Default CB Stanford Routt signs with Chiefs

http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/n...stanford-routt

t's not clear if the surprising move is for financial reasons or if Routt did something incur the wrath of the new regime. Routt had restructured his contract last August to five years and $54.5 million, an exorbitant number even for the team's top cover corner.


Pro Football Weekly @ProFootballWkly
Stanford Routt played in all 16 games last year and set career-highs with 15 passes defensed and four interceptions.


Well, here’s the first big surprising move of the offseason.

Oakland released cornerback Stanford Routt on Thursday, less than a year after the team gave him a “five-year, $54.5 million” contract. (It was originally a three-year, $31.5 million deal, then the team restructured the deal.)

Of course, Al Davis was the one who gave Routt that contract in 2011. G.M. Reggie McKenzie has since arrived and clearly doesn’t see Routt as a cornerback worth more than $10 million-per-season.

It’s a surprising move because it was reported last year that Routt’s $5 million 2012 base salary was guaranteed. It’s possible it was only guaranteed if Routt was on the roster past a certain date. (Once again, even “guaranteed” money isn’t always guaranteed.)

Routt started last season well and enjoyed a fine 2010 season, but he struggled badly down the stretch. He got picked on often despite having the tag as Oakland’s top cornerback.

As a 28-year-old with a lot of starting experience, Routt figures to attract plenty of free agent interest. For Routt, free agency starts Friday.

HOLY CRAP! That was a short-lived deal. He is a UoH guy, maybe he's interested in a cheaper deal to play in Houston? I think he would be fine as a #2 CB in our system.

Depending on how much he wants I'd take a look. Kj is serviceable. How will he perform taking all of the #2 reps at corner? I don't know. Will he show expoential growth heading into year 3 as he did going into year 2? Again, I dunno. Rout is intriguing to me though because I think hed definitely be good enough to take all the #2 snaps.

Some tweets about it:

Adam Caplan: Stanford Routt's $5 million base salary was guaranteed if he was still on the roster as of Friday, a source confirmed.

Evan Silva: Stanford Routt can sign immediately because he was cut; contract didn't expire. 28-year-old press CB w/ great speed (4.27), size (6'1/195).

Ranking the top FA CBs: 1) B. Grimes 2) Finnegan 3) B. Carr 4) Routt 5) C. Rogers 6) Terrell Thomas 7) R. Mathis (knee)

I agree with you and plus as we all know speed is not a factor with Routt.

ProFootballFocus.com @ProFootbalFocus
Routt graded reasonably well in coverage, and numbers are OK, but offset a LOT of receiving yardage with penalty yardage. Skews data

RED FLAG

ProFootballFocus.com @ProFootbalFocus
Routt also allowed 9 TDs last season, which is more than any other CB surrendered

ProFootballFocus.com @ProFootbalFocus
Not saying Routt can't play, but he was being vastly overpaid. Can be a reasonable pickup for a team on a more sensible contract.

I like the idea of signing him if there was enough cap space. He would give up a lot less Touchdowns playing with the Texans because of their great pass rush.

How did he rank as a corner when Nnamdi was on the other side of the field?

Any of these would be an upgrade for the Texans.

I don't have my archive Hard drive with me, but I seem to recall him giving up something over 2.00 yards per play in coverage and falling outside of the top 100 in those metrics in 2009(the last year I charted). For comparison Asomuga was giving up something ridiculous like 0.25 YPPIC, and Dunta Robinson, who received a similar contract, was giving up just ~0.8

I was shocked when they gave him a huge contract.

Stanford Routt's agent William Vann McElroy told me, "Stanford already has visits planned with Buffalo and Tennessee."

Evan Silva @evansilva
#Titans quick show of interest in Stanford Routt suggests franchise tagging Cortland Finnegan is not in plans. Finnegan should hit market.

Default Re: Raiders release CB Stanford Routt

This is just yet another in a long line of face palm moments from the Raiders. They signed Nnamdi Asomugha to a deal and then put in a clause that could void the contract which allowed him to leave. They sign Routt, a #2 CB to #1 CB money and then are surprised he doesn't live up to the deal and cut him after 1 season.

Perhaps we should trade them Kareem Jackson and Jason Allen for their 2013 first rounder. After all, Oakland would be getting the better end of the deal since they would be getting 2 first rounders and we would only be getting 1, right?!

I'd like to see him in our D at reasonable incentive base contract. Especially if Oakland picks up any costs? If year one not guaranteed, I believe he is fee to negotiate complete new deal with any team. WIth Joesph next to him and our guys behind him and our front 7.....could be a great pick up.

There are way too many teams who need a starting CB (or two) for that to be a even semi-realistic hope. The Oakland contract will not defray any costs, and what difference does it make if year one's not guaranteed unless you plan on waiving him before it's over?

To clarify my post; if Oakland did pay something on his contract that would reduce first year costs to team signing him, but I said I did no think that was the case. I think Texans would have already set up interview if interested.

That can only be the case in a trade or a waiver claim. Routt is a vet with more than 4 years experience and is not on waivers. He is an unrestricted free agent now who can sign with any team. However, he will get a good chunk of money from the Raiders anyways. 20 million minus whatever he made last year, although that figure is fuzzy at the moment.

Routt has been the bad part of Jason allen more than bad Jason allen has been bad Jason Allen..i.e. he rarely makes up for the awful stuff with the pure ball skills and speed that Allen manages to get away with.

So you agree he could dcide money not main issue and come to Texans wanting to show his worth sort of like Pollard did?

I think he had 4 INTs 2011; maybe our DB coach could help him as he have the rest of our guys?
