Shaun Rogers reaches agreement with New Orleans Saints

By Cindy Boren

Defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, who met with, among other teams, the Redskins earlier this month, has reached agreement on a single-year deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Rogers was free to sign with a team before the end of the current year tomorrow because he was released by the Cleveland Browns.

He visited the Redskins in mid-February.

I was not in favor of signing Rogers because he has had both work ethic and attitude issues in the past. His weight has ballooned at times and he has not been the most consistent performer on the field either.

In New Orleans he will be playing for a coordinator that will kick some butt and has the support of management.

Something you always wonder about here in Washington when it comes to coaches trying to coach the talent.

Besides on a one year contract Rogers is likely to be on his best behavior and the Saints as a consistent playoff team the past several years give him the opportunity to win now.

I am sure the idea of coming to a 6-10 mess like the Redskins was not that attractive.

Thank God. Rogers is another Haynesworth in the making.

This team needs purge itself from the Haynesworth type of player. And add the London Fletcher, types to its roster.
