Bye-Bye Brandon

The Chiefs signed Stanford Routt to a 3-year deal Monday worth $19.6 million, which means they will not be re-signing Brandon Carr.  While he was the most penalized CB last year, all indications are that Routt is a good 2nd corner and is comparable to Carr in a lot of ways.

Even if that is true, and choosing Routt over Carr is not a talent downgrade, it still begs the question – Why?

Yes Carr would have cost a little more and was probably looking for a longer contract than the 3-years Routt signed for, but he’s also only 25.  Plus he’s a known commodity and part of defense and secondary that was at times dominating last year.

So now we replace him with at best an equivalent talent?  And for what, to save a few dollars?

My hope is as always that the Chiefs know something I don’t.  Perhaps Carr was not as interested in coming back to KC as it seemed, or maybe Crennel and the other defensive coaches think Routt is actually an upgrade, or maybe it was just too confusing to have two cornerbacks named Brandon.

If it is not for one of these reasons or some other unknown reason, then it is only penny pinching.  Another BS move from a franchise that seems to be taking pride lately in being cheap.  Scott Pioli and Clark Hunt can call it being financially responsible and frugal all they want, but unless they’re putting all these extra pennies into a jar labeled Peyton Manning, this is only trading away talent for dollars.
