Chiefs sign cornerback Dunta Robinson to three-year deal
Kansas City, KS, United States (4E Sports) – Cornerback Dunta Robinson, cut by the Atlanta Falcons earlier this month, got out of unemployment line after he signed a three-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Terms of the deal were not immediately released.
Robinson was released by the Falcons in a cap-saving move that slashed $9 million off the books.
The Falcons released Robinson after a disappointing performance last season, his third year after signing a six-year, $57 million deal in 2010.
The 31-year-old Robinson, selected by Houston with the 10th overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, picked off 13 passes for the Texans in six seasons.
The Falcons made him the centerpiece of their secondary with that huge deal in March of 2010, but he intercepted just four passes in three years for Atlanta.
Robinson’s signing is the latest in a series of moves for new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey.
The Chiefs also re-signed receiver Dwayne Bowe and Dustin Colquitt, placed the franchise tag on offensive tackle Branden Albert, traded for quarterback Alex Smith, and re-structured the contract of defensive lineman Tyson Jackson.
