Robinson was more than steady; he also brought big-play ability to the defense.
According to Ian Rapoport from NFL Network, Philadelphia Eagles slot corner is heading back to New Orleans to play for the Saints. In 2015, they let Robinson go in free agency, following several years of uneven production. The deal is reportedly worth $40 million over five years.
Peterson, 30, was coming off his best National Football League season, matching career highs in interceptions (four) and passes defended (18).
The Saints' defense experienced a quick turnaround last season. Already signing safetyKurt Coleman from the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans adds another experienced member to its vastly-improved secondary that already features Pro Bowler Marshon Lattimore and respectable contributors Ken Crawley, Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell.

Initial reports suggested, a motorbike was used in the blast, he said, adding that it could have been the act of a suicide bomber. In April, six people including army personnel were killed in a suicide attack on a census team on Bedian Road.
Originally a first-round pick by the Saints in the 2010 NFL Draft, Robinson bounced around between the Colts and Chargers over the last few years.
All of those players are under contract and younger than 25.
The Saints and free agent CB Patrick Robinson are reuniting.
The questions now is whether any of them can cover slot receivers as reliably as Robinson.
