When cornerback Carlos Rogers left the Washington Redskins in favor of the San Francisco 49ers, the last place Redskins fans ever anticipated seeing Rogers was back in the Burgundy and Gold. This reality may come to fruition after the Redskins signing of Andre Roberts this morning, the cheap alternative to the pricier more notable free agents.
Michael Phillips of the Richmond Dispatch reported, “As strange as it sounds, Carlos Rogers is the most likely to end up in Washington by the end of the day.”
Rogers’ days in Ashburn were full of ups and downs primarily due to Rogers’ inability to secure interceptions after dropping key passes in big games. Rogers, however, proved to be a valuable asset in San Fran intercepting 11 passes during his three-year stint. This is just a report, but do not be surprised to see Rogers back in a Redskins Park this evening.
The signing of the 32-year old would provide some depth to a rather weak secondary that currently has David Amerson playing the second cornerback position. Although Rogers is not a solution to the problem, he would provide valuable experience at a low risk, and has developed into a very consistent defender since his days in a Redskins uniform
