After Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson shredded his knee during the ninth game of the 2007 season, many league observers believed that he was done.
Robinson returned to play last season, appearing in 11 games and starting six of them.
And now that his rookie contract has expired, Robinson is regarded by many as the top corner in free agency. (All cornerbacks to hit the market are right here.)
[UPDATE: Obviously, Nnamdi Asomugha is the best corner in free agency, but the Raiders are expected to use the exclusive level of the franchise tag on him, which will prevent him from testing the waters.]
That perception could prompt the Texans to use the franchise tag on Robinson, which would require the team to tender to Robinson a one-year deal worth $9.957 million.
For a quick tour of the big names at each of the various positions in free agency, here’s a little PFTV.
