Texans Sign Stanford Routt To A One-Year Deal

Ezra Shaw

Let's hope this doesn't turn out to be a disaster.

Per John McClain, after working out Kansas City Chiefs castoff cornerback Stanford Routt , Houston has agreed to a one year prorated deal to shore up their depleted secondary.

What this means for the Bulls on Parade and how they attack New England is unknown, but you can be sure that Routt will spend the majority of his time outside the hashes. As a mostly press-man corner (meaning he generally just jams people off the line of scrimmage and then uses his track speed to make up for any technical mishaps), Stanford will likely be matched up frequently with Brandon Lloyd, New England's primary field-stretcher. This will leave Kareem Jackson and Brandon Harris free to work on Wes Welker in two-receiver and three-receiver sets, respectively.

Will this work? I have no idea, but it can't be any worse than Alan Ball. I miss you, J-Jo.
