Free Agent DT Shaun Rogers Takes A Visit To Kansas City Chiefs

New, 1 comment

The Kansas City Chiefs haven't seen much player movement because of the current labor situation. There won't be free agency until a new CBA between the NFL owners and players is signed which means there won't be many players on the open market. 

For now, Shaun Rogers is on the open market. The Cleveland Browns released him last week and he's available to sign with any team up until the March 3rd deadline of the expiration of the CBA. 

On Tuesday, he visited the Kansas City Chiefs. There is a Chiefs connection with defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel having coached him (to a Pro Bowl) while with the Browns. 

Rogers is 6'4" and 340 pounds so he's got nose tackle size although he also played some defensive end in the Browns 3-4 defense last year. If the Chiefs end up signing him -- and we're not sure if they're leaning that way or not -- he would be a candidate to play nose tackle, a position currently held by Ron Edwards, who is scheduled to be a free agent in 2011.

Rogers has reportedly drawn the interest of 10 teams around the league. He also visited with the Washington Redskins last week.
