Chiefs released CB Dunta Robinson.
The move saves over $3 million in cap space. Robinson signed a three-year, $13.8 million deal last spring, but saw limited playing time at slot corner and lost his nickel back job to rookie Marcus Cooper. He finished with 13 tackles and four pass deflections over eight games. Robinson, 31, will be limited to one-year offers in free agency. He's eligible to sign elsewhere immediately.

The Kansas City Star expects the Chiefs to release CB Dunta Robinson this offseason.

Robinson signed a three-year contract prior to the season, but saw limited playing time at slot corner and was badly exposed by T.Y. Hilton during the Wild Card loss to the Colts. He's due $3.2 million in base salary.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed Monday that CB Dunta Robinson (personal) will return in Week 3.

Robinson missed Week 2 after his cousin was involved in a car accident. The Chiefs' slot corner between Sean Smith and Brandon Flowers, Robinson didn't hit the stat sheet in the opener, playing 35 percent of Kansas City's defensive snaps.

Chiefs declared CB Dunta Robinson (personal) inactive for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Cowboys.

Robinson's cousin was involved in a car accident this week. Dunta played on just 35 percent of the Week 1 snaps anyway. The rest of the Chiefs inactives: QB Tyler Bray, WR Chad Hall, C/G Eric Kush, DT Jaye Howard, LB Josh Martin and LB Nico Johnson.

Chiefs CB Dunta Robinson is not expected to play in Sunday's Week 2 game against the Cowboys due to a personal matter.

Robinson will miss Sunday's game to be with his cousin, who was involved in a car accident this week. Marcus Cooper is likely to replace Robinson in nickel packages.

Dunta Robinson and Brandon Flowers lined up as the starting corners during Tuesday's minicamp session.

Sean Smith came on with the nickel defense, kicking Flowers inside to the slot. It's an intimidating trio for opposing offenses as all three corners are capable of handling No. 1 wideouts. The physically imposing Smith figures to see more time in the base defense when the Chiefs need to slow down a bigger receiver. Flowers graded out as a top-seven corner last season, per Pro Football Focus.

Coach Andy Reid insists Dunta Robinson will be competing for a starting corner job.

Reid even said that Robinson would be his No. 1 corner if they were going to practice now. This flies in the face of previous speculation that the ex-Falcon would be shifting to safety in Kansas City. No matter how this all shakes out, the Chiefs are going to have one of the better coverage secondaries in the league with Robinson, Brandon Flowers and Sean Smith.

One NFL agent told the Denver Post that the Chiefs indeed plan to use Dunta Robinson at safety.

Robinson signed a three-year, $13.8 million contract with nearly $4 million guaranteed, money befitting a free safety as opposed to a starting corner. A striker in the running game, Robinson has also been an efficient tackling cornerback. The position change would explain Kansas City's continued interest in corners. They still haven't publicly stated Robinson's position.

The Kansas City Star suggests the Chiefs might use Dunta Robinson at safety.

Robinson lacks ideal size -- he's listed at 5-foot-10, 183 -- but that's not too small for a free safety. In 2012, Pro Football Focus graded Robinson as the NFL's No. 4 run-support corner, behind only Antoine Winfield, Chris Harris, and Jason McCourty. The Chiefs could use Robinson on a Ronde Barber-like role, playing free safety on early downs and covering the slot in the nickel.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos had the last crack at CB Dunta Robinson before he signed with the Chiefs

Not surprisingly, the Broncos are looking for a cornerback to play opposite Champ Bailey on the right side. Robinson isn't the ideal candidate to help bolster coverage. According to Pro Football Focus, opponents had the fifth-highest passer rating while throwing in his direction at 102.4. Robinson also allowed the fifth-most yardage to opposing receivers at 835 yards.

Chiefs signed CB Dunta Robinson to a three-year contract.

And so it begins. One hour before the free agency frenzy kicks off with the opening of the legal tampering window, the Chiefs step in and grab Robinson, who was released by the Falcons last Friday. Robinson was routinely beaten in coverage on the outside in Atlanta, but he's always been a sure tackler in the run game. Kansas City could be snatching up Robinson to play slot corner or even free safety next to Eric Berry. He was owed $8 million with the Falcons, but shouldn't get much more than half that from the Chiefs. The Robinson deal should not keep the active Chiefs out of the running for Sean Smith.

Falcons released CB Dunta Robinson.

Robinson's disappointing Atlanta tenure ends three years into a six-year, $57 million deal. Robinson intercepted just four passes in 47 games after coming over from the Texans, and was among the league's more burnable corners in 2011-2012. He was set to make $8 million in 2013, and count $9 million against the cap. A month shy of his 31st birthday, Robinson isn't finished, but should draw more interest as a slot corner than outside starter. He's still one of the better tackling corners in football. A move to safety shouldn't be ruled out.
Fri, Mar 1, 2013 09:09:00 AM

The future of Falcons RCB Dunta Robinson will likely be determined before the fifth day of the new league year.

If our math is correct, that's March 17. It's the date on which $3 million of Robinson's $8 million base salary becomes guaranteed. The Falcons could free up $6 million in salary cap space by releasing Robinson before the 17th of next month. Robinson, 31 in April, is among the league's better tackling cornerbacks but is maddeningly inconsistent in pass coverage.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution mentions RCB Dunta Robinson as a restructure candidate.

SLB Stephen Nicholas and RT Tyson Clabo were also listed. Robinson has an $8 million base salary, and will count a little over $9 million against the cap. Nicholas will earn a meager $2.5 million, while Clabo is due $4.5 million. As it stands right now, the Falcons have only $1.7 million in salary cap space.
Mon, Feb 4, 2013 06:45:00 PM

Falcons CB Dunta Robinson (concussion) and SS William Moore (hamstring) are listed as probable for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Seahawks.

It's no surprise, as both Robinson and Moore were cleared and returned to practice last week. The Falcons are also expected to have DE John Abraham (ankle) available for Sunday's game. Abraham is officially listed as questionable on the injury report.
