Do Cowboys want to sign Patrick Robinson?

The Dallas Cowboys have done a remarkable job of eschewing marquee names in favor of sensible signings this month.

After landing behemoth run-stuffer Cedric Thornton and productive power back Alfred Morris, the Cowboys seem set to bring on former Saints and Chargers cornerback Patrick Robinson.

Robinson agreed to terms with Dallas last week, per's Todd Archer. However, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport on Tuesday that Robinson is set to visit with the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday. It remains to be seen where the cornerback will land for 2016.

The Rams, Giants, Eagles, Bears and Dolphins were also reported to be interested in the 32nd overall pick in the 2010 draft, who was ranked No. 79 on Around The NFL's list of the Top 99 free agents.

A washout in New Orleans, Robinson was rejuvenated as San Diego's slot corner in 2015, faring well in coverage while holding his own in the running game.

As a versatile cornerback with a first-round pedigree in the prime of his career, Robinson would be a quality addition for a Dallas secondary that has produced more questions than answers in recent seasons.
