Dunta goes home to Georgia

Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson, a Georgia native who was picked in the 2004 draft one spot before a guy who went to Georgia recently and found himself in a heap of alleged trouble, is going home.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Robinson and the Falcons have agreed to terms on a six-year deal.

Word emerged Thursday night, via Steve Wyche of, that Robinson would be targeted by the Falcons. And he was.

Robinson made $9.957 million last year as Houston’s franchise player. And his desire for a long-term deal caused him at one point to write the message “pay me rick” on his cleats, a sentiment that Rosenthal, MDS, and I routinely communicate to NBC Sports Digital G.M. Rick Cordella.
