Browns great Joe Thomas believes Greg Robinson can be a Pro Bowl left tackle
Cleveland Browns left tackle Greg Robinson was almost considered a bust before coming to Cleveland last night, and future Hall of Famer Joe Thomas believes that Robinson has what it takes to be a Pro Bowler in this league.
Robinson was taken with the second overall pick in the 2014 draft with the Rams but really struggled with them and there were thoughts he was almost on his way out of the league. He caught on with the Browns last year and was ultra-successful and Thomas thinks that new offensive line/associate head coach James Campen can help raise his game even more.
“I got a chance to talk to James in the off-season after he got hired. I’m really excited for what he is going to do with Greg Robinson. Greg played some really good football last year but we all know that he can improve even on what he did last year. With the tutelage of James Campen, I think Greg Robinson can be that Pro Bowl left tackle that the Browns would love,” Thomas said via 247 Sports.
The only reason the Browns claimed him last year when offensive tackle Donald Stephenson made it clear that he was planning on retiring from the NFL. There were some thoughts that he might not even make the roster but he blew away those expectations.
This offseason, Robinson signed a one-year deal worth $9 million to stay with the Browns. If Thomas is right and Robinson can play at a Pro Bowl level, he has many years left in the league.
