CB Carlos Rogers Positive He’ll Find Interest In Free Agency

Carlos Rogers, who has been a Redskin longer than all but three of his teammates, has waited almost six years to become an unrestricted free agent. Now the cornerback will have to wait even longer because of the lockout imposed by the NFL after the Players Association decertified as a union after 16 days of negotiations failed to produce a new collective bargaining agreement. Although Rogers also lost his first shot at full-fledged free agency in 2010 when fifth-year players became restricted not unrestricted because of the uncapped year, he’s not uptight about his situation.

Rogers was also not worried about the lack of any serious negotiations between the Redskins, who chose Rogers ninth overall in the 2005 draft, and his agent, Todd France, while the parties were allowed to talk contract. Rogers doesn’t know what to think about the lack of love expressed by owner Dan Snyder, general manager Bruce Allen and coach Mike Shanahan, who declined to tender him at the highest level a year ago and haven’t made a serious attempt to re-sign him to a long-term contract since.

“My agent said six teams called last year before I re-signed with the Redskins so I know there’ll be interest if I become a free agent,” said Rogers “I want to stay in Washington, but if I become a free agent, I’m going to be talking to everyone. It’s not going to be me automatically going back because I’ve always been there.”
