Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Shaun Rogers has officially talked to the Skins, a couple days after he was dumped by Cleveland on the verge of making $5.5 mil in 2011.
Rogers met with team officials at Redskins Park on Friday as he begins his search for a new team following three seasons in Cleveland.
Rogers was cut Wednesday after playing sparingly during the 2010 season due to ankle, hip and elbow injuries. He had been scheduled to make $5.5 million in 2011 with a $500,000 roster bonus.
NFL free agency is scheduled to begin March 4—pending the outcome of negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement—but Rogers is free to sign with a new team now because the Browns terminated his contract early.
