Is Dunta Robinson Headed To Tampa Bay?

March 4th, 2010

It’s mere minutes until the NFL free agency period begins and a former Bucs beat writer is one of the few people in the Fourth Estate who believes the Bucs will make a splash. columnist Don Banks is of the believe that Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson will be headed to Tampa Bay shortly to join the Bucs.

Where he will sign: Tampa Bay —The Bucs clearly won’t break the bank for the former Texans franchise player, but if Robinson’s market turns out to be soft and the price tag is reasonable, the Bucs could target him and land a youthful (27) but experienced option (six-year veteran) to replace the aging Ronde Barber, who turns 35 in April. Other teams expected to shop in the cornerback market this offseason include the Falcons, Vikings, Titans and Packers.

This wouldn’t be a bad move, but it sounds like a peculiar move. The Bucs, specifically Mark Dominik, have stated they are not going to be players in free agency. While it’s true the Bucs will need to replace Barber, he’s still going to be with the Bucs for the 2010 season.

There are much bigger holes on the defense that need to be addressed for this fall. Cornerback isn’t one of them.

This season.

    Other than Barber being the coach’s mentor on the field… why is old man Barber still with Tampa and their youth movement?

    I feel like cornerback DOES need to be addressed this season. We have no depth!

    Any given day, Talib might violate his probation and go primal on someone. Ronde usually has been healthy but he’s long in the tooth now so all bets are off. Elbert Mack looks like he has a ceiling of average at best. Tori Cox just got released today. So beyond those 3, who do we have?

    The bucs won’t sign robinson and it looks like they might miss out on marshall cuz the the pats are said to be interested in him!

    sech, I’d be surprised if they even sign a draft pick, much less a free agent.

    Looks like robinson might go to the falcons it wouldn’t suprize me he is from athens,ga !

  7. Greg Says:

    Zech, is saying Robinson is very close to a deal with the falcons

    It makes perfect sense to me . Then you could move Ronde to the nickel and into the slot , where he is best suited at this stage in his career.
