Browns to Sit Down with Former Steelers Wide Out Eli Rogers

Monday it became official that wide out Josh Gordon would not start camp with the Browns after announcing he was going to stay away from the team for now for health reasons.

The team might dabble in the free agent market to fill the void, and one player they will speak to is former Steelers free agent wide out Eli Rogers.

Rogers sat down on Monday with the Kansas City Chiefs, but left K.C. without a deal in place.

One easy connection with Rogers to come to the Browns is the fact that he played for three seasons with the Steelers while new Browns OC Todd Haley ran the show, so he knows the offensive system the Browns are going to employ.

Rogers is still coming back from a torn ACL that he suffered in January.

The 25-year-old last season had 18 catches in 14 games with 149 yards and one score. The season before he was a lot more productive, pulling in 48 catches for 594 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games.
