Dunta Robinson gets $25.5 million guaranteed

The numbers are out on Dunta Robinson's new contract with the Atlanta Falcons, and the numbers are big.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Robinson's contract is a six-year, $57 million deal, with $25.5 guaranteed.
It's impressive that a contract of that magnitude was able to be finalized on the very first day of free agency, and we're sure that there was absolutely no impermissible contact between the Falcons and Robinson's agent before the first day of free agency, even though it was reported even before free agency started that the Falcons were likely to sign Robinson.
Last year Robinson made $9.957 million as the Texans' franchise player, but he was unhappy with the lack of a long-term deal. He can't be unhappy with the deal he got on Friday.
That's a lot of coin for Robinson.
