Saints sign Rogers, tender offers to 10 players

March 2, 2011

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints says they've signed free-agent defensive tackle Shaun Rogers to a one-year contract.

Rogers is a former three-time Pro Bowl player who was recently released by Cleveland.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club on Tuesday also tendered offers to 10 restricted free agents. However, those tenders could be voided by a new collective bargaining agreement currently being negotiated by NFL owners and the players' union.

The tenders were offered to defensive tackle Remi Ayodele, left tackle Jermon Bushrod, left guard Carl Nicks, safeties Roman Harper and Usama Young, running back Pierre Thomas, receiver Lance Moore, tight end David Thomas, kicker Garrett Hartley and defensive end Jeff Charleston.
