Chiefs sign former Raiders cornerback Routt

(Reuters) - The Kansas City Chiefs signed free agent cornerback Stanford Routt, the National Football League (NFL) team said on Monday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but a report on the NFL’s website said the former Oakland Raider received a three-year contract worth $19.6 million.

“He’s a talented player that has spent seven seasons in the AFC West, so he is familiar with us and our division opponents,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said in a statement.

Routt, 28, started 15 games for the Raiders last season, making four interceptions, but was recently released.
