Did Shaun Rogers Turn Down The Kansas City Chiefs Offer?

As you all know, DT Shaun Rogers was released by the Cleveland Browns several weeks ago and visited three teams -- Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints. On Tuesday, the Saints announced Rogers had been signed. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports Rogers agreed to a one-year deal worth $4 million.

He also reports via an unnamed source that Rogers turned down a $6 million offer from another team. 

Could that team have been the Chiefs? KC was one of three cities he visited, and he signed with one of those cities, leaving KC and Washington as the possible offers (though La Canfora does report that he had interest from other teams, so the offer could have come from one of them).

Do we think the Chiefs made an offer? 

If we're under the assumption it was a one-year, $6 million offer, then I have a hard time thinking that was the Chiefs. Relative to the salaries of others on the team, that seems high, especially for a player who may not practice with the team later into the summer if/when a lockout might end. 

Plus, the Redskins are the other team. You know, the Redskins. They overpay everyone, right?
