DL Shaun Rogers not shocked his days with Browns were cut short

In an interview with a Houston radio station, former Browns defensive lineman Shaun Rogers said he wasn't surprised when he was cut by Cleveland last week.

"It's one of those things that come with the territory," Rogers told KILT. "When you're a veteran guy like myself, eventually these (things) are gonna happen."

Rogers, 31, is now looking to continue his career elsewhere. He visited the Kansas City Chiefs today and the Washington Redskins last week, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. He can sign with another team through March 3.

Ankle and hip injuries, along with the emergence of Browns nose tackle Ahtyba Rubin, caused Rogers' playing time to decrease during the 2010 season. Rogers, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, finished with a career-low 17 tackles, but he believes he still has something left in the tank.

"I would just hope that my track record speaks for itself," Rogers said. "Unfortunately, last year, I kind of played through some injuries against some advice from my agent, Kennard (McGuire). He probably would have liked to see me sat down a little bit until I was fully there. But we're great competitors in this game. Guys go out there and try to give it their all (under) all circumstances. I think I did all right for what I was asked to do (last season). Most definitely my goal right now is just to get healthy and look into any opportunities."
