Robinson signs franchise tender

Buried at the bottom of the press release in which the Texans identify the assorted slapola who have agreed to participate in the team’s practice squad is a far more noteworthy disclosure.

As expected, cornerback Dunta Robinson has, as expected, signed his one-year franchise tender.

This places Robinson under contract, and guarantees that he’ll receive a base salary of $9.957 million this year.

For each regular-season game he had missed, Robinson would have given up more than $585,000 in salary.

He signs the tender with no promise that the team won’t use it on him again next year, when the guaranteed amount of the one-year contract would be more than $11.9 million.

    So how much would it cost someone like him to take out a $15 million dollar insurance policy against a severe injury?
    Just wondering….
