Chiefs waive Routt; might Raiders be interested

By Steve Corkran
Monday, November 5th, 2012 at 11:50 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Kansas City Chiefs waived veteran cornerback Stanford Routt on Monday, eight games into a long-term contract Routt signed shortly after he was waived by the Raiders.
That begs the question, might the Raiders be interested in re-signing Routt?
Perhaps. We’ll ask coach Dennis Allen that question today during Allen’s weekly news conference. It’s unlikely the Raiders will put in a waiver claim on Routt, given they would be on the hook for a $10 million option bonus in 2013.
If a team claims a waived player, they inherit the player’s contract as it is structured. The way around the option bonus is to renegotiate the contract or accept it as is and deal with it when the time comes.
Given the Raiders get back cornerback Ron Bartell for this Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens and cornerback Shawntae Spencer is making progress in his recovery from a right foot injury, it’s less likely that the Raiders will bite on a player they waived during the offseason.
Still, don’t rule it out with the way the Raiders pass defense performed against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Routt was Oakland’s No. 1 cornerback last season, and he certainly is better than some of the cornerbacks currently on the 53-man roster.

    mctroll20 has no idea what cover 2 zone is…apparently we played press man all yearlast year even after al passed…yeah…dude open the notebook

    _____

    It doesn’t matter , the D was coached to play Man to Man all off-season and training camp , preseason games through 8 games before Al passed away , 1 of them was Bills game, how awesome was that Press Man D , allowing Bills to easily score 30+ points in second half to come back and win the game

    Re-think your opinion Cork if you can sift through the pig manure for brains posting in your comments section out of a lack of life purpose and actually read this.

    Hey, we resemble that. Whats your excuse?

    Do you realize that Palmer and crew scored 22 points in the 4th quarter WITHOUT McFadden!!!

    When your QB puts up 22 points in the 4th quarter and you lose…. BLAME THE DEFENSE!!!!

    dont get mad mctroll20…


    you apparently hang out too much with Beech , I’m not mad if i was i would be giving you your time of the day , but guess who’s really in here worried about me more than the what the blog was intended for

  • Marks hair

    I dont know why knapp still tries to bootleg cp3 on 2 dn.. in scoring range no less.

  • fingers

    I’ve noticed Moore seems to fall / slip a lot….. I thought he had a bad games yesterday as well….I don’t even know where to start on the defense… That was about as bad as it can get…..
    But props to Houston …

  • RockyMountainRaider

    Palmer threw picks, Mcfadden gained next to nothing on the ground, Moore dropping passes, defense gave up miles at a time. Plenty of blame to go around

  • mcfadden20.

    Freeman have 15 TD’s ? only 3 more than Palmer with a legit #1 and #2 WR’s on the team , possible MVP of the year on the team , and only 3 more TD’s than Palmer, how lame Mistic would take him over Palmer , Palmer scored all his points with his ARM , while Freeman handed to possible MVP of the year in tune to 4 rushing TD’s

  • fingers

    666…agree… Horrible defense… And some questionable play calling…

  • Al_is_theraiders

    time of day…lol…classic…what was the score yesterday?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Lol at “palmer isnt the problem” as if 3 boneheaded picks in the second half simlpy didnt happen.

    the final two drive ended in gradkoski esque flutter ball picks.

    this is the 4th game where palmer has had at least 3 picks in 18 games. he also has thrown 3 for pick six.

    Palmer is a dumpster fire tossing the football blindly and looking for a place to hide in the face of a pass rush.

  • Marks hair

    Moore needs more muscles.. too skinny. The wind knocks him off his rts. Thats why he only goes deep..

  • fingers

    107… Agree with that too…. A whole herd of Goats yesterday

    An uber athletic QB would’ve put up at least thirty points in the 4th quarter. Haven’t you seen all the 100 plus points per team games happening this year? Should of been one yesterday with Cam and RGIII. Oh wait, did they even combine for thirty points?

    That was a good call , 2 Raiders receivers were running open in the end zone, but the D had good call for that play , the defender was right up Palmers grill before he could even turn around and set foot to make a throw

  • Just Fire Baby

    This show will be cancelled if we dont win soon, and tp will be ready for his shot

    ***************************

    As I told you from the very beginning of the season

    Terrell Pryor = 16 games inactive

  • Marks hair

    We make alot of guys look like mvps

  • Just Fire Baby

    Myers was wide open on the bootleg, but the D didn’t bite on the run-action, and he booted right into a defender.

  • fingers

    Mark… Agree… Moore might think about adding some bulk….

  • nycraider

    carson palmer ranks 7th in completions. our top wr ranks 56 in receptions. carson palmer ranks 9th in yards our top wr ranks 33 in total yards, imagine if cp3 had legit wrs to work with. btw ,,we would be 1-7 with any raider qb since gannon. palmer and jano are the only 2 players playing well on the team.

  • RockyMountainRaider

    Them damn bootlegs have looked like sh!t all year, teams have no respect for our run this year. Thats just sad.

  • Marks hair

    116. Thats why it was a bad call.. we all saw it comming.. its a krapp special.. and cp3 isnt an escape qb…

    —-

    It’s simple you will throw int’s with bad wide receivers and 60 pass attempts , what part of that you don’t get ? what school did u went to , it’s common sense Mistic , open your eyes and btw Washington is doing a good job ruining Griffin’s career before it even began, pretty soon you would have to pick a new fav qb to follow , i know it’s Freeman now , but he only got 3 more TD’s than Palmerwith MVP player on his team?

