Done deal for Dunta
The Falcons went after free agent cornerback Dunta Robinson early and never looked back.
As a reward for the persistence (and deep pockets), Atlanta has landed the top cornerback in the 2010 free agent class.
The six-year veteran has agreed to a six-year deal with the Falcons, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The total value of the deal is not yet known.
The 5’10”, 184-pound Robinson will now be charged with the task of helping the Falcons turn around a pass defense that ranked 28th in the NFL in 2009 (241.9 yds/gm).
In 16 starts for the Houston Texans last season, Robinson recorded 64 tackles (54 solo). However, he was held without an interception all season for the first time in his career.
