Rumor: Pro Football Talk Expects to See Routt as a Chief as Early as Today

Per a report from Pro Football Talk’s (PFT) Mike Florio, former Raiders’ cornerback Stanford Routt should finalize his decision on a team today, and PFT speculates that team could be the Kansas City Chiefs. Routt, drafted in the second round of the 2005 NFL draft from the University of Houston, had played his entire career with the Raiders. After signing a 5-year $54.5M contract, Routt was released after just one year into the contract, after a disappointing season in which he led the NFL in pass interference penalties. Routt’s signing would make sense for the Chiefs if they expect to lose Brandon Carr in free agency, as they would also gain a cornerback as well as a former player of a division rival. Routt’s seven-year career numbers are not impressive, managing just ten total interceptions and two sacks over that period.

**Author note: Routt has signed a 3-year, $19M deal with Chiefs February 20, 2012.
