He was just cut today by the Chiefs. He was one of the most prized secondary targets this offseason, and I definitely think the Bucs should look into picking him up, he can only help this horrid secondary.

Here's an article on it: http://www.bucsnation.com/2012/11/5/3606346/tampa-should-work-out-stanford-routt

He commands a high salary over the next few years and this year, so no way should the Bucs place a Waiver claim in for him. Honestly, from reading what Cheifs fans had to say, he's been a huge dissappointment and terrible.

If or when he clears waivers, I wouldn't mind giving him a look, although I really don't know how much or if he'd improve the secondary.

I hope we pass on him. Kc is terrible, if they don't want him why should we?

Yes we have. Adding another bad cb isn't going to improve either. Idk why there is a huge argument nor discussion.

I look at it like this, we have horrid cb's so why not try another cb he might just need to be in a different system. Look how Nnamdi Asomugha was for the Raiders and now look at him with the Eagles. It's night and day..

Our corners are easily the worst in the league and absolutely awful at best. I wouldn't mind taking a shot on a guy who has played well in this league in the past.

I mean, seriously? Wright is our #1 corner? He was too crap for Cleveland and Detroit. EJ Biggers? LOL. You know we're screwed when we're HOPING for Anthony Gaitor, who has never taken a meaningful snap. I see no way the corner situation can get any worse.

If it gets Myron Lewis off of this team, ABSOLUTELY...im done with the Myron Lewis experiment and hoping for ANYTHING from him

Last week put the icing on the cake. His form on that touchdown was so lazy and sloppy. Reece is a baller, and was a WR at Washington, but is a FB in the NFL(still runs in 4.4's)

The point was, Lewis in his only time on the field got TOASTED bad....It hurts to re watch that

Again, wouldn't mind bringing him in for a workout or signing, but also, really wouldn't go as far as criticizing the team and staff if they passed and didn't explore the option either.

I agree with you. At this point, Leonard Johnson looks like a keeper. Might as well continue to give Lequan Lewis, Gorrer, and even Tandy a look. Certainly I don't believe there will be that much of a drop off from Biggers or Myron Lewis. I think Gaitor can come off from PUP for the Eagles game, give him a chance if he is healthy.

Leonard Johnson looks like Antoine Winfield out there on the field the past 3 weeks. I think the coaches will assign him to Steve Smith next week. Getting Gaitor back is huge; at least he is way better than Lewis. Biggers isn't that bad he just can never find the ball and doesn't have hands.

I am just amazed at Biggers inability to sense the ball is in the air. The Royal deflection was a perfect example. If he gets his head around, he has an easy INT. I think the coaching staff is just better off rotating guys in off the roster and see if they can find another keeper like they have with Johnson. Johnson makes mistakes, but just keeps battling and is just the opposite of Biggers in that he knows when the ball is in the air.
