An hour before the deadline for legal tampering, we have a deal that could have been done a week ago.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Chiefs have agreed to a three-year deal with former Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson.

Robinson was able to deal now since he was released by the Falcons, whereas unrestricted free agents whose agents can be dealt with tonight have to wait until Tuesday.

It’s probably smart for Robinson to get a deal in now, with veteran cornerbacks moving away from jobs faster than toward them Friday.

It also continues an aggressive offseason for the Chiefs, who have to wait until Tuesday for their Alex Smith deal to be finalized, but have re-signed wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and franchised left tackle Branden Albert.
