NFL free agency is a month away, and that means teams in need of cap space will be cutting veteran players over the next few weeks. The Atlanta Falcons cut veteran cornerback Asante Samuel earlier this week, and now the Kansas City Chiefs have cut CB Dunta Robinson:
Chiefs announce they’ve released veteran CB Dunta Robinson. His number for 2014 was $5.1M … KC saves over $3M in cap dollars.

The team will save about $3 million in 2014 with the move. Robinson, who had lost his starting job, had a cap number of $5.3 million in 2014 and $5.7 million in 2015. He finished with just 13 tackles and four pass deflections over eight games (two starts).
Robinson, who will turn 32 in April, now becomes an unrestricted free agent who is free to sign with any team immediately, rather than having to wait until the March 11 start to free agency.
Robinson has played in 139 games in 10 NFL seasons, and his career numbers include 593 tackles, 17 interceptions and 91 pass breakups.
