Report: Stanford Routt decision nearing

2/20/2012

Former Oakland cornerback Stanford Routt may have a home soon.

According to two league sources, Routt could sign with a team as soon as Monday. The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the teams in the mix for Routt. He visited the Chiefs, along with the Bengals and Bills. There were not any other reported visits. It is feasible that other teams -- the Titans, perhaps -- could still be involved.

If the Chiefs sign Routt, it will be an indication that the team will not re-sign free-agent cornerback Brandon Carr. He will be popular on the free-agent market.

I will be traveling and out of pocket for a few hours later Monday. If the Routt news breaks during that time period, I will have reaction later Monday.
