Chiefs Confirm Dunta Robinson Signing

It might seem like old news now but the Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed that the team has signed former Atlanta Falcons CB Dunta Robinson.


The Kansas City Chiefs added depth in the secondary, signing cornerback Dunta Robinson, the team announced today.

Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton’s 3-4 defense relies heavily upon strong secondary play, including blanket coverage by the corners.

Regardless of where Robinson is placed, Chiefs secondary coach Emmitt Thomas and defensive assistant/secondary coach Al Harris will ensure it’s the best possible position for both Robinson and the Chiefs to succeed.

The 5’10 cornerback, Smith joins the Chiefs, after a three-year stay with the Atlanta Falcons, which followed six years with the team that drafted him 10th overall in 2004, the Houston Texans.

There has been some speculation that Robinson might be moved to safety, as rumors persist that the Chiefs are seeking a deal with former Miami Dolphins CB Sean Smith.

Regardless of where KC places Robinson, the Chiefs’ secondary is stronger today than it was in 2012 and that is a win for the fans.

Do you guys want Robinson to play outside corner, nickel corner or safety?

    I think I’d prefer him at safety but, it’s a little hard to know for sure until I get a better idea of the style of defense Sutton will run.

  • Tyler Alexander

    Signing Avery probably means he’ll play #2 corner

    God it’s a great day to be a Chiefs fan!!! I just want to know what the heck is going on in the office up there; no one seems to be able to come to Kansas City without signing… Chris Canty is going to regret not coming here, mark my words… name a year in recent memory we have made this many big ticket moves this early. I’m so freakin excited, start the damn season now!

    He is great at being a sneaky blitzer. With him and Arenas as blitzers and more LB blitzing from DJ I can see much better pass defense this year!!

    Nickel corner for Robinson and if we sign Sean Smith put him at #2 corner. Think about it! Sean Smith, Berry and flowers with Robinson coming in on the nickel! Payton Manning wouldn’t know what to do!

  • Priest4Prez

    Patrick, speaking of CB, any word on Sean Smith?

    • jason king

      Smith made a statement basically saying he will be playing for the chiefs this season!

    Dunta does make the 2013 secondary stronger. My hope is that he moves to Safety. What the Chiefs really need is another corner who is as good or better than Flowers. If the Chiefs can locate and sign a true #1 CB, everything about the pass protection improves, especially the pass rushers. An extra second of coverage goes a long long way for guys like Houston and Hali. By signing or drafting a stellar #1 CB and being able to move Robinson to Safety… even Eric Berry gets better. Can you imagine an Eric Berry getting better? Nice image if your a Chiefs fan.
