After a week-long free agent tour that began with a visit with the Buffalo Bills, free agent cornerback Stanford Routt has agreed to terms with the Kansas City Chiefs, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported the financials: Routt has a three-year, $20 million deal to stay in the AFC West.
Routt, 28, was released by the Oakland Raiders in February 29, and visited Orchard Park a week ago today. Buffalo has some decisions to make at the top of its cornerback depth chart - chiefly with veteran Terrence McGee - and Routt may have been on the team's radar as an insurance option of sorts.
Still, it's unlikely that the Bills were very close to matching the nearly $7 million annual figure Routt will get playing for Romeo Crennel. We're guessing most Bills fans won't feel too badly about the Bills missing out on Routt once they wrap their minds around that financial figure. The team still, however, has work to do at cornerback, and now have one fewer option to work with.
