$9,957,000.

Seems like a lot of money, doesn't it?

Most people would be happy earning it in one year.

Not Dunta Robinson.

It's not the money that's the issue; rather, it's the reason why he is making that money this season.

"...I was told I wouldn't get (franchise) tagged," said Robinson back in February. "That's dishonest, and I'm mad about it."

It's now July, and as preseason nears, Dunta's anger still has not subsided. 

It's time to end it.

Both sides need to compromise and make a deal before the preseason starts.

Both sides have said the right things, Robinson saying that he wants to retire a Houston Texan, and the Texans saying that they didn't want to apply the franchise tag, but felt they had to.

Enough of the "he said, they said" business.

The only business that needs to be done is getting Dunta Robinson on the field, while providing tranquility for the team and satisfaction for Robinson.

A way to provide that? Give Robinson some money.

Of course, not $9,957,000. Give him more years, and less money.

Even he has said that's what he wants.

So, c'mon Houston.

End Dunta's Inferno with a heavenly solution.
