Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel is an aggressive defensive coordinator by design, and during his days with the New England Patriots, his defense was disciplined—while operating in strike mode. A solid secondary plays a huge factor in the success of the front seven and how a coach can attack with blitz packages.  It’s safe to say that Crennel has found his man when the Chiefs signed cornerback Stanford Routt back on Monday to a three-year, $19.6 million deal. The Chiefs’ move answered some questions.  Specifically, Crennel is close in completing his personnel on the defense side of the ball by the signing of Routt, who will play with star cornerback Brandon Flowers. “Stanford has a proven record of success in the NFL,” said Crennel via press release.  “He’s a talented player that has spent seven seasons in the AFC West, so he is familiar with us and our division opponents.  We are excited to have Stanford join the team, and we are looking forward to getting started.” Winn
