According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, free agent CB Stanford Routt clashed with coaches and missed curfew before being cut by the Chiefs.

Routt was getting torched on the field and not acting professionally on it. He reportedly wanted to use the technique he learned in Oakland instead of adapting to the Chiefs' scheme and Schefter says the coaches there "did not like him." It helps explain why they paid him $6 million to go away two weeks ago.

Free agent CB Stanford Routt left his Lions visit Friday without a contract in place with the team.

The Lions will reportedly host free agent CB Stanford Routt on Friday.

At 6'1" and 195 pounds, Routt offers size and experience lacking in the Lions secondary. While Chris Houston has played well this season, Jacob Lacey and Bill Bentley have disappointed on the other side.

Per the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are not interested in free agent CB Stanford Routt at this time.

Even after they gave up 433 passing yards to Andrew Luck and lost Richard Marshall (back) for the season, the Dolphins are passing on Routt. It's a reminder that 4.27 wheels can't cure everything. Routt was also reportedly drawing interest from the Cardinals and Lions.

Free agent CB Stanford Routt is drawing interest from the Dolphins, Cardinals, and Lions.

Routt was released by the Chiefs on Monday. The 29-year-old allowed a dreadful 64.1 completion percentage, 491 yards, and three touchdowns in seven games as Kansas City's right corner this year, according to Pro Football Focus. Quarterbacks had an astronomical 111.9 rating throwing at Routt. Miami lost Richard Marshall (back) to injured reserve, Arizona has employed a rotation opposite Patrick Peterson, and Detroit's secondary has been ravaged by injuries. Routt should be able to find a job before season's end.

Chiefs released CB Stanford Routt.

We're starting to get scapegoats in Kansas City. Even though Routt is a vested veteran, all players must pass through waivers this time of season. A starter through Week 8, Routt was a healthy scratch for Week 9. Javier Arenas will now start opposite Brandon Flowers, leaving Jalil Brown for nickel duties. Making $6 million in the first year of a three-year deal, Routt has graded out as the 16th worst cornerback in Pro Football Focus' rankings, so the move is justified, if surprising. He should draw plenty of interest as veteran depth for the stretch run.
