Kansas City Chiefs Sign Dunta Robinson


The Kansas City Chiefs have decided not to wait until free agency to land a cornerback. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kansas City has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson. Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Robinson was one of the veteran players cut by the Falcons earlier this month to save cap space.

The 30-year-old Robinson signed a six-year, $57 million deal with the Falcons back in 2010. The Falcons cap casualty could turn out to be the Chiefs treasure.

Robinson’s signing comes just before the league’s three-day legal tampering period where teams are able to talk to agents of the players who are set to hit the open market. The Chiefs were linked to a number of free agent cornerbacks, so it will be interesting to see if this signing will stop them from aggressively making a move in free agency.
