When I write a headline like that, I'm well aware there's a legit chance the Redskins will still sign him.
Imagine a 4-3 defense with Rogers and Haynesworth as the Defensive Tackles (we have #92 next year for cheap - $5.5 mil - no bonuses). Plus, that would save some wear and tear on Fletcher and for sure would give our DEs 1-1 looks. Nah, that makes too sense. Both Super Bowl teams had a 3-4...we MUST use it!!!! Kidding aside and after chatting with some Browns fans, Rogers and Haynesworth appear to have been born from the same egg.
|- Rogers earned a Pro-Bowl in 2008||- Broke his leg in 2009|
|- 6'4" 350 lbs.||- Saw a huge dip in stats in 2010 from previous years (NTs don't have big stats anyway)|
|- He can't be worse than Ma'ake Kemoeatu.||- Has a history of not getting along with coaches.|
|- Versatile: Has played DE & NT in 3-4 and DT 4-3 (with Detroit)||- Only played ~25 snaps a game last year. Not highly effective in those snaps either. (CLE's rushing D ranked 27th anyway)|
|- Rarely attended full practices despite playing most games. Showed a real lazy attitude.|
|- Was arrested last April for carrying a gun into Cleveland airport.|
|- Busted in 2006 for steroids and suspended 4 games|
|- In 2006 an exotic stripper filed charges against Rogers she was inappropriately touched. Charges later dropped.|
Cleveland fans were a bit upset that the Browns weren't able to get SOMETHING back for Rogers in a trade, but the release probably tells us they tried to trade him and no teams had interest. The Redskins have a bunch of low picks, so for them not to use one proves he's not high on our list.
