Stanford Routt Will Decide On The Kansas City Chiefs In The Next Few Days

The Kansas City Chiefs have been in talks with former Oakland Raiders cornerback Stanford Routt over the past week, as Routt was released from his deal with the Raiders after the Oakland brass balked on paying Routt a $5 million guarantee going into the 2012 season.

Routt has been in discussions with the Bills and Bengals along with Kansas City. Per reports, other teams have apparently shown interest. There are some that believe that if Routt is signed, it could mean the end of Brandon Carr's tenure with the club.

The Raiders had re-signed Routt to a three-year, $31.5 million contract back on February 24, 2011. The contract included a guaranteed $20 million over the first two years of the deal. Routt started 15 games for the Raiders in 2011 and recorded four interceptions.
