The Redskins and I Think Alike Sometimes....(Shaun Rogers to Visit Skins)

Just last night I wrote the post below discussing Shaun Rogers as a possible option to fill the need at nose tackle for the 3-4 scheme. And look what happened today according to DC Pro Sports Report via ESPN 980's Chris Russell:
"NT - Shaun Rogers trip to Washington to visit the is CONFIRMED, scheduled for tomorrow, per a source.

 Now before you freak about the Skins signing every free agent available for a 5 year, 20 million guaranteed contract, remember the Skins brought in a few free agents last year to check out and didn't sign them (see: Joey Porter). Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan are playing a much different game in DC than their predecessors (at least so far they have), so Rogers coming for a visit doesn't mean too much.

The Skins should check him out. He is a possible option and has proven himself at the NFL level. That said, I still think the Skins really need to do their homework on Phil Taylor, Kenrick Ellis, and a few other possible nose tackle prospects and see if we can go with some young talent.

Either way I think this is a good move to at least bring him in. It means to me that the Skins are serious about addressing the line issues on the defensive side of the ball.....something much needed for the Skins to have any success in 2011 and beyond.
