CB Stanford Routt visiting Buffalo Sunday

Apparently the recently released CB Stanford Routt is making a trip to Buffalo Sunday for a meeting at OBD Monday. Adam Schefter is evidently confirming this as well.

Routt has been in the league seven years all with the Raiders, 28 years old 6'1 195. Two career interceptions and evidently wasn't the answer to replace Nnamdi Asomugha but was worth a huge contract initially? Well Nix did say he wants two more cornerbacks..

Oakland released cornerback Stanford Routt on Thursday, less than a year after the team gave him a “five-year, $54.5 million” contract. (It was originally a three-year, $31.5 million deal, then the team restructured the deal.)

Of course, Al Davis was the one who gave Routt that contract in 2011. G.M. Reggie McKenzie has since arrived and clearly doesn’t see Routt as a cornerback worth more than $10 million-per-season.
