Could Falcons Cut CB Dunta Robinson?

    Last year's franchise player Brent Grimes is headed for unrestricted free agency after tearing his Achilles tendon and safety William Moore is also a free agent after a terrific season. The team have two high-priced veteran cornerbacks in Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson, but it's worth wondering if both players will be back.

    As noted by Pat Yasinskas of, Robinson is due $3 million on the fifth day of the new league year in mid-March and $8 million total, which is a lot for a good-not-great starter. Robinson is a good tackler but not the guy that the Falcons expected in pass coverage.

    If the Falcons can get Grimes under contract, they could feel better about letting Robinson go or could also look to renegotiate his contract if he was amenable to a pay cut.

    I love the way D Rob hits guys and he is average at pass coverage. I'm curious if they will take the chance with Grimes or stick with Robinson

    They could probably use the Grimes injury to their advantage in the contract negotiations and try to get him on an incentive based deal...

    we would take him in a heart beat. Help show other teammates how to tackle. Rather have a corner that will tackle after the receiver catches the ball than have the corner miss the tackle. I say if he is released then sign him up.
