    Former Raider, Chief and UH cornerback Stanford Routt will get a tryout with the Texans tomorrow.

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

    Posted this in another thread:

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

    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."

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
