CORNERBACK ROUTT SIGNED FOR THREE YEARS WITH CHIEFS
Mon, 27 Feb 2012 12:35 PM EST

In an attempt to enhance their man-to-man coverage capability, the Chiefs reached contract with previous Oakland Raiders cornerback Stanford Routt, the team announced. Football scores

Routt will receive $6.5 million in guarantees and will make $11 million this season as a part of a 3-year contract, a resource claimed.

The Raiders released him after the season from a 3-year, $31.5 million contract that paid him $10 million in 2011.

“I have always had plenty of acceptances for Romeo Crennel with his defensive expertise, so the sky is the limit for us. When you look at that, and integrate it with the pieces they have on offense, I do not see why we can’t win,” Routt asserted. Baseball scores

The Titans and Vikings were among the other groups considering Routt, whose specialty is press, man-to-man defense.

“I took visits with Cincinnati, Kansas City and Buffalo, and was in communication with Minnesota, Tennessee, Dallas, Houston and New Orleans. I made my call before taking visits with those teams,” Routt said.

Routt said he didn’t go on any extra visits because “Kansas City seemed like the right fit.”

Routt was lined up to make $5 million had he stayed with the Raiders.

With Routt and Brandon Flowers, the Chiefs have two of the better man-to-man press corners in the AFC. Flowers confirmed a five-year, $52.5 million agreement extension last year. With over $71 million tied up in agreements for 2 cornerbacks, the Chiefs may struggle to keep Brandon Carr, who is an unlimited independent agent.

The Chiefs have paid adequately the past couple of years in the defensive backfield. Safety Eric Berry is also signed to a $60 million, 5-year contract that contains $34 million assured.

Carr, 25 year-old, had a career-high 4 interceptions in 2011. He has started all 64 games in 4 seasons with the Chiefs, making 237 tackles and 8 picks.

“Stanford has an established record of pre-eminence in the NFL,” Crennel, who will serve as his very own defensive coordinator next season. “He’s a talented player that has spent 7 seasons in the AFC West, so he’s acquainted with us and our division adversary.”

The 6-1, 195-pound Routt started 30 games for the Raiders during the last 2 seasons. The 28-year-old cornerback is entering his eighth NFL season.

Routt’s 7-year tenure in Oakland finished as the team heads in a fresh direction under CEO Reggie McKenzie and Coach Dennis Allen.

“My 1st stop in the NFL was wonderful. I hate to look backwards,” Routt said. “I consider that’s an old chapter. It’s time to turn the page. I have confidence in the Kansas City Chiefs to steer us in the proper direction.”

Routt was paid like a No. 1 cornerback but failed to deliver as such last season. He was credited with allowing 8 touchdown passes last season — tied for the second most in the NFL — and led the league with 17 penalties committed. He probably did set career highs with four interceptions and 15 passes defended, however.

NFL free agency starts March 13 but because Routt was released he was able to sign with a team before the open period for transactions begins.
