As the 2023 offseason began, it was clear to New York Giants GM Joe Schoen that the Giants needed to improve their run defense and defensive line depth, two things that apparently go hand-in-hand.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Giants could be about to take another step toward doing just that. Rapoport reports that veteran defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson is scheduled to visit the Giants on Monday.

The Giants have already added off-the-ball linebacker Bobby Okereke and defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches in free agency.

Robinson is a 6-foot-4, 330-pound seven-year NFL veteran who turns 28 on Tuesday. Could he give himself a birthday present by signing with the Giants?

Robinson was drafted in the second round by the Detroit Lions in 2016. He spent four seasons with Detroit and the last three with the Los Angeles Rams.

As of Friday, Robinson was ranked 31st on Pro Football Focus’ list of the top 100 remaining free agents.

Robinson suffered a torn meniscus in 2022, appearing in just 10 games. He has played 93 regular season games with 63 starts and has been involved in seven playoff games.
