His contract is for four years and is worth $5.04 million. Robinson will pocket an $849,024 signing bonus. He waited for his opportunity to be Alabama’s starting running back, and he took advantage of his moment in 2021. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder recorded 1,343 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns on 271 carries. Robinson averaged 95.9 yards per game and set a school record for most rushing yards in a bowl game with 204 against Cincinnati in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl. Robinson also proved his skill set as a receiver, catching 35 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns. He helped the Tide to an SEC Championship last year.

Robinson won three SEC titles (2018, 2020, 2021) and two national championships (2017, 2020) in Tuscaloosa.

Ron Rivera, head coach of the Commanders, believes in defense and a strong run game.

We will see how Robinson does in the pros.
