As Florio pointed out this morning, recently released players like former Browns defender Shaun Rogers can sign with a new team immediately.
While many teams will undoubtedly hide behind labor uncertainty while twiddling their thumbs, it’s no surprise that the Redskins could take a different approach.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Rogers has spoken with Washington and could set up a visit with the team, perhaps as early as tomorrow. Surely Rogers’ camp hopes that another team gets involved to potentially drive up Rogers’ price.
Going after Rogers would be a sign that Albert Haynesworth has no future in Washington, not that we really need another sign.
Coming up with a fair contract before a work stoppage could be tricky. Players may have to give up a little bit of earning potential long-term to get money in their pocket.
