Texans will not franchise CB Dunta Robinson

There might not be much available in the way of defensive tackles on the free agent market, but teams looking for cornerbacks have several opportunities to get into a bidding war and overspend.

The news out of Houston today is that the Texans will not use the franchise tag for CB Dunta Robinson. Though he did start all 16 games this year, his stats won't exactly wow anyone, especially the goose egg in the INT column...not that INTs are everything. Robinson and Patriots CB Leigh Bodden, who had 5 INTs, are the top names at CB in free agency. Tackle Box ran down the Rams offseason CB situation to kickoff his "Being Billy Devaney" series.

The good news for the Rams at CB is that Bradley Fletcher is recovering nicely from his brutal leg injury. No word yet as to when he'll be back at full speed, but reports have made it sound like he should be ready to go for training camp. If Fletcher's injury hasn't taken away from the very real progress he showed last season when he earned a starting job, CB won't be as big of a priority for the Rams, especially if they get a pass rusher somehow.
