The Kansas City Chiefs released cornerback Dunta Robinson on Friday. Robinson was just one year into a three-year contract he signed in March of 2013. Robinson underperformed during the 2013 season, a year after doing so with the Atlanta Falcons. The Chiefs saved about $3 million in cap space by releasing him. It's likely Robinson will find a new team to ply his trade, but not anywhere near the contract numbers he's been seeing of late. Robinson was benched mid-season.
Here's what else you might have missed from Friday in the NFL:
Jadeveon Clowney believes he should be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Many experts have him going first overall, of course, and Clowney thinks they're in the right. The Houston Texans have the top pick in the draft, and Clowney would certainly fit in, given that he'd be paired with J.J. Watt, one of the top defensive linemen in the NFL.
The game itself was less than competitive and, in fact, one of the top five blowouts in Super Bowl history. But it still drew plenty of viewers, as it was the fifth-highest rated Super Bowl in NFL history, averaging 23.1 million viewers. Pregame rating peaked at 68.4 million viewers from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET. The NFL Network and NFL Digital Media properties -- websites and apps -- all set records, as well.
The Denver Broncos extended Jack Del Rio for another two years. Del Rio is the defensive coordinator and served as interim head coach when John Fox was dealing with health issues this past season. Del Rio was rumored to be considering a move back to the college ranks this offseason, but he's locked up through the 2015 season.
San Diego Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander suffered a major setback in his recovery from a torn ACL. Alexander had another operation on his right knee, which was originally injured back in August. The recovery from said surgery is expected to delay his return to the practice field. He's set to be a free agent this year, heading into his fifth NFL season, and if he's unable to take part in training camps this offseason, his value when he is healthy will truly be up in the air.
