The Oakland Raiders will be rebuilding the majority of their defensive roster this off season. Among the many whose contracts will be expiring this off season are corner backs Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins. Considering the fact that the Raiders secondary was, well, horrific in 2013, general manager Reggie McKenzie would be wise to check out any and all possibilities to upgrade it.
And it appears he has been given an opportunity to start the search for corner backs earlier than expected with news coming that the Chiefs have cut Dunta Robinson.
Eleven months ago @KCChiefs signed Dunta Robinson to 3-year, $13.8M deal with $3M bonus. Released today. Treasure to trash.

You know what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Robinson had a poor year in 2013 and no one is going to be jumping out of their shoes to sign him. But regardless, the cut by the Chiefs had as much to do with cap space as poor play.
There is a good chance the Raiders do not try to sign Robinson, but Raiders fans should be wary of every option that presents itself since you can be sure McKenzie will be.
