant in Tuesday's two-minute drill, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The offseason acquisition has had an up-and-down camp, but significantly stood out in the two-minute drill against the second-and-third-team offenses. Robinson recorded interceptions off both Mike Glennon and Ryan Griffin during that portion of practice, while also deflecting a pass during seven-on-seven drills earlier in the session. Robinson continues to compete for a spot at right corner behind starter Alterraun Verner, and is expected to provide quality secondary depth at a minimum in his first Bucs season.

Robinson (undisclosed) was held out of part of practice Saturday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran corner took a seat Saturday with an undisclosed injury, giving rookie Javien Elliott a chance to take second-team reps. Robinson, an offseason acquisition last with the Vikings, is currently behind starter Alterraun Verner and slot corner Vernon Hargeaves on the right cornerback depth chart.

Robinson, an offseason acquistion most recently with the Vikings, practiced on both the second-team defense and special teams in Tuesday's mini-camp session, Joe Kania of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old corner, a rather unheralded but potentially key component of the Bucs' offseason effort to revamp their beleaguered secondary, was seen working with the second-team defense Tuesday. Robinson also took reps as a gunner on the punt team, an area in which he has plenty of experience. The UCF product notably was in on 538 special-teams snaps over the first four years of his career with the Vikings, and the versatility will only serve to enhance his chances of sticking on the final roster come September.

Robinson has agreed to terms with the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson returns to his home state of Florida after four seasons with the Vikings, for whom he totaled 157 tackles and five interceptions. While a pectoral injury limited Robinson to just five games played last year, he joins veteran Brent Grimes as additions to the Buccaneers' secondary this offseason.

Robinson is unlikely to return to the Vikings roster for the 2016 season, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson opened the year on the physically unable to perform list with a torn pectoral muscle and never got his season off the ground, as he appeared in just five games and made only two tackles. He recorded five interceptions, 15 passese defended and 151 tackles from 2012-2014, so there might be enough there for another team to take a chance on him.

Robinson (pectoral) was activated from the PUP list, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Robinson (chest) will return to practice this week, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson has been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of the preseason, so his likely practice status is a good sign for his chances at returning to the field. Still, even if Robinson practices all week it won't guarantee his chances at taking the field Sunday. The Vikings will have a little over three weeks to decide whether they want to remove him from the PUP list, meaning Robinson may have to showcase his talents during practice before he can return to the active roster.

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson was placed on the physically unable to perform list Sunday due to a partially torn pectoral, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Robinson suffered the injury in early June, putting his status for the start of the season in question. The Vikings can activate him from the PUP list at any point during training camp, but if Robinson stays on the list to start the regular season, he will have to miss the first six games. Even if he were healthy, Robinson might find it difficult to earn a significant role after the Vikings upgraded their cornerback depth in the offseason. The team signed veteran cornerback Terence Newman to a one-year, $2.5 million contract in March, and then selected cornerback Trae Waynes out of Michigan State in the first round of the NFL Draft. Waynes and Newman will likely compete for the starting role across from Xavier Rhodes.
