Houston, TX (AP) - The Houston Texans have signed cornerback Dunta Robinson. Robinson, who was selected by the Texans with the 10th overall pick in
the April draft, is the sixth of the Texans' nine 2004 draft picks to sign with the team.
The Texans have now signed both of their first-round draft picks, the other being linebacker Jason Babin (27th overall).
"There are a lot of different levels of elation I'm feeling right now," Robinson said. "I'm happy to be a Texan, I'm excited to be going to training
camp and I'm relieved to have my contract settled. This is a great day for my family and I. Now it's time to go to work."
Robinson, 5'10" and 186 pounds, was South Carolina's Most Valuable Player in 2003 after recording a career-high 50 tackles, one interception and 12
passes defensed. He is the highest-drafted South Carolina player since Sterling Sharpe was taken seventh overall by Green Bay in 1988.
