METAIRIE, LA (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have signed their first-round draft choice.

Saints spokesman Greg Bensel says Patrick Robinson has agreed to a five-year contract and is expected to report for training camp Friday.

Robinson, a cornerback out of Florida State, was the last of the Saints' six 2010 draft picks to reach a deal.

Robinson, who is 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, will give the Saints another potential nickel back behind their starting cornerback tandem of Tracy Porter and Jabari Greer.
