Kansas City Chiefs Release Dunta Robinson

The Kansas City Chiefs have released cornerback Dunta Robinson, according to a tweet from Terez A. Paylor.

Twitter evidence:

According to Paylor, the move will save the Chiefs $3 million in cap space for the 2014 season. Over the Cap says the exact number is $3,112,500.

Robinson, 31, was a disappointment this season after being signed to a three-year deal last off-season. He appeared in just nine games, starting two, and recorded four passes defended, 14 tackles, and a fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus graded his performance for the season as -5.3 with a -4 grade in coverage. In the playoff game against Indianapolis, PFF graded his performance for the game as -3.6 with a -3.7 coverage grade.

With numbers like that it makes sense why the Chiefs would let him go. The extra $3 million in cap space will be useful to have, too. That said, it appears Robinson was a pretty good guy and will be missed in the locker room.

Kansas City is now estimated to have $3.6 million in cap space.

With Robinson gone, Kansas City now has three listed cornerbacks on the roster: Brandon Flowers, Sean Smith, and Marcus Cooper. Safe to say the Chiefs will be adding another corner at some point this offseason.

UPDATE:

It’s been  along standing tradition here at AA to show a video for a song anytime a major player or coach moves on from the Chiefs. Dunta is no different. So Dunta Robinson, this is for you!
