Italy: Bolzano Giants sign ex NFL RB Khiry Robinson

The Bolzano Giants, Italian semifinalists in 2019, have signed ex New Orleans Saint and New York Jets running back Khiry Robinson for the 2020 season.

He had graduated from West Texas A&M, where he played for two seasons and was named to the 2012 All-America team. Robinson finished his NFL career with 788 yards rushing and 178 yard receiving, tallying a total of eight touchdowns.
