Report: Texans Cornerback Dunta Robinson to Become Unrestricted Free Agent

Houston's 2009 franchise player, cornerback Dunta Robinson, has been informed that the Texans won't be assigning the franchise tag on him for another season and will not be negotiating a contract with him, a source told the Houston Chronicle. 

Robinson made $9.957 million last season as Houston's franchise player but will become an unrestricted free agent come March 5.

The six-year veteran made 64 tackles last season including seven against the Patriots in Houston's 34-27 regular-season finale. The 27-year-old South Carolina alum turned down a $23 million multiyear deal prior to being offered the franchise tag. 

The 5-foot-10, 184-pounder has made 397 total tackles to go with 13 interceptions in 84 career games since entering the league as the 10th overall pick in the 2004 draft.
