Dunta Robinson Should Be an Atlanta Falcon by Tomorrow Morning

Demondre' WileyContributor IMarch 5, 2010

Long time, no post.

To everyone who has been wondering why I haven't posted an article in the last few months, I have been fairly busy with school, friends, and laziness. But now I'm back and ready to share my opinions.

So let's get to business.

According to ESPN NFC South blogger, Pat Yasinkas, the Atlanta Falcons are currently the front runners in acquiring former Houston Texans star cornerback, Dunta Robinson.

"The Falcons announced a contract extension for Brian Williams earlier Thursday, but he’s not the only cornerback on their minds.

Atlanta appears to be the leader in the race to get former Houston cornerback Dunta Robinson . A deal could be finalized within a few hours. Robinson has other options, but the Falcons have the advantage of geography. Robinson went to college at South Carolina and grew up in Athens, Ga. Indications are that he wants to be close to home.

Landing Robinson would put the Falcons in excellent shape at cornerback, a position where they had some problems after Williams got hurt last season. They also have Chris Houston , Brent Grimes , Chevis Jackson , and Christopher Owens ." -Pat Yasinkas

I will admit that I didn't think the Falcons were going to make a big splash in free agency this year. But GM Thomas Dimitroff proved me wrong.

If this deal really does go through (most likely it will) the Falcons may not touch a cornerback in the draft.

Robinson and Brian Williams will be two solid starters, while Chris Houston or Brent Grimes play nickel. And with Jackson and Owens also on the roster, the Falcons should have their best defensive secondary in years.

Now the Falcons can think about other positions of need in the draft.
