Free agent cornerback Stanford Routt has been touring the country looking for a landing spot ever since being released from the Oakland Raiders earlier this month. He has already visited the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs, and has also shown interest in the Tennessee Titans, Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys. Now you can add the Cincinnati Bengals to that list.
Jason La Canfora reports that Routt was in Cincinnati on Friday to talk with the team.

Corners Adam Jones and Kelly Jennings will become unrestricted free agents at the start of free agency, potentially leaving the Bengals with gaps to fill in the secondary. Cincinnati ranked in the middle of the NFL pack against the pass, giving up an opponent quarterback rating of 85.0 over the course of the regular season.
