Professional playing career

After graduating, Robinson was selected 20th overall in the 2001 MLS SuperDraft by San Jose Earthquakes. He saw very little playing time in the Quakes backline during his rookie year, appearing in only one game. However, in 2002 he was a fixture on the backline, due to injuries suffered by Earthquakes defenders Troy Dayak and Jeff Agoos. Robinson proved to be quite effective in set pieces due to his large vertical leap.

Robinson won two MLS Cups with the Earthquakes, in 2001 and 2003, but struggled greatly to stay healthy. Right hamstring problems limited him to 13 games in 2003, and he missed most of the 2004 season due to a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring. He became a starter in 2005.

The San Jose franchise moved to Houston for the 2006 season and became Houston Dynamo. Robinson remained with the club through the 2011 season, winning both the 2006 MLS Cup and 2007 MLS Cup along the way. At the end of the 2011 season, the club declined his 2012 contract option and he entered the 2011 MLS Re-Entry Draft. Robinson was not selected in the draft and became a free agent. He announced his retirement at the age of 33 on January 11, 2012.

Beginning in the fall [of 2011], Robinson will also take over as head coach of the Dynamo U-16 squad."
