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

Posted this in another thread:

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 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.

Default Re: Routt to tryout for HOU **Update** Signed

I've read all the game analysis at PFF for 2012.
He only had one bad game against the Bucs.

His agent claimed that he only had 3 "bad plays" this year.
One of them was in the Bucs game, and it was really just a good throw and a good catch.

I'm going watch that game soon.

Right now, I had his first game agains the Falcons.
He had a good solid game against a very good tandem of receivers.

Step by step with Julio Jones on a deep go route; incompletion

Tackled a receiver, forcing a fumble; ball out of bound however.
7 yd catch.
Not even his responsibility.

14yd TD to Julio Jones on a picked screen.
Illegal pick; the other receiver came straight off the bat to cut down Routt before the ball arrived.
Ex-HC Billick even said that ref missed that call.
It's not poor coverage to begin with.

Good coverage on Rodd White in the red zone; Matt Ryan had to throw the ball away.

31yd catch by Jones on a post route.
Chiefs in Tampa 2 (zone).
Routt jammed receiver for a long time before passing him off.
RB out of the backfield was entering Routt's underneath zone.

The fact that the safety made the tackle 31 yards from the LOS should indicate that he was terrible in his positioning and technique.
What was he doing dropping 32 yards deep and not even pay attention to react to the pass; it was caught about 20 yards from the LOS.

Zero penalty for the game.

Tell you something about the Chiefs' talent evaluation.
