Every once in a while, we throw a dart that bounces off the ceiling, ricochets off some dude’s head, and hits the target.

Earlier today, we reported that cornerback Stanford Routt would be picking a new team soon, and I guessed that he’d pick the Chiefs.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, he has. The source says it’s a three-year deal worth just under $20 million.

That’s less than $5 million more than Routt ultimately earned for one year in Oakland.

Routt had visited the Bills, Chiefs, and Bengals since being cut by the Raiders.
