In an interview with David Elfin of 106.7 FM (Washington), Redskins CB Carlos Rogers discussed his plans for the future and free agency and from what he said, there’s a good chance that he won’t be back in Washington next season.
“I ain’t never discounting the Redskins, but my mindset right now is that it’s time for a change,” said Rogers. “I don’t think I’ve been as appreciated as I should be in that organization, not by everybody. I’ve always been the No. 2 corner, but I’m the one they put on a guy they want to shut down. I just don’t have the interceptions like [current fellow starting corner DeAngelo Hall] has and Shawn [Springs]used to have.”
Rogers makes a good point about the perceived value of interceptions and how it affects peoples opinions of a players worth. Last year, DeAngelo Hall led the team in interceptions with six but four of those came in one game against the Chicago Bears. Rogers ended the season with only two picks but also played in four fewer games. One ridiculous game can make a players stats seem plenty better than another’s but it’s not always the best indication of the players ability or worth to their team.
Rogers,30, will be a solid option for teams that miss out on Nnamdi Asomugha or are looking for better value.
