    Hmm, I think we should at least take a look-see. He had a down year, but I'd give a shot in camp/

    There's our future NT. Bring Rodgers home

    Rodgers and a draft pick solidifies the all important NT position.

    Lets see if the Texans are serious about improving their defense.

    Shaun Rogers would be a gap filling DT for sure, just don't know about the age..

    The Texans aren't winning a championship anytime soon anyway.

    I would settle for a NT that wouldn't allow 4 yds on 4th and 1. Like Garrard did in the Hail Mary Jags game last yr. (Not asking for much am I ?)

    Rodgers could do this.

    That's obviously not the reason the Browns let him go.

    27th rushing defense. 4.1 YPC, 129.4 ypg.


    With Rogers, we could've been
    13th against the run, 4.0 ypc, 109 ypg

    I'd sign bring him in for sure. He is a legit 3-4 NT. Problem is, FA will occur AFTER the draft this year, so we have to get a good NT prospect or two in case we cannot sign Rogers.

    Bowens (and maybe Barton) are worth a look and possible deal if they come cheap.

    Never happen.

    Assuming that's all true (Wikipedia, grain of salt) then he's not on our radar (if you can call whatever it is the Texans use to find players "radar")

    Edit: Wait up, I see a TE in there. Hmmmm......... Maybe we will get something out of this after all.

    Wow the year the Texans have one of the worst defenses ever teams release both Aso and Rodgers and let Bailey walk. Theres no excuse McSmithiak, not even the CBA. NO EXCUSE. Get it done, *IF* your serious about winnning.

    One of the reasons that Rodgers is being released besides the $5.5 million in 2011 with a $500,000 roster bonus, is because the Brown's new DC Jauron will be switching from the 3-4 to the 4-3.

    The Browns also didn't think that his limited availability following his 2009 season ending leg injury where he missed the entire 2010 camp was worth bringing back a 31 year old. His "leg injury" has never been identified by the team beyond "a severe ankle injury," but it would have had to have been either a ankle break or an Achilles rupture........neither if revealed/confirmed would fare well towards future trade value. Evidently, since he didn't practice all 2010, only to play on Sundays, his injury was significantly compromising his performance. For a 350+ pounder, this is something to consider before getting too excited about getting a planted tree stump.

    His old coach is now Dallas' D Coordinator. Bet they take a look.

    Players waived (or on the street to begin with) can be signed anytime between now and March 4. I'm not sure given his age, injury situation, and recent level of performance you'd look at him as doing much to shore up the NT situation anyway, but he could be signed prior to the draft.

    If for any other reason, for Special Teams! Sign Rodgers. Dude blocks at least one FG every year.
