CB Robinson to test the free agent waters

Cornerback Dunta Robinson is bidding the Texans farewell, declaring himself a free agent. Robinson disclosed his plans Wednesday in e-mail to KRIV-TV of Houston and the Houston Chronicle. The Texans’ first-round draft pick in 2004 out of South Carolina (10th overall) is the team’s career leader in interceptions with 13.

In his e-mail, he wrote that his departure is unsurprising “when you are dealing with a tough business like the NFL.” He thanked Texans management and the city of Houston for their support. In return, general manager Rick Smith expressed appreciation his contributions. Robinson had played under a “franchise player” contract last season that paid him almost $10 million. Smith said the decision not to do so again for 2010 was a tough one.

    it is my opinion that the Texans made a good move in keeping K-Walt on the Offensive end…however, the loss of Robinson on the defensive end is going to hurt on an exponential level. Dunta brought speed, strength and most of all, the ability to provide the opposing offense with a moment of “pause”. I hope the Texans primary focus is on the defensive side of the ball from here on out, Cushing, Williams and Pollard can’t do much with out the proper support. I wish they ran 4-3, im tired of the freakin 3-4, the linebackers they have aren’t fast enough to call for a 3-4.
