Chiefs sign Dunta Robinson to 3 year deal

It’s still unclear what sort of free agency chatter we’re going to be subject to this weekend, but we can offer you this: TheKansas City Chiefs have landed a cornerback.’s Albert Breer reports that Dunta Robinson has reached an agreement with the Chiefs on a three-year deal, according to a source close to the player. The former Atlanta Falcons defensive back was released by the Falcons earlier this month in a cap-saving move that slashed $9 million off the books. The Falcons also got rid of a largely disappointing performer.

Robinson — cut three years into the six-year, $57 million deal he signed in 2010 — struggled in coverage last season and figures as more of a nickel defender for the Chiefs. He remains consistent against the run and could be worked into the mix at safety.

Robinson turns 31 in April, but the Chiefs, at least, have landed a relatively durable player. He started 46 of a possible 48 games for the Falcons after making 79 starts for the Houston Texans during his six-year run in Houston.

Andy Reid likes importing veteran players, and we’ve already seen that happen at quarterback. The Chiefs, for all their warts, have some talent on defense. Robinson isn’t going to save the day, but he’s part of the plan for a new regime in Kansas City working aggressively to rethink the roster on both sides of the ball.
