Chiefs lose out on Shaun Rogers

The New Orleans Saints have signed defensive tackle Shaun Rogers to a one-year deal. The Kansas City Chiefs were also trying to sign Rogers.

The massive defensive tackle visited with the Chiefs after being cut by Cleveland. Rogers played for Kansas City defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel in Cleveland.

The Chiefs want to bring in two new defensive tackles to add to their rotation. The team was high on Rogers because of his experience and for his ability to stuff the run.

Kansas City will surely address the position in the draft and in free agency -- whenever it begins -- after a new collective bargaining agreement is agreed upon. With Rogers out of the continue, the Chiefs could turn to defensive tackle Tommie Harris. He was cut by the Bears on Monday. However, Harris lost his starting job last season and may be on the downside of his career.
