Perhaps the Miami Dolphins don’t believe their corner situation is as dire as much of the league does.

Because Josh Robinson, who visited the team over the week, is the latest veteran free agent who won’t be joining their defensive backfield.

Robinson, who played his high school ball at Plantation, signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, the Bucs announced.

The terms were not immediately available. But whatever they were, the Dolphins presumably didn’t offer enough to beat it.

The Dolphins have yet to sign a veteran free agent corner. They traded for Byron Maxwell last week, but many around football believe they need at least one, if not two more.

The team does still have interest in Nolan Carroll, who played for Miami from 2010-2013, but more and more it appears that the Dolphins will be looking toward the draft for starting-caliber help at that position.

Meanwhile, Miami continues to shop around for help at defensive end. Veteran Chris Clemons is in Davie Monday for a visit. He completed his meeting with the Dolphins without a signed contract.
