Routt, released by the Oakland Raiders on February 9, spent last week visiting three teams on his free agent tour: the Cincinnati Bengals, the Kansas City Chiefs, and of course, your Buffalo Bills. The 29-year-old corner was released when, after a down year, the Raiders weren't willing to fully guarantee the $5 million salary he was scheduled to make in 2012.
Conceivably, the Bills - who have reportedly still been talking to Routt's representation since he departed Orchard Park for his next stop on Monday, February 13 - are still in the hunt for Routt's services. Florio notes that Routt may be having trouble generating high interest in his skills, though with three teams hosting him on a visit, he'll still have options.
Routt does not have to make a decision on his next team until he's ready, as he's free to sign whenever he likes. With apparently lukewarm interest, however, Routt may be ready to take a short-term deal to try to ramp up his value for another free agency run in 2013.
