Dolphins not interested in signing CB Stanford Routt

The Dolphins passed at signing free agent cornerback Stanford Routt

The Miami Dolphins were one of three teams interested in free agent cornerback Stanford Routt. The other two are the Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions. After thinking it over, the Dolphins elected to not sign Routt, according to the Miami Herald.

Routt was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 5, and has had an underwhelming career. The Chiefs signed him to a three-year deal worth just under $20 million back in February, but he obviously did not last. He had a similar deal with the Oakland Raiders in 2011, but he was let go after his first year.

Routt is coveted because of his speed. He ran a 4.27 at the 2005 combine, but he has never lived up to his potential. His strengths are that he is very good at press coverage, but he has issues with playing in a zone scheme.

The Dolphins could change their mind if they need to replace an injured defensive back, but as of right now, they are taking a pass on Routt.
