The Eagles acquired linebacker Adrian Robinson from the Pittsburgh Steelers for running back Felix Jones on Friday. The deal was pending the completion of physicals.
Robinson, 23, is a Temple product who went undrafted in 2012. He is 6-foot-1 and 250 pounds and played 12 games with the Steelers last season. A native of Harrisburg, Robinson was a college defensive end who started 38 games for the Owls.
Robinson adds depth to outside linebacker, a position of need for the Eagles. After Connor Barwin, Trent Cole, and Brandon Graham, the team lacks depth at the spot. Chris McCoy, Everette Brown, and Travis Long are the other options. Phillip Hunt was likely lost for the season because of a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament.
