2012 NFL Free Agency: Stanford Routt Agrees to Terms with Chiefs

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Stanford Routt has reached an agreement with the Kansas City Chiefs. PFT is reporting that the deal is for $20 million over 3 years. It was reported right after Routt was released by the Oakland Raiders that he was going to visit the Titans, but that visit never happened.

Obviously the Titans don't really have a need for Routt, especially at that number, if Cortland Finnegan is still on the team. While it still looks likely that Finny will be out the door, Jim Wyatt tweeted earlier today that the two sides are talking.

This also probably means that Brandon Carr of the Chiefs is going to hit the open market. He will command a lot of money, so he is not someone the Titans will probably target, but it does mean the free agent pool at corner is going to be a little bit deeper. That could help the Titans if they are going to target a second-tier guy.
