    I don't know a lot about his capabilities but he's just been waived by the Chiefs. What really peaked my interest was this from his scouting card:

    If we really are in "all in" mode is he worth looking at?

    Holy crap. That's a huge surprise. If Pioli and Crennel did this I imagine they will communicate to BB why. I'm sure there's a huge buyer beware behind this.

    They waived him to sign DT Shaun Smith to help shore up the depth at DE with Glenn Dorsey's nagging in jury. Waiving a starter who just signed a 3 year ~$20 million contract for a depth guy is a huge tell that this is a bit more than just performance related. And if I recall from Romeo's days in Cleveland, he's pretty tolerant with locker room imbeciles so Routt must have really screwed up.

    He's certainly worth looking at. With a contract as fat as his he's definitely going to pass through the waiver wire.

    Weird. They gave Routt a good deal this offseason (3 years about $20 million) and hyped him as the Brandon Carr replacement. N0w he is cut 8 games later.

    SIGN THE BEAST!

    Routt, Talib and Dennard playing Nickel? One of the worst secondaries to a very good one in the space of a bye week!

    It is probably something very bad that he has done off the field to be cut this early. I think that BB should talk to Pioli and Crennel about him and see whats up and then take him in for a work out if it isn't too bad. But I gotta say, with that contract and cut this early, it seems like it is pretty bad. There gotta be some big red flag behind this. But still, worth taking a look at!

    Talented player, but whatever he did must be really serious in order for him to be cut loose and for RAC to say what he did.

    Heh its kind of bizarre the Chiefs signed him to such a big contract and he doesn't even make it an entire season? It seems awfully fishy to me.

    Maybe he takes drugs, hits teammates and cab drivers, and shoots guns.

    You can say what you want about RAC as a head coach, but he has the rep of being a player's coach - if he says that his "relationship" with Routt was not progressing, to me that = Routt was not coachable. Whereas it seems that Talib is a good football player but makes bad off-field decisions. Not the same situations at all.

    Exactly. If he's a locker room cancer than we shouldn't touch him with a barge pole but if it's something less then...

    What interests me is that he came in to the NFL when Pioli was with the Patriots and I wonder whether signing Routt was a legacy of the Pats draft research at the time. FWIW, Routt had an excellent 3-cone of 6.63 and the fastest 40 time of 4.27.

    Long Arms, 4.2 speed, excellent 3-cone and a press corner. if he was in this years draft, he'd be near the top of my mock for the Pats providing he could play.

    Maybe it's nothing more than that Pioli and Crennel are really bad at their jobs and the Chiefs are a disaster. Or maybe they're actually good at their jobs and they're masterminding a "suck for Geno" strategy.

    Rout stinks.

    Pioli was a fool to let Carr go and sign that Bum when KC is millions under the cap.

    Yeah, having two $50 million plus cornerbacks was definitely the way to go. C'mon....

    Routt is pretty solid cb, maybe all those losses got to him. It's the chiefs anyway, they find a way to lose.

    KC is rumored to be 26 million under the cap and Carr wanted 5 million more.

    Next season they have to spend up the cap anyway so forwarding the 2012 cap savings will do them a lot of good this season when Pioli gets fired after the Chiefs go 4 - 12.

    Stupid, Carr knew the defense and wanted to stay in KC and Pioli pizzed him off.
