I say yes, because he's only 25 and he's from Houston. Not to mention that he's 6-4 345 lbs and one of the best DTs in the game right now. I think he'd be a great fit in either Payne or Walker's spot. Dont get me wrong, I like both Payne and Walker, but with their injuries and age we may wanna bring in a young powerhouse like Rogers. And with his size and strength he should drastically improve our run defense.
am i alone in this thinking?
I think it's a good thought and would be great if it happened, but they gave Walker alot of money last offseason. I'd be willing to bet the Texans re-sign Payne. So, it would probably be unlikely they go after Shaun Rogers. Expect them to draft DL help in the first round. Much cheaper.
