08:06 AM ET 02.17 | Shaun Rogers is drawing more interest, this time from the New Orleans Saints, who reportedly brought the free-agent defensive tackle in for a visit on Wednesday. Rogers, who turns 32 next month, also has visited the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs. Rogers can sign with any team until March 4, because he was released before the end of the current league year. If he doesn't sign before that date, he will be in the same boat with the rest of the NFL's potential free agents, who can't sign anywhere until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached ... At his peak, Rogers has been one of the most dynamic defensive tackles in the league, with an ability to pressure the passer and stuff the run.

He's coming to Washington.

plus he has blocked multiple field goals and extra points...
keys words in this T&R are "at his peak" - while I would not compare him to Fat Albert, yet, his attuitude and practice habits had dwindled over the last season and a half to 'Albert-like'

that is not a comparison you want to have as a FA.

He's that type??

I can see it. That Saints defense got jacked up in the playoffs. And they will have some players about to finally get some time out for PED use two years ago.

A solid organization like the Saints would be a better fit than Washington or KC. KC is just developing a winning culture, and Washington needs to develop one. Those teams need their FAs to be leaders and good locker room guys, not potential attitude problems.

A championship-caliber team has the resources in place to keep him in check better and get some performance out of him. Belichek excels at that and Payton can, too.

Good - now you have 21 holes to plug instead of 20.

Just got an edge to stay out of last place...

Don't be so sure. If the Redskins and the Saints want him, and you were him were you want to go? (If you were not a Skins fan.)

Hope not. I'm in Cleveland and he has a lot of ability, but even more of an attitude.

In his defense, I doubt the Browns HAD much of a practice habit, or a reason for a good attitude during that time period.
