Chiefs sign cornerback Dunta Robinson to remain active in free agency

Also reportedly ink WR Donnie Avery

KANSAS CITY, Mo - The Chiefs announced Wednesday they have signed longtime NFL cornerback Dunta Robinson.

Robinson played in Atlanta the past three seasons and with Houston the six years prior.

He's started 126 of his 131 NFL games, piling up 580 career tackles, 5.5 sacks, 17 interceptions (1 returned for TD) and 87 pass break ups.

Robinson was the 10th-overall pick of the Texans in the 2004 NFL draft after playing at South Carolina.

The Chiefs also scheduled a news conference Wednesday to introduce quarterback Alex Smith, who was acquired in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers as free agency opened on Tuesday.

The Chiefs are overhauling a team that went 2-14 last season, and will have the No. 1 pick in the draft.

They've signed wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt to long-term deals, franchised left tackle Branden Albert, and agreed to contracts with free-agent tight end Anthony Fasano, defensive tackle Mike DeVito and backup quarterback Chase Daniel.

ESPN's Adam Schefter also reports the Chiefs have come to an agreement with free agent WR Donnie Avery.
