The Chiefs have decided to release veteran cornerback Dunta Robinson.
Robinson was in the first year of a three-year, $13.7 million deal. The move creates roughly $3.3 million in cap space for Kansas City.
He did not have a productive season for the Chiefs. Robinson finished the year as the 167th highest rated corner on Pro Football Focus, finishing with an overall grade of negative 5.3 in 274 snaps. He made 16 tackles, had no interceptions, and deflected four passes.
Robinson is 31 years old and just finished his tenth season in the league. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him catch on somewhere else for a much cheaper price than the contract the Chiefs originally gave him.
This was an expected move as Robinson’s playing time dwindled in favor of Marcus Cooper. There’s no point in continuing to pay him that much for not playing or producing.
Which Chiefs would be awesome in the Olympics?
