Houston Texans will reportedly sign Stanford Routt

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The former Chiefs cornerback was a free agent for a few weeks before signing with the Texans.

The story has a happy ending after all for Stanford Routt. Jason La Canfora has the breaking news that the Houston Texans are signing Stanford Routt to a deal after the cornerback sat in free agency for a few weeks after his release from the Kansas CIty Chiefs.

The Chiefs released Routt after 8 games in a surprise move intended to shake up the team and rid them of a supposedly selfish player. The Chiefs signed Routt in the offseason to shore up the position in case Brandon Carr left via free agency, which he did to the Dallas Cowboys in a mega-deal worth $50 million.

Routt came to the Chiefs on a three-year deal after playing for the Oakland Raiders for his entire NFL career. The Texans are now his third team.

The 29-year-old cornerback has 19 tackles and 2 interceptions in 7 games this season. He has 12 interceptions in his NFL career.
