It will depend on the contract.

I wonder when we will find out all the details.

I actually like Brandon Harris from what I've seen. Is normally tight in coverage and he's physical which is something McCain is not.

I'm a Brandon Harris fan.

Just playing the devil's advocate here...

But stats could be misleading here. Do burn rates account for pass interference calls? I could never be burned if I just tackle the wide receiver once he ran past me every time.

When I have some time, I will look into these things.

I don't know how many penalties he got in 2010, but I know it was less than 2010.

I don't want to jump to any conclusion to soon.

Very good signing given the circumstances. You aren't getting another JJo in week 13 looking at street FA, but the guy has speed to burn and if Vance Joseph can take Kareem Jackson and turn him into one of the better #2 CB's in the league, maybe he can turn Routt's career around too.

I think a lot of it depends on Routt. If he's a problem child he won't be here long. If he takes coaching, works hard, keeps a good attitude, and is a good locker room guy, he could thrive here and actually be an upgrade long-term. Interesting signing with very little downside risk.

Kudos again to SmiPhilliak!

If you google NFL cornerback rankings 2010 or 2011, two articles will appear.

One from Football Outsider for 2010; it rated him very highly (but I don't think they take into account penalties)

For 2011, there's one from PFF;
He doesn't appear on the goodie list nor the baddie list.
I guess we can assume that he's an OK CB.

Obviously, these are just numbers.

Routt has all the athleticism to be an excellent DB. The questions are how well and how quickly he will listen to Vance and Wade. Good signing.

All we need for him is to be a rental for the play-off drive; an insurance policy to our current injuries, really.

Interesting to note that Routt was also worked by the Texans out shortly after his release by KC back in November.

Rick Smith has always said he has these regularly scheduled workouts throughout the season just to keep tabs on who's available.

Hopefully, it pays off this time.

Hypothetical question - how will you feel if Routt sees the field soon and ahead of Brandon Harris?

I can't see that happening, but if it did then I would personally hope the decision was based on game experience and would hope it worked.

But I think Harris will get his opprotunity to succeed/fail.

What we need is for him to understand where he's at, why he's here, & that this is an opportunity for him to get back to where he wants to be.

Sounds like he's been cut by two of the worse teams in the league in as many years. His stock is down. He can earn himself another fat contract over the next 9 weeks.

I like our corners, from Jjo to Roc. But if Routte was once a $20M player all he has to do is accept the coaching he's about to get and be a team player. He'll get his opportunity to show the talent is still there.

All he really needs to do now, is prove that he wasn't the problem at his other stops. We're desperate, sort of. But he's obviously Texans Worthy.

Agree. Added much needed depth considering the injuries, and what's available at this point in the season. Depth with experience. If the staff can coach him up into something more, then bonus.

I see Routt more as an insurance, he will most likely be playing special teams to keep the likes of Harris, Carmichael more fresh. It's also to are benefit to have more quality DB's to see those 4 reciever sets that we will see in the playoffs.

Stanford can really come in and help us if he gets back to Oakland form. We play a good amount of man coverage and him playing man can help our D Line and visa versa.. I like the pick up simply because of raw talent alone but I hope he can adapt.. quickly

Hopefully getting cut by bad teams has humbled him a bit.

I think Stanford got cut by the Raiders due to high priced contract. At KC, hopefully he just didn't fit their scheme or is he really that bad (cut by KC)?

Anyway, hopefully things work out for Stanford.

Go Texans!!!
