Great athlete.

Worth kicking the tires on for sure.

A healthy Joseph and Jackson will suit me just fine though.

Maybe we get to see Carmichael.

Is this the guy playing for the Raiders?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZLiXA54D6I

I barely remember him from his U of H days.

Let's hope he can make plays. He's certainly young and athletic enough. A lot of talk that he was uninspired playing for a bad Chiefs defense. Perhaps playing on a contender will rejuvenate his play.

Probably the best option among the available street FA's .... definately worth looking into.

The fact that he played well for the Raiders in their man scheme bodes well since the Texans employ a scheme very similar.

Routt signed a three-year, $19.6 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on February 20, 2012. On November 5, 2012, Routt was released by the Chiefs

Didn't we pick up a street FA not too long ago from KC? Worked out pretty well that time if I remember right. I think he was a DB too.

Well, I guess we know who to count on for our weekly block in the back penalty on punt returns if he's signed.

Odds are, there would be a block in the back on a return anyway, and they can only penalize us for one of them.

How can players be coached not to block in the back?

They have to get back on returns to begin with .... and then they have to be taught proper angles and have the discipline and self control to .... make the right play.

Lots of the Texans block in the back penalties this year havent been on "gunners" who beat the return team back .... its been on the other guy's often from the interior. Thats whats so damn frustrating.

Keep the bastard in front of you .... dont hit him if you can read the back of his damn jersey.

Man whats up with this. We get 2 or 3 calls a game. However it seems like they are calling more on everyone now. I called like 5 last night in the WAS/NY game.

My wife is a Giants fan, and I told her everytime there was a hold or a block in the back on returns, she was tripping out.

If I were a ST coach I would tell my Punt Returner, Fair Catch every damn ball period or your fired. Our return average would go up 5 or 6 yards by just fair catching every punt!!!

If I read it correctly, Routt gets $5M and $10M this year frm the Raiders and Chiefs, respectively.

If he agrees to a cheap contract to go home, I think it will be a good deal for us.

Routt is one of Al Davis' speed/size draft picks.
From what I read (from one of the coaches or Gm - can't recall), the Raiders always sent film into the league for review.

Nearly half of those penalties were deemed "not a penalty".

8 of those were the 5yd variety.
