Kids has wheels, should help special teams quickly as well.

Yeah. If he's healthy coming off of that hamstring he could contribute down the stretch.

In 15 games, he had 4 interceptions. The Chiefs picked him up and gave him a 20 million dollar 3 year deal this Feb. After missing his last game the end of October, he was released by the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He had already accumulated 2 interceptions. KC's head coach was not specific in the reasons for the move other than saying the "relationship wasn't progressing as quickly and fast as I wanted it to." Sounds like some personality conflicts.

At 29, he sounds like he still has something in the tank........just ended up on the wrong teams. Could be a very interesting pickup. Remember, before Chris Johnson ran a Combine 4.24 40 (2008), Routt held the fastest run at 4.27 (2005)

As I suspected, have since found this explanation on Rotoworld (November 21, 2012) that now makes sense.

Quote:

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, free agent CB Stanford Routt clashed with coaches and missed curfew before being cut by the Chiefs.

Routt was getting torched on the field and not acting professionally off it. He reportedly wanted to use the technique he learned in Oakland instead of adapting to the Chiefs' scheme and Schefter says the coaches there "did not like him." It helps explain why they paid him $6 million to go away two weeks ago.

I can see both sides of this I mean look at Asomugha was consider the best corner in the game as a man to man press defender goes to PHI coaches have him play zone and he is garbage. Thats what I love about Phillips he has players play to their strengths not force them in a system. BTW I am not saying Routt is a Asomugha.

Some more to ponder.

Quote:

Routt cleared waivers after being cut by the Chiefs on Monday. The 29-year-old allowed a dreadful 64.1 completion percentage, 491 yards, and three touchdowns in seven games as Kansas City's right corner this year, according to Pro Football Focus. Quarterbacks had an astronomical 111.9 rating throwing at Routt. Miami lost Richard Marshall (back) to injured reserve, Arizona has employed a rotation opposite Patrick Peterson, and Detroit's secondary has been ravaged by injuries. Routt should be able to find a job before season's end.

I trust Phillips evaluation skills if he thinks he can help Texans.:cowboy1:

David Gibbs came here and completely screwed up the entire secondary under Frank Bush pre-2011. Where did Gibbs come from, prior to his stint with the Texans? The Chiefs.

I promise you guys: The Chiefs are a wasteland for NFL talent.

If Wade sees some things in the guy, things he can use, he'll put him into situations to make him feel like a million bucks again.

Ruud is proof of that. Nobody wanted that guy, but we needed him...got him...and he's been solid for us. Dobbins was a similar castoff we landed just before the 2011 season. Wade knows what's up.

Vance Joseph knows what's up.

I hope he can kick ass and take names if we sign him and he gets to play. Sometimes you just need to know you're playing for COMPETENT coaches, IMO. Then the instincts start to kick in again. You start playing, instead of watching.

He's not very good but if they see enough to actually sign him, then I'll trust that they know what they're doing.

Everyone injured recently is coming back. To sign Route, who are we going to cut?

Grimes maybe?

He'll be behind Roc Carmichael on the depth chart. Not really expected to see the field. Other than special teams.

McCain going on IR I don't think a cut will be needed.

I thought they said he might be ready for the play-offs? They're already closing that door?

Doesn't sound very Texans' like.

McCain, being "IR designated to return," does not count against the 53 man roster.

Its the IR option that he can return in 6 weeks to practice then to game in 8 weeks

IR with option, once we make it to the SB someone will have to be cut, if McCain is fully healthy. Ouch...

Re: Routt to tryout for HOU
 
In 2011 with Oakland Routt's coverage rating (by ProFootballFocus) had him ranked 15/109 CBs who took at least 25% of their team's snaps.

His overall rating was poor, though, due to a league worst penalty rating/ranking: 109/109. I see 17 penalties in 17 games.

Routt is one of Al Davis' speed/size draft picks.
