I have always liked this kid would love to invite him into Detroit to talk turkey about joining our back end.

He's 30 not over the hill yet I would at least talk with him about a contract because Dunta Robinson CB would be a upgrade on our defense!

Would rather have Houston back if the money is similar, but no harm looking at other options either.

That's the thing, Robinson is probably going to get paid, and I think Houston should be our top priority as far as corners go (given we know he can play in our system). Assuming Houston gets a pay raise--and he will, I'm thinking somewhere int he $4 - $5.5 million per year range--we probably won't have a ton of money left over for signing someone like Robinson.

He's certainly an upgrade over what we have, but he's not a big-time player by any means, even though he's going to get paid like one.

Dunta is a moron and has pretty much never actually been any good. He was vastly overrated after his rookie campaign, and has never done anything worthwhile since then.

The Lions can't afford him and Houston.

I would prefer Houston.

It sounds like the Lions have interest in him from what I've heard. Although, it may be in effort to gain leverage in talks with Houston.

Dunta has been awful every year he's played for ATL. Like, god awful coverage. He is so overrated.

(Might be a silly question) I know this probably wouldn't happen but with all of the CBs getting older and moving to S, would Robinson fit in as a S in Detroit?

His coverage is to spotty.

He has a year or 2 left in the tank, but I wouldn't want the Lions to sign him, would cost too much for what we would get IMO.

Really hope Houston re-signs, he should be the #1 priority.

I think he would do better as a S than a CB for us but he isn't worth the money he will get.

Overrated and expensive. Pass.

Agreed. Age/Price ration is not a good fit here, to hell with the idea

Robinson played well last year. I have no idea where the "awful" meme is coming from.

What? He was probably his worst in his career last year in coverage. QBs had a QBR of 102 throwing at him last year.
