Carlos Rogers Would Like To Play For The Eagles

Redskins' CB Carlos Rogers is set to be a free agent this summer and from the sound of it, he can't wait to get out of Washington. 

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, Hall’s predecessor) used to have."

The 29 year old was the 9th overall pick in the 2005 draft and thinks he's the second best corner on the market this summer. He also says that he'd like to remain in the NFC East and knows the Eagles are looking for a corner.

"My agent’s real confident that I’m going to get a good contract. After [Oakland’s Nnamdi Asomugha), who’s going to get real big money, I’m the next corner out there." You hear that the Cowboys and Eagles are looking for a corner. It would be fun to play against the Redskins twice a year."

Rogers is probably inflating himself a bit by saying he's the second best corner on the market. Jonathon Joseph is clearly a better player(and younger) as is Nate Clements if he were to come available. That's not to say Rogers is bad however. He does have good speed and can be physical. However he has had injury issues and doesn't really make a lot of plays. Now when a corner doesn't get a lot of picks it could be that he doesn't get thrown at a lot (see Asomugha), but it could also mean that he just doesn't have very good ball skills (see Rogers).

Rogers simply doesn't make a ton of plays on the ball. Still, he's better than Dimitri Patterson. So if the Eagles are looking for fallback options if they don't land Asomugha or Joseph, Rogers could be an alternative. It will be interesting to see what the rest of the league thinks of Rogers in terms of value.
