Shaun Rogers among six Browns cuts

The Browns have started to whittle down their offseason roster, with one big name headlining the list of cuts.

Zac Jackson of FOXSports Ohio reports that defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is among five Browns to be notified they are being released. Also on the cut list: linebacker Eric Barton, linebacker David Bowens, tight end Robert Royal, and tackle John St. Clair.

(UPDATE: The Browns have since confirmed the cuts.)

The final four names on the list are no surprise. They are “Mangini guys” and their production no longer matched their salary. Bowens and Barton may not have fit in the team’s new defense.

Rogers’ release is more notable. The Browns clearly believed he was no longer worth his $5.5 million salary, and they are probably right considering his lack of playing time and shaky health in 2010.

With that said, Rogers is “only” turning 32 years old this year and can by a truly dynamic player when motivated. It will be interesting to see if teams show interest in signing him this month before a possible work stoppage.

(UPDATE II: The Browns also cut defensive lineman Kenyon Coleman.)

No need because if he screws up all of the sudden his past will be used against him.

I seem to recall that Rogers and Casey Hampton were once teammates on the D-line at Texas.

Yes, and like most positions at tu, especially on DL or OL, 1 guy works hard and carries the group of overtalented players. In this case, Hampton carried Rodgers lazy behind for years, despite Rodgers probably being the more talented player. Just no effort or desire out of him. Stay clear.

Browns clean house, cut six veterans

By James Walker
ESPN.com


New Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur made his first major step of the offseason Wednesday by cleaning house with veteran players.

The Browns cut six veterans, which include tight end Robert Royal, offensive tackle John St. Clair, defensive linemen Shaun Rogers and Kenyon Coleman and linebackers David Bowens and Eric Barton. Most were considered favorites of former Browns head coach Eric Mangini.

"We kind of had a feeling that with a new regime Cleveland wanted to go with younger players," said Bowens' agent, Harold Lewis. "David was Eric's guy and [former defensive coordianator] Rob Ryan's guy. So it's not a surprise."

The biggest name on this list is Rogers, who is one of the NFL's most dominant defensive linemen when healthy. Rogers had his best year under former Browns head coach Romeo Crennel in 2008 but suffered injuries and never played as well during his two seasons under Mangini.

Coleman was acquired from the Jets when New York traded up to select Mark Sanchez in the 2009 NFL draft. Of the seven players the Browns received in trades related to the Sanchez deal, only center Alex Mack is still with Cleveland. Safety Abram Elam, who was included in the trade, is a free agent.

Little to no chance he ends up here but that big bastard can get some pressure up the middle when he's motivated.

He better not land here after his act of douchethuggery against Ben a couple years ago. Ramamber when he bounced Ben to the ground with his belly way after a play was over? No flag and a ref was standing right there. let him fall out of the league.

I've heard some stupid reasons for not signing someone but that one might take the cake.

:lol: :brownssuck

They traded back 3 times in that draft, allowing the Jets to get Sanchez at 5, the Bucs to get Josh Freeman at 17, the Eagles to get Jeremy Maclin at 19, and all they have to show for it now is Alex Mack, who they took at 21. So, essentially, they moved back 16 spots in the first round, and ended up with nothing for it.

:lol: :brownssuck

I heard the funniest statement about the Browns cutting 6 players on Mike and Mike this morning. They were doing a bit on the NFL and they said, that "The Browns cut 6 players yesterday and that the rest of the team is jealous of the 6 players that were cut." :lol:

Report: Redskins interested in Shaun Rogers

http://www.rotoworld.com/images/headshots/NFL/1819.jpg

The Redskins have reportedly already "reached out" to free agent DL Shaun Rogers.

Per Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, Rogers is expected to visit the Redskins this week, perhaps as soon as Friday. With Albert Haynesworth as good as gone this offseason, Rogers would be a replacement at nose tackle. Rogers can still get after quarterbacks, but he's no longer a top-notch run stuffer.

I know there are a lot of questions with this guys character but he can still be a game changer and take over a game like a Sapp, Haynesworth, Peppers, Williams, etc.

Tomlin could be a much better diciplinarian then the Redskins and can get 100% effort/production out of this guy but he also may say that you must be self motivating at this level which cant be taught.

If the Redskins dump Haynesworth, then going after Rogers makes sense for them, since they'll have a big need in getting another overpriced d-lineman who is dominant 20% of the time and a fat lazy slob 80% of the time. :mrgreen:

Rodgers may be lazy, but he seems to create a lot of problems for us. I'll be glad to not have to see him 2x a year.

Cleveland Browns 2011 Draft: Do Roster Cuts Have Influence on Drafting Process?

By Brian Murtaugh (Browns Featured Columnist) on February 10, 2011

Robert Quinn, DE/DT, North Carolina

The Cleveland Browns announced yesterday that the team has cut six veteran players in order to free up cap room and rebuild with an influx of younger talent.

The NFL draft is one of the key ways to get that talent into the organization and with four of the six roster cuts on the defensive side of the ball, it is reasonable to think that defense should be on the mind of the Browns front office.

Shaun Rogers was the most notable name to be sent away from Cleveland throughout the roster cuts and writers seem to wonder how Cleveland will go about replacing him.

The Browns will likely switch to a 4-3 defense in 2011, which leaves the question of who will fill in for the two linebackers and linemen that the Browns lost.

Athyba Rubin is expected to be the man to fill in one of those holes along the defensive line as his emergence in 2010 made the absence of Rogers seem irrelevant.

That leaves three more spots that need filling.

Cleveland owns the sixth overall pick in the draft and even though many speculate that Cleveland will go for a wide receiver or trade down, it is worth noting that some quality defensive talent should still be on the board.

Marcell Dareus is one of those defensive players.

Dareus was one of the most feared linemen in the entire NCAA last season as he recorded five sacks and a solid 30 tackles after missing the first two games and seeing limited playing time.

Dareus could play at any position on the defensive line but may be best suited for defensive end because he is only 303 pounds.

Robert Quinn may also be available for the Browns at No. 6, as the former Tar Heel has received a great amount of public endorsement from former Browns coach, Butch Davis.

The 2011 draft picture for the Browns seems to be getting cloudier by the day, as it is becoming close to impossible to predict what direction the franchise wants to take.

The good news is that Mike Holmgren and Tom Heckert led a very good draft process last season and the future of the Browns organization seems to be in good hands.

No, no, no
He's all but done. He might have some incredible plays, but will NEVER play a complete game and will rarely be interested enough to bother. He's lazy.
He's great for the Skins, but let's stop reaching for garbage on this forum. We're smarter than that here.

Saints land Shaun Rogers

Posted by Mike Florio on March 1, 2011

http://nbcprofootballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/s-rogers4.jpg?w=250

With two days remaining before the ability to sign a new deal expires with the labor agreement, veteran defensive tackle Shaun Rogers has a new team.

Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Rogers has agreed to terms with the Saints on a one-year contract.

Rogers was cut by the Browns last month. He has never been to the playoffs; he joins a team that will be favored to make the playoffs in 2011, if not the Super Bowl.

Don't understand this- why can a player like Shaun Rogers sign with anyone before FA begins??

Chadman is sure there's a good reason- but it just seems like all players cut should be made to wait for FA to begin- level playing field, etc...
