The Redskins will take a look at Shaun Rogers, the NT that was released on Wednesday by the Cleveland Browns. Rogers had two sacks this past season for Cleveland.
Keeping with the strategy adopted by previous regimes of pursing veteran players, a league source said the Redskins are expected to host free agent nose tackle Shaun Rogers on Friday.
Rogers, 32 next month, was released by Cleveland during a roster purge last week as the Browns transition back to a 4-3 defensive scheme.
Rogers is eligible to be signed before March 4 because his Browns contract was terminated. Free-agents-to-be like the Redskins’ Santana Moss and Carlos Rogers can’t talk to other teams until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.
The Redskins have vowed to stick with their 3-4 scheme and have a gaping hole at nose tackle, especially one with Rogers’ size (6-foot-4, 350 pounds).
