The Atlanta Falcons have until the 5th day of the league year, March 17th, to make a decision on cornerback Dunta Robinson.
On that day, $3 Million of his $8 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed if he's still a Falcon, reports Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com.
Robinson is on the books in 2013 to count for $9 million against the salary cap.
If Atlanta releases him, that's about $6 million freed up, but they'll need to play their cards right with this decision.
The team can't afford to lose both Robinson and Brent Grimes, who'll be an unrestricted free agent in March. They'll need one of them on the roster come September. The only other cornerbacks of note are Asante Samuel and backup Robert McClain.
