Default NT Rogers wants out of Cleveland

As much as Eric Mangini has tried to change the culture in Cleveland, one of his biggest challenges now is changing the mind of Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers.

Rogers has grown so disenchanted with the situation in Cleveland that he has asked the Browns not to pick up the $6 million option-bonus payment due to him next month, a source close to the defensive tackle said. Rogers would rather be released after one season with the Browns, despite still being owed another $15 million in guaranteed money.

The Browns said Rogers hasnít asked them to be released.

Cutting Rogers would be difficult to do financially. If the Browns release Rogers, they would have to count more than $9.7 million against their salary cap.

Browns tackle Shaun Rogers reportedly wants off team, upset with new coach Eric Mangini

by Mary Kay Cabot / Plain Dealer Reporter Wednesday
February 25, 2009,

Browns Pro Bowl defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is so disgruntled with new coach Eric Mangini and the new regime that he's asked the team not to pay his guaranteed $6 million option bonus next month, nfl.com's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday night.

Schefter, according to a source close to Rogers, said the tackle would rather be released after only one season even though he's owed $15 million in guaranteed money. However, he hasn't asked yet to be released, the Browns told nfl.com.

Rogers is reportedly miffed about two off-season incidents in which he feels Mangini snubbed him. The first time, Mangini walked into the Browns' training room and didn't say hello to Rogers, the source said. The second time, Mangini and Rogers were together in the media room at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards on Jan. 23 and neither acknowledged the other. "

Ahh...it's so good to be a Browns fan! Ever since the death of AL, this organization has taken a serious nose dive.

The ManKok Era is off with a bang.

"Shaun Rogers wants out"

"New Regime lukewarm on Quinn"

"Browns willing to have open QB competition for 09"

I knew it wouldn't take long before Rodgers presence in Cleveland would cause every all you can eat buffet to go out of business.

Thats the real reason he wants out.

I told all my Browns fans friends that he would be trouble, they said he just needed out of Detroit.

I can't wait to rub this in thier faces.

"0.0" Cleveland is irrelevant like the Bungles.
