The Oakland Raiders announced they have released cornerback Stanford Routt. Routt signed a 3-year, $31.5 million extension last February which was restructured into a 5-year, $54 million deal in September for cap reasons. I thought Routt was clearly the Raiders' best corner last season, and do not really understand the move at all. Routt turns 29 in July and his release certainly adds to the corner depth available in free agency.

An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
