09:57 AM ET 02.12 | Browns general manager Tom Heckert indicated the team was weary of Shaun Rogers' attitude and unwillingness to practice. Rogers routinely did not practice until Friday, a light preparation day. He was always listed on the injury report with ankle and hip injuries, yet somehow was active for 15 of the 16 games.

Classic case of Munchausen syndrome ...

You know you're a problem when even Cleveland won't take you.

Because he is old and slow.....

Sounds like a future Washington Redskin to me.

What would this guy be worth to Dan Snyder? $100 million? More?

Stay the hell away from Dallas Bro.

Precisely. What is it with headcases at the defensive tackle position, wide receiver position, quarterback position. . . oh damn!

Not with Shanahan and Allen running the team. Shanahan isn't signing or dealing with a guy that won't or "can't" practice, ala Haynesworth. Rogers is too old and lazy and wants too much money, couple that with his work ethic he won't be a Redskin as long as Shanahan is the head coach.

Someone seems to have a lot of confidence in Shanny.

February 12, 2011  10:20 AM ET

skins have to get him even if its to get someone to blame next yrs foolishness on -instead of lookin in the mirror

February 12, 2011  10:21 AM ET

And through it all there may be as many as ten teams calling him?

February 12, 2011  10:23 AM ET

I'd welcome him back in Detroit, given he'd be willing to take-on a much lesser role at a much lesser contract.

Exactly, there are 10 teams who are interested in Rogers, and he left the Skins yesterday without an offer. If the Skins were really interested then he would have been signed yesterday and not allowed to visit any other team.

I have a lot more confidence in Shanahan than I do in Snyder.

An owner who's a cross between Al Davis and JJ and the most overrated head coach in recent years? Not much to choose from there.
