Default Dunta Robinson IS BACK

Cornerback Dunta Robinson will report to the Texans for a physical and conditioning tests and could be on the practice field Sunday morning.

"I've been working hard, and I知 ready to go," Robinson said. "I don稚 know what they値l have me do tomorrow, but I think they will mostly look to see where I知 at physically.

"But I'll be on the field for the next practice."

If he passes the physical, Robinson's first practice is likely to be Tuesday. The Texans, who finished the preseason at Tampa on Friday, are scheduled for a workout Sunday morning and will be off on Monday.

Robinson, a free agent designated a franchise player by the team, and the Texans were unable to come to an agreement on a long-term deal. He will now sign a one-year contract for $9.957 million, which is the average of the top five cornerback salaries in the NFL.

Robinson held out hope that the Texans would agree not to place the franchise tag on him again next season, but the organization would not agree to do so.

"There is no ill will on either side," Robinson said. "They did what they thought was best for them and I did what I thought was best for me. When two sides don't come to an agreement, that's business, and just business. Now it's time to move on and go win football games."

I'm sure missing that first paycheck had a lot to do with it.

This all boils down to Dunta didn't want to risk injury in camp/preseason since he isn't guranteed anything other than this year's pay, he held out as long as he could to avoid injury but did not want hold out beyond that and be docked pay.

No ill will? I tried to hold the franchise hostage and they called my bluff and so I screwed the team all preseason hoping they would cave. Hope no one thinks I am a money grubbing piece of shit like I truly am.

Pfft what ever.

And will take 4 or 5 weeks to get up to game speed and into game shape, all the while playing and getting burnt and stinking up the locker room with this bad attitude.......

Not excited at all.

Sign and trade is still a possibility through October 20. If he doesn't embarrass himself, it could be the best scenario

I am not happy about the situation either, I don't if I am as unhappy as you but I pretty ticked at him too. Just was trying to say what I think the ulterior motive is, which is $

You guys are hilarious.

As soon as he makes a play you're gonna love him. I can assure you, you are Texans fans, more than Dunta hatemongers.

I'm sure you'll relish in his failure if he fails. Wouldn't you rather be wrong and have him succeed at the benefit of the Texans? I'm sure you would.

I will admit , right now I wish we could trade him.. odds are he isn't going to be with this team next season, might as well get something out of it (I doubt any team will trade for him, esp with that contract )

... BUT if we don't and when he is here for the full season .. I have no problem I will cheer and curse him just like I will with every other player on this team on sunday afternoon

I am a realist, nothing more nothing less. I love the Texans and will cheer if and when he makes a good play but that does not mean I like him as a person.

He has hurt the team all the while saying he was a team guy. He is full of shit and can kiss my hairy white ass, because I know who and what he is.

I'd rate the fans are a nine on a scale of ten pissed at Dunta and poisoned by his attitude. Sorry, nobody's perfect.

On the same scale I'd say the players are at about a one at being affected by his "stinking up the locker room with a bad attitude". I would say zero, but these things are usually on a 1-10 basis.

The players were far more on Dunta's side than the front office. I don't think they take it as personally as the fans. I doubt the front office and coaches do either, for that matter.

That is so true.



You never know with people Drob might show up in the best shape of his life. He is basically in a contract year so he might surprise everybody.
