Robinson was with the Bucs when they drafted Jameis Winston last spring with the first overall pick and also has spent time in the New England Patriots front office as well.

Earlier this week, the Titans interviewed New York Giants vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross and former Denver Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist on Thursday and also interviewed former Detroit Lions general manaager Martin Mayhew this week.
Kansas City Chiefs director of player personnel Chris Ballard is expected to interview with the Titans on Monday. The team also is expected to grant an interview to its own director of college scouting Blake Beddingfield.

While there have been a number of candidates on the general manager front, the Titans still have yet to interview their first head coaching candidate. That has led to speculation that interim coach Mike Mularkey, who will receive an interview, is likely the frontrunner to retain the job. Per sources, TitanInsider reported that the Titans are looking at the possibility of pairing Mularkey with a young personnel man.
