The Kansas City Chiefs parted ways with Dunta Robinson Friday after the cornerback spent just one season at Arrowhead.
Brought in back in March to potentially start opposite Brandon Flowers at cornerback, Robinson was a disappointment during his short stay. After first serving as the Chiefs third corner, the veteran eventually lost his job to rookie Marcus Cooper.
As he missed time due to personal reasons and injury, Robinson played in just eight games in 2013. He finished the season with 13 tackles, four passes defensed and one fumble recovery.
Considering the flashes he showed during his time with the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons, it would be a shock if Robinson didn’t find a home somewhere in the league fairly quickly.
With GM John Dorsey looking to find cap space wherever he can, cutting Robinson will free up $3.3 million. That is cash that will be crucial as the team tries to not only sign some of their own 11 free agents, but also poach starters from other teams around the league.
