Biggs: Reports linking Dunta to Falcons
Dunta Robinson might have a short stay on the open market.
Reports continue to surface that the Houston Texans cornerback is ticketed for Atlanta, where the Falcons have been so starved for help at the position the past two seasons that they have plucked starters off the street just before the start of the season.
Although Robinson is coming off a subpar season following a lengthy holdout when he was upset over the franchise tag, he is considered the best cornerback available. Steve Wyche of the NFL Network reported that “all indications” are Robinson will land with the Falcons, who earlier in the day re-signed veteran cornerback Brian Williams to a one-year contract.
We’ll see if Robinson is wearing a black Falcons helmet by, say, the morning. And we’ll hold out hope they go back to the red helmets, which are much cooler.
