T.J. played his senior season at Auburn University where he accumulated 15 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss.
"T.J. is a LB that has played with two prominent programs at the FBS level," said Head Coach Kurtiss Riggs. "A very intelligent and athletic LB that we believe will improve our defense from last year."
Robinson (6'4, 230) is entering his first season with the Storm. He played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League (CFL) during the 2018 season. Tyrell played collegiately at the University of Oregon where he finished his senior season with 12 tackles in nine games.