    Didn’t Tampa Bay take a knee after the 3rd INT?

    Why do you continue to make crap up?

    This is what you do, you can be part right, but you just take it to such extremes you end up wrong.

    Cam Newton, top 5 QB. RGIII, greatest Redskin ever. Ponder, about to be benched for Joe Webb.

    You don’t know how to quit when your ahead.

  • Marks hair

    Krapp needs to keep adjusting to the players we have.. not the system he likes

  • Raider4Life209

    There were plenty of mistakes on both sides, and not to mention the coaching. You can’t pin it on one guy (*Hint Mistic), or the ZBS, or Al’s guys! Too many mistakes—plain and simple. Some of these guys fantasize about QB’s that don’t throw picks, O-lines that are perfect, corners that shutdown all day every sunday. It’s teams that overcome their mistakes and capitalize on the mistakes made by the other 53 men that wins in the NFL. I just don’t know why some people beat the dead horse week in and week out like it’s gonna change anything. Cry about it all you want—it’s meaningless. Palmer is our QB, and he’s our best option now.

  • fingers

    121… Yep… It’s real clear to me now that the Raiders are short on talent and depth…

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    There is a real Raider blog with real Raider fans who are absolutely holding Palmer accountable and are knowledgeable enough to know how lucky we are to have him. Why don’t you broaden your horizons, Mistic, and gain some insight into tis game you have such a flimsy grasp of?

    LMAO AT Mistic’s new FAV QB, It’s Freeman , who only has 3 more TD’s than Palmer with MVP PLAYER on his team

    Hints? A baseball bat wouldn’t get his attention.

  • Just Fire Baby

    We didn’t hear much about Mistic’s fascination with Freeman when he lost 9 games in a row last year.

  • http://www.insidebayarea.com/raiders Silverandblack666

    Palmer should not have even been throwing on that last drive when he threw his last INT he should have been handing off to a RB killing the clock.

    BUT NO!

    The D was so horrible that it let a rookie RB run through them like they were not even there.

    Palmer did his job he will be here for a long time you better just get used to it!

    Time for you to eat crow no way Palmer goes anywhere next year and no way they put a rookie in even if the season is over.

    Palmer is our QB if you don’t like it go back to the 49er bandwagon!

    Just started now , he gave up on the Newton and Griffin bandwagon , obviously because their record is not as good as Freeman , who has only 3 more TDs than Palmer with MVP RB

    You know NOTHING about football.

    The defense was gassed cuz they were chasing around Doug Martin to the tune of 251 yd’s.

    Last time I checked, Palmer doesn’t play defense.

    You are football stupid.

  • Marks hair

    125. True he makes good points an then goes over top.. i do it too sometimes when im seething with anger and i need to vent about firing knapp out of a cannon into the bay.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Palmer will definitely start another 24 games with the Raiders, at least.

  • fingers

    I like Palmer as a ( our ) Qb… But even if you don’t Like him as a Qb you have to be honest and admitt he’s not this teams biggest reason for losing…

  • RockyMountainRaider

    Dont forget Willie smith that guy is steaming garbage. I mean seriously i dont remember kwame harris getting beat EVERY play like this. Literately anytime a guy comes free its most likely his man, a freaking ethiopian amputee can block better then this guy.

  • mcfadden20.

    Mistic would take Freeman over Palmer , He seriously thinks he would put up same amount of points with this group? LMAO at him

    I wish Cork could give us an update on DMC…I need to know who to pick up (yes…I drafted DMC) on my Fantasy Football Team!

    Taiwan or Reece?

    Is Goodson a no-go?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Palmer was simply brutal yesterday and his supporter ar left spinning.

    palmer has regressed badly and is now resembling the sham of a qb we saw last year.

    i wonder if he gets off to a shakey start next week if he compltely implodes and starts his gradkowki impression.

    palmer vs reed…. yikes another 3 pick game coming soon

  • inonewordraider

    no surprise that mistic is here commenting the day after cp loses, yet last two wins didn’t hear much from him till about wednesday.

    if it’s about wins and losses as mistic claims cp > RGII and cp> Cam

    if it’s about passer rating like mistic used to claim it was when comparing cp and jc cp>cam, cp>russell wilson, cp>michael vick

    if it’s about turnovers like mistic says cp is then cp>michael vick, cp>russell wilson, cp>cam

    but i’m not defending cp on this one. we’re screwed but no way do you tank the season (have tp start etc) this soon sends a bad message to the players you fight till the end and you never know what can happen

  • Dakota

    On offense we need:

    1. a new OC
    2. a new RT
    3. a #1 WR
    4. a new o-line coach

    On Defense we need:

    1. a new everything

    On Special Teams we needs:

    1. a new ST coach
    2. legit returners
    3. a backup long-snapper

    We are this close to contending!

    We have a defense that gave up 251 yards rushing to one guy and you are critiquing our QB play???????

    Do you realize how emabarrassing it is to be part of a defense that lets that happen??????

    Please remain silent if you do not understand football. Our defensive line is a pathetic embarrassing mess. They are soft. Weak. Ineffective.
    The DLINE HAS NO PRIDE!!!!!!!!
    Branch leads the team in tackles and you are critiquing his pass defense?????

    Wake up.
