New Orleans Saints wrap up visit with free agent defensive tackle Shaun Rogers

By Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune


The New Orleans Saints wrapped up their visit with free agent defensive tackle Shaun Rogers. Rogers did not sign a contract, but Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said the visit went well.

"Good visit," said Loomis, who described it as "fact finding for both sides at this point."

Rogers, a three-time Pro Bowler who turns 32 next month, has also visited the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs since he was released last week by the Cleveland Browns.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Rogers does not have any other visits scheduled for now. Rogers is free to sign with any team he wants up until March 4, since he was released before the end of the current league year. But after that date, he will be in the same boat as every other potential free agent, who won't be allowed to sign new deals until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached between the NFL's owners and players.

sign him then we can devote our attention to our linebackers and safety positions.

I'm disappointed we didn't sign him.

With the CBA in doubt, its possible that free-agency period will occur after the draft.

It would make sense to address a weakness now so we don't miss out later.

Or maybe he was as big as a house and they'd rather get a guy who doesn't have a weight problem.
