“We are excited that we were able to come to terms with Stanford,” Kansas City General Manager Scott Pioli said on the team’s website. “He is a talented player, and as we have said in the past, we are always looking to add competition at every position year-round.”
Routt’s deal is reported to be for three years and is worth $19.6 million including a $4 million signing bonus.
Routt became a free agent after he was released by the Raiders just one year into a five-year, $54.5 million deal. Including the $5 million payment still owed him by the Raiders, Routt will make $9 million in the month of March.
