Rogers visits Redskins after being cut by Browns
Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Shaun Rogers has paid a visit to the Washington Redskins, two days after being cut by the Cleveland Browns.
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.
