    REPORT: ROGERS WANTS OUT OF CLEVELAND

    Posted by Mike Florio on February 25, 2009, 6:57 a.m.
    In 2008, several teams made deals for oversized defensive tackles who had worn out their welcomes in the cities that drafted them.
    Specifically, the Jets traded for Kris Jenkins of the Panthers, the Broncos traded for Dewayne Robertson of the Jets, the Bills traded for Marcus Stroud of the Jaguars, and the Browns traded for Shaun Rogers of the Lions.
    After, of course, the Bengals tried unsuccessfully to do so.
    If Rogers has his way, only two of them will remain in place a year after the fact. Recently, the Broncos cut Robertson — and Rogers reportedly wants the Browns to do the same.
    According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, Rogers wants out of Cleveland in the wake of the regime change from Phil Savage-Romeo Crennel to George Kokinis-Eric Mangini.
    Schefter specifically reports that Rogers has asked the Browns not to pay a $6 million option bonus owed to him next month. The payment is part of $15 million in guaranteed money that Rogers is still due to receive.
    Rogers’ nose is out of its normal joint in part because of two perceived incidents of disrespect involving the new coach. First, Mangini allegedly entered the team’s training room and failed to greet Rogers. (Maybe they should adopt a “kiss hello” program to avoid such issues.) Then, at a charity event for which both were in the “green room,” Mangini didn’t speak to Rogers.
    Mangini later said that he didn’t know Rogers was there.
    Yeah, he’s easy to miss.
    The Browns, per Schefter, don’t intend to part ways with Rogers. He excelled in his first season as a 3-4 nose tackle, and the Browns will need him as they continue to use that same defensive approach.
    But maybe Rogers is eyeing another situation in which the 3-4 is going to be adopted. Perhaps a situation where Crennel has been linked as a potential consultant. Perhaps a situation where the future is perceived to be much brighter with the addition of one of the architects of those these Super Bowls in four years that the Patriots won earlier this decade.
    The possibility of Rogers fleeing to the Chiefs is all the more reason, in our view, for the Browns to refuse to let him go. Though both Mangini and Scott Pioli are now with new teams, we’ve got a feeling that the bad blood from the Jets-Pats feud runs very deep, and that Mangini will do nothing if it can directly or indirectly help Pioli’s new team succeed.


    Would this gut be of any service? his numbers are not too bad. I do not know much about him...attitude etc.
    I'm really glad you posted this article. I heard this today and instantly got excited. Rogers is one of the best 3-4 NT's in the league. He'd be a huge deal if we are moving to a 3-4.

    As the article correctly points out though, their is no love lost between the Browns/Mangini and Pioli/Chiefs. Pioli turned down the Browns job to come to the Chiefs.

    If Crennel came to the Chiefs to be the DC after turning down the same offer from Clevelend, then there would be even more blood in the water. They will not let Chiefs get him for free. There will need to be compensation at the VERY least.

    Maybe something like swapping 1st rounders and the Chiefs sending them Dorsey and a 2nd round pick. Not really sure how it will work out. But he would be the biggest FA acquisition we make this season if we are moving to a 3-4.

    Lots of things would have to go right for this deal to happen though.

    Thanks for posting the article.

    I'm not interested in losing draft position, last year's first rounder and a 2nd this year for one player.

    I'm not sure what the draft consideration would be. But I would guess something in that ballpark. We'd move down a few spots and likely still get what we want for less guaranteed money. It's all just food for thought anyhow. Too many variables.

    Sigh.

    Looks like we are down to, in order of importance IMO:

    Jason Brown, C, Ravens
    Jon Vilma, LB, Saints
    Chris Canty, DE, Cowboys
    Antonio Smith, DE, Cardinals
    Bart Scott, LB, Ravens

    We NEED to get at least two of these guys. I think with our 50 mil of space we can totally throw a bunch of $$ at Brown and secure two spots on our OL (move Niswanger to RG). Plus, I dont think Baltimore can afford both him, Lewis, and Scott.

    Not sure if Vilma wants to leave, but I would love to have him here too. But I wouldnt go insane with the money for him.

    I think we need to get one of these DEs. We need someone that can contribute now, and no drafted DL is going to be a contributor for a couple years.

    Everyone I've heard and read about the Vilma situation feels like Vilma is just waiting for free agency to begin before he resigns with the Saints. If he were to sign before FA begins then the Saints would have had to give up a 1st round pick.

    Our best chances on that list are Bart Scott, Chris Canty, and Antonio Smith. I'd like Canty the most of those names.

    Agreed. Although I really want to pickup Brown too.
