Falcons CB Dunta Robinson Happy to be Playing in Hometown

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson is happy to be playing for his hometown team, Steve Hummer of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

“Just being home, knowing everything around me, being able to go and see people I grew up with, see my mom and dad on a regular basis — it all has been a dream come true," Robinson said last week.

"I can’t wait to get out on the field and play on Sundays."

Robinson signed a six-year, $57.5 million dollar contract, that included over $22 million dollars in guarantees. The 28-year old Robinson will receive $12 million dollars in the first year of the deal, including a $7 million dollar roster bonus, after earning nearly $10 million dollars with the Houston Texans in 2009.

Hummer adds that real estate agents shouldn't have dollar signs in their eyes when showing homes to the Athens, Georgia native.

"It’s a great time to go house shopping," Robinson said. "I’m looking for the steal, not the deal."
