Robinson has only been an NFL player for three years, previously playing for the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.

His arrest comes just days after the father of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was arrested for drunken driving a week after his son's fourth Super Bowl appearance.

Patrick Mahomes Sr., 53, was arrested Saturday night in Texas by the Tyler Police Department on at least his third DWI.

He was held in the Smith County Jail on a $10,000 bond. The 6-foot-2 former professional baseball pitcher slept in jail overnight and was released on bail on Sunday.

“I can't go into it too much, but I mean he's fine no matter what the situation is,” Mahomes Jr. said of his father's arrest on opening night of the Super Bowl.

“It's a family matter, so I'll just keep it for the family.” That's all I'll say at this point.'
