Default Browns Shaun Rogers still wants out of Cleveland.

Report says Shaun Rogers is missing from Cleveland Browns off-season workouts
by Mary Kay Cabot / Plain Dealer Reporter
Thursday March 19, 2009, 11:27 PM
UPDATED: 11:29 p.m.



Shaun Rogers, shown last year against Buffalo, reportedly is not participating in the Browns off-season program. -- Apparently, the feud between Browns Pro Bowl nose tackle Shaun Rogers and coach Eric Mangini has not yet been resolved.

Rogers skipped the first week of the Browns voluntary off-season program, which began Monday, according to espn.com. Rogers' agent, Kennard McGuire, reached by phone, declined to comment.

Last month, Rogers asked the Browns to release him from his six-year, $42 million contract after what he felt were two snubs by his new head coach. Rogers was also miffed that his first contact from the new regime was a mandate to show up for the off-season program at a prescribed weight, a source said.

Rogers felt that because he played hurt the second half of last season and was in compliance with his weight requirement all year, such a command was unnecessary.

Rogers had asked the Browns not to pay him the $6 million option bonus he was due this month and to release him instead, a source said. But the Browns had no intention of releasing their top defensive player, a source close to the team said.

It may not be a sinking since Romeo got off of it.

Wow-it was just LAST YEAR when the Browns gave up a couple of draft picks for this guy. Now they're going to lose him too?

Too bad-Rogers is very talented, but poorly motivated.

They need to get rid of him, but get something for him.

But it's the Browns. They'll eff this all up...it's what they do.

This is like the 2nd team he's shown his malcontentness, unmotivation, and laziness with? Plus doesn't he have a massive contract to boot?

Who's going to want to trade even a p-pot for this baggage?

The Browns BIGGEST mistake was giving this guy a massive contract the minute they traded for him last year. They should have made him EARN his monies. Alot like when Brandon Lloyd was traded to the Redskins a couple of years ago for picks-the Skins almost immediately spoiled him, and we all know the results from there...

Well, I believe even Wade and Jerry said they're looking for a mammoth 3-4 NT(and want to move Ratliffe back to DE). Rogers went to UT...
