Falcons head coach Mike Smith described Dunta Robinson's play as "solid" when asked Thursday about the performance of Atlanta's starting right cornerback. The description wasn't exactly flattering. The Falcons seemed to believe they were getting more than a solid player when Robinson signed a six-year deal that included $25.5 million in guaranteed money before the 2010 season. They certainly paid him like a corner who was better than solid. Robinson has provided a veteran presence in a young secondary since arriving in Atlanta, but the team's 28th-ranked pass defense has been a disappointment. In the 20 games, including playoffs, in which Robinson has played for the team, he has only one interception and has yet to force a fumble. He's been credited with nine pass breakups — the same number he had in 16 games with the Texans the season before he signed with the Falcons. Our sources sense that the Falcons aren't completely pleased with their investment in him.
