[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs waived CB Stanford Routt today.
Routt was signed to replace Brandon Carr, who signed as a free agent with Dallas, but the level of Routt’s play didn’t match that of Carr. The Chiefs paid $6 million this year to Routt, including $4.2 million in bonuses and a $1.8 million salary.
The longtime member of the Oakland Raiders has struggled mightily in Crennel’s defensive scheme, though. He’s been routinely beaten for long pass plays, including two weeks ago against his former team, and missed last week’s game with what the Chiefs called a hamstring injury.
