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!

    We knew it was coming. Credit Dorsey with letting him go with enough time to find another team he could play for. Also, he seemed a good guy, didn’t bitch about playing time and seemed to be the first guy to congrats the other players when something good happened. I wish him the best;

    Dig the song! Because Robinson was lip syncing throughout the entire season. Just going through the motions. Seemed like a nice guy but he lost a couple of steps for sure

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Makes perfect sense.

    Liked his attitude. Wish him well. Sean Smith should be next. . Was not impressed with his play as well.

    I’m a little happier now. The guy sucked. Probably played his last down in the NFL. Had some great moments though. At one point the dude was probably feared by some slot receivers out there. Oh and is it just me or where they lip syncing the whole time in the video? It’s the rains fault guys.
