KC Chiefs: Chiefs release defensive back Dunta Robinson

The KC Chiefs are starting their offseason in earnest, and it seems like they are already in the process of cleaning house for the 2014 NFL season.

Terez A. Taylor of the Kansas City Star reported via Twitter earlier today that the KC Chiefs have parted ways with 31-year-old defensive back Dunta Robinson, taking his $5.1 million salary off the books, yet only dropping the Chiefs' cap number by $3 million.

The 10-year veteran has spent 2010-12 with the Atlanta Falcons, starting 47 out of 48 regular season contests. With the KC Chiefs this season, Dunta Robinson played in just nine games, starting in just two.

Robinson was on and off the Chiefs' injury report this season for "personal reasons," and the last straw for Chiefs' management seemed to be his struggles to contain Indianapolis Colts wide receiver TY Hilton in the KC Chiefs' heartbreaking 45-44 Wild Card round loss.

In his short time with the KC Chiefs, Robinson recorded just 14 tackles with no turnovers forced. He did recover one fumble.
