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.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    For the stat geeks who really believe Mike Vick should be benched.

    ===

    but we got HOF OLINE and HALL OF RB’s AND WR for the reason Palmer should be cut for not succeeding

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    When did I say Palmer should be cut???? Or even benched for that matter?? But he’s playing with an OL that’s a hell of a lot better than what Vick has.

    What does Vick have to do with the Raiders?

    Nothing.

    Why are u talking about him?

    freeman, newton griffin, russel and luck > palmer

    palmer might fetch a used losing lotto ticket, or a pair of prowings in a trade.

    he doesnt win, cant lead and is a bone headed loser looking for his first chance to quit.

    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.

    LMFAO at ANYTHING you say cuz it’s all garbage.

    What a joke you are.

    Double LMAO

    Freeman BTW, in his last 24 games (2011/2012), has 32 TD’s to 33 turnovers.

    Or give me some time, and I could probably cherry-pick a point from last season to make those look worse, lol.

    freeman > palmer and it isnt close
    =========================================

    With all due respects this is one of the dumbest things ever posted on this blog. And that is saying something.

    I told you that Jason Campbell when he was here had a QB rating over 120 in select games. In those games our team ran for over 200 yards. When we weren’t rushing for over 200 yards Campbell was flat out terrible.

    It was the exact same thing yesterday: Josh Freeman had a running attack that could not be stopped. You could have put ME back there and I could have completed some passes while Marting was running for almost 300 yards.

    But what we did see was a Q, with no running game, down 3 scores, put a team on his back. And it’s not the first time. I’d like to see Freeman do that.

    This is truly the tiniest IQ in all of this blog.
    Maybe in the world.

    We would have lost 35-10 yesterday without Palmer.

    61 passing attempts, zero running game, receivers runnign wrong routes, getting hit as he’s throw all day, and ZERO rush defense on the other side of the ball to the tune of 6 TDs allowed, and you expect him to be perfect? I think I even saw Mistic say that the defense was tired since Palmer kept throwing the ball to the other team? What garbage, they had already given up 5 TDs before he made the 2nd INT which effectively ended the comeback. Then they promptly allowed Martin to go 35+ yards in 3 plays for his 4th TD to seal the deal. This is Carson’s fault? How about a little resistance. How about some run blocking and pass blocking? How about some balance? 61 freaking attempts?

    Wow, what a small minded fool. Everyone, just ignore this guy. Its not worth your time or mine.

    Yeah, we could use a better set of backups to McFadden.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I was never a fan of the Palmer trade. Mainly his lack of escaping the pocket. Even when there are running lanes he is to slow.

    He put up alot of numbers in cincy with nothing to show for it and he threw .. wait for it alot of INTS. Thats just palmer. He is a step above average qb and thorws alot of INTS. IT wouldnt matter if he had a great oline. THe guy likes to take chances and makes bad choices at times.

    Palmer will never win anything significant for the Raiders which is it was joke for hue to trade for him. This team is in rebuild mode. No question about it. Next year might be worse b4 it gets better. TK , SEYMOUR, DMAC all gonna be gone. Wont be suprised if Palmer is gone too.

    More like don’t remind us…that dude just plain sucks!

  • alex7

    When most QBs are FORCED to pass because their running game is extinct (MARK SANCHEZ) the results are terrifying.

    Palmer is keeping us in games, MOVING the ball, scoring points, DESPITE the D knowing what’s coming.

    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!

    thank you for making my point freeman did exactly what a good qb should do, he managed the game and was turn over free. he mnade plays when he had to and finished with a win.

    palmer thrwew the game a way like drunken sailor throws a away a hooker ruined rubber. the game was that nasty

    at this stage of the game freeman is a better player than palmer

    palmer 3-5 13 tds 12 turn overs

    freeman 4-4 16 tds and 10 turn overs

    lol didint you guys watch the game/

    i told you last week that freeman was a better qb and it proved out sunday as palmer tossed wild pick after wild wounded duck pick

    Lots of hot garbage to go around.
    That was tough to watch.
    It WAS fun watching Carson Bomber make it intersting though. Most Raider teams of the last 3 decades would have MAILED IT IN from about 33 mins into the game.
    Now only if I had started CP3 instead of RGIII on my FF team….

  • alex7

    Remember FREEMAN last year? No running game, no WRs, and he was TERRIBLE.

    16 TDs, 22 INTs, 74 QB rating.

    That’s Freeman last year with Bucs, or this year if he was on the Raiders.

    Alex… Good points … And I agree

    the funny thing is palmer is being compared to freeman but has been in the nfl for so many more years than freeman.

    Russel newton griffin luck are all very young players and already i would take them over the beat up whoopti on four flats…palmer

    he has 10 years of nfl starting experience and he plays like blain gabbert

    palmer 3-5 13 tds 12 turn overs

    Palmer didn’t lose yesterday’s game….. Our Run D and coaching played the biggest part in this loss

    Freeman is only completing 55% of his passes.

    Some of those passes are TDs. Good for him. But 55%? With that running game? Not that impressive.

    of course retreat into fantasy, becauyse your reality is too painful to cope with.

    Your hero threw away a very winnable home game against a middle of the road football team that tried to give him the game.

    he looked more like the 4th year player and was badly outplayed by his junior counter part.

    he talked big and fell flat on his face with a resounding thud, clearly audible in the coliseum which was silent after palmers horrific gradkowski like picks

    Watching Palmer throw 3 4th quarter TD’s and on his way to a 4th was pretty insane. There are very very very few Q’s in this league that can do that. By themselves. And Josh Freeman certainly is not one of them.
