AFC West: Chiefs Waive CB Stanford Routt

The Stanford Routt project in Kansas City didn’t last long. Routt signed a 3-year, $19.6 million contract in February to join the Chiefs and now has been waived by the team to make room for Shaun Smith. I guess that will fix all the problems that they have in KC. I wonder what the KC fans are thinking of their GM for this move.

Routt played well as an Oakland Raider before signing on with the Chiefs. He has struggled with the Chiefs, BUT you would think that they give him more of a chance to prove himself. Maybe Routt can catch on with another AFC West team. Denver and San Diego both could use some corner help. I wouldn’t mind having more corners on this team.

Last season we took advantage of Kansas City’s hasty decisions by picking up Jared Gaither. Maybe we can find another gem in Routt.

    Considering its a move we should probably make, we’re probably not going to do it.

    GET HIM TODAY…. PLEASE?!!! Cason is an obvious weak link. As long as we get him at a decent price, he couldn’t be any worse than Cason… I think : /
    Plus, he has played on two of the 3 teams in our division. That HAS to count for something. Might get some useful info out of him.
