Stanford Routt visiting Pittsburgh too

Posted by Josh Alper on December 4, 2012

It’s a good time of the year to be a veteran cornerback looking for work.

Injuries open up opportunities in secondaries and you’re likely to be contacted by teams in playoff contention who don’t want to rely on untested players in the final weeks. Stanford Routt has two such teams on the line right now.

As Darin Gantt noted earlier, Routt is working out for the Texans on Tuesday after Houston lost cornerback Brice McCain for the season on Sunday. With Jonathan Joseph and Alan Ball also ailing, Houston could use some help right now.

So could Pittsburgh. Ike Taylor is going to be out for a while and the Steelers want a look at Routt as well. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Routt will head to Pittsburgh after meeting with the Texans.

If Routt does land with either team, it will continue a strange year for the cornerback. He got dumped by the Raiders and Chiefs while pocketing about $11 million, but could wind up in the playoffs with a team that has more wins than the two teams he used to play for combined.

Need the back-up. Hope he chooses us! But Houston may have the upper hand as McCain is out for the year and Taylor is only out for a few weeks.

Texans sign cornerback Stanford Routt to one-year deal

Posted on December 4, 2012 by John McClain

After losing Brice McCain with a fractured foot and seeing Johnathan Joseph and Alan Ball miss Sunday’s 24-10 victory at Tennessee, the Texans were in the market for another cornerback before they play Monday night at New England.

The Texans worked out heavily criticized veteran Stanford Routt this morning. Then they met with him and interviewed him and have elected to sign him to a one-year, pro-rated deal.

Routt, 29, played at the University of Houston. Oakland selected him in the second round of the 2005 draft after he ran a 4.27 40-yard dash at the scouting combine. He played seven seasons with the Raiders.

Routt (6-2, 195) signed with Kansas City in the offseason. He was so bad with the Chiefs they placed him on waivers on Nov. 5.

Routt has been given perhaps a last chance to show the NFL that he’s coachable and not the problem child he’s been portrayed as. He’ll have to overcome that reputation with the Texans, who are 11-1 with a six-game winning streak.

Today, the Texans have three healthy cornerbacks – Kareem Jackson, Brandon Harris and Roc Carmichael. They’re hoping Joseph and Ball will be healthy enough to play against the Patriots.
