Shaun Rogers Free Agency Tour Ends For Now

New, comments

Free agent DT Shaun Rogers has now visited three teams including the Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints. It appears that, for now, his visits are done. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that no more visits are scheduled.

That may be the case but Rogers has several weeks to make more visits and finally make a decision. We're thinking he wants to sign a deal with someone before March 4th, the expiration of the labor deal between the NFL owners and Player's. If he waits until after that date, he has to keep waiting until a new deal is signed, which could go into the summer (or, gulp, the fall).

So my best guess would have Rogers making a decision in the next two weeks or so. If that's the case, there's plenty of time for another team to express interest and bring him in on a visit.

I think there are a couple of important things to remember here.

First, nearly a third of the league was reportedly interested in him, so the Chiefs have competition (which usually means more money) if they want him. Second, Rogers has played his entire career on losing teams and there are some indications he wants to go to a winner. If that's the case, then you have to think the Chiefs and Saints are ahead of the Redskins.
