Moody, lazy, talented defensive lineman is seeking a new deal after a bit of a rocky relationship with his former team and the Redskins are swooping in to kick the tires. Wait, doesn’t this sound familiar?

In the past, the Washington Redskins have been accused of inexplicably ignoring the NFL draft in order to pursue free agents who, by definition, provide little value for the contracts that they command. Thank goodness those days are behind us…oh right:

Chris Russell of ESPN 980 was the first, as far as we can tell, to report that the Redskins will meet with Rogers on Friday. As we recently explained, veterans with four or more years of service who are released between now and March 3 become free agents and can sign with another team.

Rogers can play nose tackle or end in the Redskins’ 3-4 defense. His presence could make Albert Haynesworth expendable.

Oh well, thank goodness for that! Haynesworth is only a younger, substantially better version of Shaun Rogers. Rogers is also about as motivated to get into shape as Kevin Federline (slides opened copy of “Us Weekly” under desk) so this should work out about as well as other Redskin free agency acquisitions. At least Rogers is more apt to obey the rules of the road then Haynesworth.
