Unhappy CB Robinson Missing From the First Day of Camp

Pro Football Weekly talks about CB Dunta Robinson not showing up at Texans camp:

Texans CB Dunta Robinson, unhappy with being given the franchise tag in the offseason, skipped the first day of training camp on Friday.

“As far as Dunta goes, I did not expect him to be here after what we’ve been through and where we are at,” head coach Gary Kubiak told reporters. “But I’m not going to judge. I’m going to let him and his representation handle their situation. We’re going to work as a football team. We’d love to have him here.”

Texans GM Rick Smith drew a slightly harder line on Robinson’s situation.

“I think Dunta needs to be in camp, and that’s my opinion,” he told the media. “I think he needs to be here with his teammates and when he’s coming in, that’s a decision he’s going to have to make.”

Robinson, 27, is one of the key members of the Texans’ defense. He played 11 games last season, starting six, after making a remarkable recovery from serious knee and hamstring injuries suffered in 2007.

With the window to sign franchise players to contract extensions having closed on July 15, Robinson’s only options are to sign the one-year, $9.9 million tender offer the Texans have extended to him or to sit out. Per the CBA, he will be fined for each day he misses of training camp.
