With Quarterback Alex Smith officially expected to arrive in Kansas City on Tuesday, he’ll be coming to the heartland with a new teammate as the team came to terms late Friday night with former Atlanta Falcons cornerback, Dunta Robinson.
Once NFL teams began talking with agents at 12:01 am this morning a flurry of behind the scenes deals began the long journey to the opening bell of free agency on Tuesday. But with teams trying to get near the projected salary cap, they’ve been cutting players left and right. And the Chiefs found one of those players in
On Tuesday, the Chiefs are planning on bringing in numerous free agents, but they jumped the gun and signed a position of need. But he might not be the only cornerback the Chiefs sign.
