Post Shaun Rogers to Saints...Best FA NT off the board

Saints land Shaun Rogers

Posted by Mike Florio of PFT on March 1, 2011, 9:26 PM EST

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.

Why wouldn't he sign with the Saints? It'll still be a dream come true for him, because he can still spend a lot of time at home. What is it, like a 3 hour drive? Except he's playing for a SB contending team. Still kind of pissed he didn't even get a sniff here...


P.S.

Welcome to the board.

Smart move on his part. He will get some good $ and will play on a contender.

I'm kinda pissed here too. What is it with these freakin small tackles that the Texans love so much? Our DTs are going to get blown off line again and it won't matter that we changed to a 3-4!

Been knowing Rogers and his family for awhile now and when I spoke with him last week, he was waiting on a call from the texans. Typical texans, they didnt even call. Business as usual.

The criticism is certainly of the knee jerk variety. And the Texans have earned every bit of it.

Yes they have. And if the Texans would have signed Rogers, there would be pissing and moaning about signing an old injury prone DT when we could have waited to see what else would be available.

While Rogers is a DLineman who's skills obviously aren't scheme-dependant to be effective, it's still surprising to me that a team which operates out of a base 4-3 has been able to sign him since he's been valued up to now most highly as a 3-4 Nose ?

Maybe but a one year for a guy who could be a complete havoc causing stud is an easy call. What is there to lose?

I'd agree with this if they signed him to 4 years and 20 million but the fact that a team got him for a year and that is all it took makes me think people would have been receptive to the effort. I wouldn't want him for a long term deal but one year..why not.

Charlie Sheen would call this..."Not Winning."

Per La Canflora NFL.com:

Quote:
Shaun Rogers turned down roughly $6 million from another team to accept a deal with the New Orleans Saints for about $2 million less, a source with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday.

The Saints announced via Twitter that they had agreed to a one-year deal with Rogers, a three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, but they didn't reveal financial terms. However, the source said Rogers will receive about $4 million.

Rogers visited the Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins, and he had opportunities to see other teams, but he wanted to join the Saints, who won the Super Bowl in the 2009 season.

Rogers, 31, is coming off the worst statistical season of his 10-year NFL career. He made just 17 tackles and had two sacks, both career lows, for the Cleveland Browns, who released him after the season.

Rogers was a second-round draft pick by the Lions in 2001 and made two Pro Bowls in seven seasons in Detroit. He signed with the Browns in 2007 and made the Pro Bowl again in 2008.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...e=HP_headlines

I would bet money the Texans were not willing to spend 6 million dollars on Rogers, and I don't blame them. I thought Rogers would get about 2-3 million a year, but it looks like his price was a bit higher than that.

One other thing to note is that both the Redskins and Chiefs, who were the other teams making offers to him, are both 3-4 defenses, yet Rogers signed with a 4-3 defense. That might have something to do with his decision along with the chance at winning a Super Bowl.

Sorry, not gonna blame the Texans on this one.

One year deal. Texans never even called him.

LOL. You can't write comedy this good.

I think CBS should replace Two And A Half Men with another comedy show about the Texans called Three Full Jackasses.
