Oh well, kFc getting a head start on signing busts and hasbeens on their way to Dream Team 2.0.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports, citing a source close to the player, that Dunta Robinson has reached an agreement with the Chiefs on a three-year deal. The former Falcons defensive back was released by Atlanta earlier this month in a cap-saving move that slashed $9 million off the books. The Falcons also got rid of a largely disappointing performer.

Nope if you're cut you can sign anywhere at any time.

And they are still going after Sean Smith according to reports.

Looks like Dunta is going to be the nickel.

I expect him to look at alot of options on a position of need. In glad he's not on our team though. We already have a CB that gets burned.

Reports I've seen say they aren't looking to smith now with the dunta signing. I would take milliner over either.

Browns | Might have interest in Britton Colquitt
Fri, 08 Mar 2013 20:50:10 -0800

The Cleveland Browns might have an interest in restricted free-agent P Britton Colquitt (Broncos). He received the original-round tender Friday, March 8, meaning the Browns would not have to surrender a draft pick to sign him.

$12 million is a good deal. He needs someone opposite of him to be the #1.

I have said all along they needed at least 2 CB's among a whole bunch of other positions.

I don't like Robinson...

Someone's doing a terrible job watching film to want Robinson.. We have a great Nickel CB in Harris.. We need a legit outside corner, and preferably a new safety or two.

I'm just going by what I read here.

Quote:
The Kansas City Chiefs made a free agent signing late Friday night when they locked up former Atlanta Falcons CB Dunta Robinson to a three-year contract.

But not only did the Chiefs find themselves a corner that could potentially start opposite CB Brandon Flowers, they also prevented Robinson from lining up opposite Dwayne Bowe.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Robinson met with the Denver Broncos earlier in the day before deciding to sign with the Chiefs.

What's interesting is we might have signed Robinson to play safety.

Any punter who would trade kicking at the Mile High city for Cleveland has rocks in his head.

Rev is a pretty good evaluator of DBs and he's right we need another one.. But I'm with you on this one, I'm scratching my head as to why he likes Robinson. Robinson is terrible.

Yeah I'm honestly surprised that we want another corner. I thought we were good with Champ, Carter, Harris, and Bolden. But I guess you can never have enough corners, but I hope if we do get another CB he's fast enough to check speedy receivers.

He probably was loving him coming out of college and just can't stop the bromance. Just like how PP can do no wrong. That would be my guess.

I would be inclined to agree with the PP part.. But I obviously have a bromance with PM so I would be the last person to cast that stone!

As far as Robinson, hes awful. I'd be curious as to why Rev would want him..?

He certainly won't beat out Flowers, and I have doubts he'll beat Arenas on the outside, but he'll be a solid nickel if they don't throw him at safety.
No he's terrible, he was the biggest liability in their secondary.

Yes he's probably better in some zones or inside.. We need an outside CB, Harris is great inside.

I thought Carter played the outside pretty well in man coverage.

Btw: opposing QBs had the LOWEST QB rating in the league targeting Peterson. And not by a small margin. Will be interesting to see how next season plays out with Revis' return.
I really like PP, but I like Sherman slightly more as a cover corner where we stand today.. But what makes PP so special is not only is he a great cover corner, he's dynamic with the ball in his hands! I also think PP has more upside in the future because of his crazy athleticism. Don't think I don't like him, he's a good player to have a bromance on, as I'm sure you would agree with me having one on PM being justified.

I think Carter was ok. His interceptions were on miss thrown balls. I think his youth and lack of awareness and discipline really show.
