Routt's a solid corner.
He's about 90% of Carr signed to a reasonable deal. The problem is that Carr's also on a very nice deal for the first 3 seasons, it would've just required a heavier cash outlay from Clark to make it happen.
Routt's going to take some undeserved heat this year because everyone would prefer Carr (and rightly so). But in the end the Routt signing, in a vacuum, is a decent one.
