Redskins CB Rogers will attend offseason workouts

Disgruntled Redskins CB Carlos Rogers has told the team that he will report for the start of offseason work Monday, according to a team source.

Rogers, the ninth overall draft pick by Washington in 2005, has sought a trade for weeks, and he bristled when a first-round tender was placed on him, hoping to garner an offer sheet.

However, Rogers flew to Washington this week from his Atlanta home to discuss the situation with Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, and the meeting went well, according to sources. If Rogers performs well — he was benched at times in 2009 — he will be considered for a new contract.

Rogers left Redskins Park telling coaches and teammates that he feels better about the situation.

Rogers had voiced his displeasure with the organization and publicly asked for a trade on several occasions this offseason.
