Since Robinson was brought in during the 2010 offseason, he’s been anything but a shutdown corner.
I’m sure the Falcons would love to cut bait and move on from Robinson, but the problem is that Robinson will make a base salary of $6 million for the 2012 season. Of the $6 million he’s set to make, $5 million of it is guaranteed. If you add in his signing bonus pro-ration, so it would cost the Falcons $7.75 million to keep him and $6.75 million to cut him.
In the end it’s not worth it to cut Robinson. They would be just throwing away money if they moved on from him, so for now he’s just an overpaid cornerback.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
