    ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter is reporting on his Twitter page that Atlanta is on verge of trading CB Chris Houston to Detroit for a 2010 sixth-round pick and a switch of draft positions in the fifth round. Schefter adds that the trade between Detroit and Atlanta should be complete Monday. Atlanta no longer had a need for Houston after signing Dunta Robinson who is projected to start along with veteran Brian Williams.

    Wow really? I know he's slipped, but damn. I guess we're going Robinson/Grimes, Robinson/Williams or Robinson/Jackson

    I think he could still get it done opposite a #1 guy. He's not a great corner, but he can stil get the job done with help around him. I guess I was wrong.

    Robinson/Owens? With Williams at safety?

    Rarely does Chris Houston look back and locate the ball. He was burned a LOT last season. If he ever learns how to do do that he'll be good. As for now, this doesn't feel like a loss at all to Atlanta fans, in general.

    Right, with work he could become a solid corner. He gives up big plays a TON though, especially in the pass interference department, because like you said, he doesn't look back.

    I've also seen a rumor where we are getting the fourth and switching fifth rounders. That would be rape in my opinion. I'll be happy if we get any picks for him.
