You read that correctly. No team in the league values Routt as highly as the Raiders. They managed to drastically overpay even though they were essentially bidding against themselves. Routt is a versatile corner sporting an impressive catch rate last season, but it's laughable to hand him two-thirds of Nnamdi Asomugha's salary.

This is one of the reasons Senator Rockefeller is asking the owners to show their financial books, something the players unions have been asking for a year and the owners refuse to do.
