Chiefs cut Dunta Robinson

duntarobinson AP

Dunta Robinson is done in Kansas City.

Robinson, the veteran cornerback who signed a three-year, $13.7 million contract with the Chiefs last year, has been released.

The move isn’t a big surprise: Robinson wasn’t the player the Chiefs thought he’d be last season, playing in eight games and starting just two. The move will save about $3 million on the Chiefs’ 2014 salary cap.

Robinson, who will turn 32 in April, now becomes an unrestricted free agent who is free to sign with any team immediately, rather than having to wait until the March 11 start to free agency. Some team might think he has enough left that he’s worth signing, but it’s safe to say no team is going to give him the kind of contract the Chiefs gave him last year.

    Later, dude…

    Vet minimum signing someplace. Cut before the season starts.

    This guy was drafted in front of Roethlisberger.

    Pay Me Rick!

    no one cuts Dunta Robinson and gets away with it

  5. cletusvandam says: Feb 7, 2014 6:14 PM

    This guy was beyond bad in the playoffs.

  6. andrejohnsonforpresident says: Feb 7, 2014 6:14 PM

    Come back to Houston on the low. Then draft clowney.

  7. jbaxt says: Feb 7, 2014 6:18 PM

    Dude was a good guy but could get on the field, probably a decent Nickel backup but that you typically get from your undrafted/late round class.

    The Seahawks need a new “Hydration Engineer”.

  9. gohawks89 says: Feb 7, 2014 6:29 PM

    off to the raiders….

  10. slobberknocker says: Feb 7, 2014 6:31 PM

    His photo would indicate he is a 32 year old tired out, winded dude.

  11. toonloonboon says: Feb 7, 2014 6:32 PM

    dunta dun dun!

  12. orivar says: Feb 7, 2014 6:34 PM

    Not surprised, he got beat pretty bad in the playoffs but seems like a good guy. I don’t really wish any player bad and hate to see their career end on being cut so hope he can end his in style

  13. rastaraider says: Feb 7, 2014 6:39 PM

    Raiders need some DBs
    Good #2 or nick corner

  14. wtfpft says: Feb 7, 2014 6:42 PM

    Remember when the chiefs blew a 4 touchdown lead in the playoffs………yeah that was great.

  15. securb2013 says: Feb 7, 2014 6:54 PM

    He will be bench depth for Talib, book it.

  16. justbust says: Feb 7, 2014 7:00 PM

    Any late round rookie would play better than this dude, remember Atlantas last playoff game? He was atrocious most of last year and looked like he wasn’t trying this year. At least he can spear tackle , special teams? I still wouldn’t trust him in that role. Play like you want a job or please don’t steal a young mans roster spot so u can get paid again next year, you will only let down when it counts .

  17. ohiobears says: Feb 7, 2014 7:07 PM

    To the bears. Emery. Tillman now testing the FA waters. He’ll be a bear.

  18. sowcrates says: Feb 7, 2014 7:24 PM

    Hasn’t been a bad player, been a regular starter and contributor most of his career. May not have deserved to go #10 overall, but he absolutely was the 1st/2nd best CB in that draft (depends on your feelings about Deangelo Hall)

  19. sfraider says: Feb 7, 2014 7:29 PM

    Done-ta

  20. fordmandalay says: Feb 7, 2014 7:37 PM

    Old and slow. Done.

  21. bert1913 says: Feb 7, 2014 7:39 PM

    The Santa Clara 49ers could use a cornerback. After the season dunta can enjoy some d-league basketball games

    vikesarebest: “If he joins the Vikings, the best franchise in NFL history, he will magically turn into the lovechild of Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman to assist the Vikings in their 19-0 campaign for the ages. Skol!”

  23. phillysports1 says: Feb 7, 2014 8:14 PM

    Cowboys should take a shot … Lol

  24. haytammy says: Feb 7, 2014 8:18 PM

    Def couldn’t be worse than what Washington has right now. Maybe move him to FS?

  25. 6ringofsteel says: Feb 7, 2014 8:39 PM

    The great, almighty Steelers organization would defiantly not sign a player that has been released by a lowly organization like the Kansas City Chiefs.

  26. gron4u says: Feb 7, 2014 8:52 PM

    The Steeler could use him at Left Tackle

  27. vikes89allday says: Feb 7, 2014 9:10 PM

    Vikings need defense anybody would be an upgrade now even if he don’t make the final roster see what he’s got at least

  28. chaddukesthebuttpirate says: Feb 7, 2014 9:22 PM

    Backup for Deangelo Hall?

  29. keltictim says: Feb 7, 2014 9:49 PM

    I could see him providing New England some depth. I like what talib does on the field but 2 years in a row he’s let me down, although not his fault, in the game that counts. I’d like to see some more depth there.

  30. slick50ks says: Feb 7, 2014 10:19 PM

    A money thief like Cassel, except Dunta was actually decent at one time. Too bad it’s been years ago.

  31. jjackwagon says: Feb 7, 2014 10:39 PM

    No surprise, Dunta still talks the talk but can’t walk the walk. Age catches up with us all and at 32 he has lost more than just a step.

  32. chrisk61 says: Feb 7, 2014 11:07 PM

    in 2010 in an eagles-falcons game, kevin kolb threw a floater to desean jackson across the middle and dunta robinson pretty much blew jackson up…

    do any eagles fans remember that one ?

  33. whodey420 says: Feb 7, 2014 11:34 PM

    Man, there’s a painful flashback! (One of many of course back then watching the Bengals draft!) They traded down with the Rams. Rams took Steven Jackson and the Bengals took Chris Perry!!

    Whoops!! :)

  34. natijim235 says: Feb 8, 2014 12:12 AM

    bengals

  35. louhudson23 says: Feb 8, 2014 2:21 AM

    Considering the number of helmets he laid on people over the years,I am afraid his prospects of a functioning brain are very small…..

  36. joetoronto says: Feb 8, 2014 4:06 AM

    “The move isn’t a big surprise: Robinson wasn’t the player the Chiefs thought he’d be last season”

    The Chiefs weren’t the team their fans thought they were either.

    Frauds, all of them.

  37. blogatron2000 says: Feb 8, 2014 6:53 AM

    Looked pretty clear the first time I saw him on the field for the Chiefs that he wasn’t the player the team thought they were getting. No lack of effort. The physical tools just aren’t what they once were.

    Thanks anyway Dunta. Wish you well.

  38. lenbias34pt says: Feb 8, 2014 9:32 AM

    Will Won’t
    Should Shouldn’t

    I don’t care, but
    IF he got his hair cut, shaved and worked out every day for the next 3 months Dunta will make himself one more big pay check.

    Grow smoke and drink in 3 years. The time to conform and make cake is upon u

  39. BED MAN OKC says: Feb 8, 2014 10:00 AM

    Ummmm i think it was Copper who got burned every single game for a 70 yard TD. Wrong guy got cut !

  40. jjackwagon says: Feb 8, 2014 10:32 PM

    Hey Trollonto,

    Your Raiders are exactly what we thought they were, cellar dwellers.

  41. raiderapologist says: Feb 9, 2014 1:39 PM

    4M for two starts? They definitely didn’t get a good return on that investment.

  42. keatonhenry says: Feb 10, 2014 3:33 PM

    Robinson didn’t produce well enough on the field… he was a great leader and an excellent teacher for Marcus Cooper, but his age caught up with him. If he doesn’t get on board with another team, I’d love to have him come back to the Chiefs as a defensive back’s assistant / secondary coach.
