    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.

    Texans just doing that business as usual they do so well. They stand pat better than any team in football. Excellence on display at Reliant once again.

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

    That smaller quick interior DL philosophy sure is working.

    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:

    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.
