“I love rushing the passer,” Robertson said of his position change. “It’s something I did a lot of in college. At the end of the day, I love playing football in general. It don’t matter if I’m on kickoff, kickoff return, somewhere on the field. I just love being in the game. I love playing.”
“At the end of the day, it’s whatever the coach wants me to do,” Robertson, who is the cousin of left tackle Trent Williams, said. “If I can do it, I’m going to do it 100 percent. Unfortunately, we had some guys go down, which I hate that the most. But it gives me [a chance] to show them what I got, and I can prove to them that I can play outside linebacker and inside linebacker.”
Robertson received reps with the first, second and third teams in 11-on-11 periods during practice. He isn’t sure how long he’ll be at the position. For now, he’s in the outside linebackers meeting room trying to re-learn the position, and the defense, in an expanded role.
“I did pretty good [on Saturday],” Robertson said. “At the end of the day, I’ve got a lot more to learn moving back to outside trying to get comfortable and trying to get back to my natural setting. But I’ve got a lot more to learn and a long way to go. I just gotta keep going 100 percent every single day.”
