Texans put franchise tag on CB Robinson

Cornerbacks are prized commodities, and the Houston Texans are taking a step not to lose theirs.

Unable to negotiate a long-term deal with their free-agent-to-be cornerback, the Texans are designating Dunta Robinson their franchise player.

The franchise cornerback tag will be worth $9.957 million, but it will restrict Robinson’s ability to find a new team.

The two sides had been hoping to finalize a long-term contract but when they couldn’t, Houston made the decision to tag Robinson.
