Shaun Rogers was released from the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Feb. 10, 2011.

He is now a free agent and rumor has it that multiple teams are interested. 

Rogers is going on 32 years old next month and speculation about his age being the reason he was released from the Browns has been made. 

With Rogers' size being so rare, coming in at 6'4" and 340 pounds, he is still an attractive free agent for other teams.

But he comes at a price, $6 million in 2011. 

Rogers is able to sign with any team before March 3rd, when the current collective bargaining agreement expires. According to Jason La Canfora, a NFL Network insider, over one-third of the league has contacted Rogers. 

Rogers' has visited the Washington Redskins on Friday, Feb. 11, 2011 and is going to visit the Kansas City Chiefs next Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011. 

Rogers would appear to have his pick of the litter if over one-third of the league has contacted him. Besides visiting the Redskins and Chiefs, where else will he go? 

Rogers would be a valuable player for many teams in the NFL, but without knowing how interested he is in any teams, it's hard to say where he'll go next.

He is a good player in a 4-3 defense. As a defensive tackle he is talented and could be beneficial to many teams.

He is no longer one of the young players, but he is still valuable.
