Falcons closing in on Robinson

From the start, it looked as if free agent cornerback Dunta Robinson was heading to Atlanta.

Now, it appears as if the race is all but over.

Robinson could sign a long-term contract with the Falcons “within the hour,” according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Widely regarded as the top cornerback in this year’s free agent class, Robinson recorded 64 tackles (54 solo) for the Houston Texans in 2009.

The six-year veteran was drafted by the Texans out of South Carolina in 2004.

Stay tuned.
