Chiefs sign former Raiders cornerback Routt

The Kansas City Chiefs signed free agent cornerback Stanford Routt, the National Football League (NFL) team said on Monday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but a report on the NFL's website said the former Oakland Raider received a three-year contract worth $19.6 million.

"He's a talented player that has spent seven seasons in the AFC West, so he is familiar with us and our division opponents," Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said in a statement.

Routt, 28, started 15 games for the Raiders last season, making four interceptions, but was recently released.
