Default PFT - Robinson & Texans still far apart.

Quote:
Robinson, Texans still far apart
Posted by Mike Florio on July 8, 2009 10:39 PM
Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson believed earlier this year that, absent a new contract, the team wouldn't use the franchise tag to keep him in place.

So when the team indeed used the franchise tag to keep him in place, Dunta wasn't happy.

As a result, he hasn't signed his one-year, $.9.957 million tender, and so he remains not under contract.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network (via our semi-sister site Rotoworld.com) reports that the Texans and Robinson remain far apart in contract talks.

And that's significant now because, as of July 15, the Texans and Robinson will be relegated to a one-year deal only.

The July 15 deadline applies to all franchise players. After that date, there can be no multi-year deals.

For Robinson, our guess is that he'll continue to refrain for signing the tender, and that he'll skip training camp and the preseason, showing up on the eve of Week One and still pocketing the full amount of his one-year pay.

The only risk? If the Texans decide that they're comfortable with the corners they have, the Texans might decide to rescind the tender, saving the $9.957 million and making Robinson an unrestricted free agent months after the big money stopped flowing.

What's sad is he is complaining about $10mil for one year with the way the economy is going....

What's sad is he turned down a contract similar to that of Chris Gamble and believes he is a Pro Bowl corner even though he has never been invited to a Pro Bowl. Sad is right...

I am currently reading "Descartes' Bones". When I'm done, I may break down and read "Discourse on the Method of Rightly Conducting One's Reason and Of Seeking Truth in the Sciences" (Rene Descartes 1637).

Threads like this one make interesting case studies.

Nice. Of course I don't know what it means. I only cogito in English (with a smattering of Latin).

I've stated it before, but I am not a fan of Dunta anymore, and I do not want him on the Texans.

I wish we could trade him to the Detroit Lions.

Dunta will probably end up signing the franchise tag tender sometime during preseason. He will then test the UFA waters next offseason and no longer be a Texan.

Right now some sort of sign and trade deal would be our best bet. If we could get an early 2nd rounder or more, you would have to consider a deal. you would only be missing out on 1 year of Dunta.

La Canfora has been on the job with the NFL Network for one month after being the Redskins beat writer for the Washington Post. I doubt anyone is suddenly whispering numbers on Dunta's contract negotiations in his ear (or by extension McClain really does suck as the Texans' writer).

Florio should know better as well on his no long term deal comment. If July 15th passes, no long term deal can be signed until the end of the regular season. That gives the Texans three months of exclusive negotiating rights prior to the opening of free agency.

But isn't the problem that he's not ours to trade?

Honestly I just want us to retract the offer, use those 10 mil on our other players, to lock up Demeco and OD...
