Texans to work out Stanford Routt Tuesday

Jamie Squire

In seven games with the Chiefs, Stanford Routt recorded two interceptions and four passes defended before he was released.

The Texans plan to work out former-Chiefs cornerback Stanford Routt among others at the position on Tuesday, according to John Brannen of the Houston Chronicle.

Routt, 29, is a native of Texas and was drafted in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Raiders after a successful football and track career at the University of Houston. Alongside Nnamdi Asomugha, Routt had some success early in his career and received a large extension in February 2011, but was released by the Raiders in February 2012.

A few weeks later, Routt was signed by the Chiefs, but was released after just seven games with the team. In seven start in 2012, Routt recorded two interceptions and 21 tackles.

The Texans are in the market for another veteran defensive back after the team announced on Monday that cornerback Brice McCain will be placed on injured reserve. With Jonathan Joseph and Alan Ball each battling injuries, the team may need a veteran patch at the position.
