Wasn't Parcells after this guy or atleast rumored to be interested bigtime before he was traded away by Detriot? keep a close on on this guy fellas... if he does get his wish by the Browns and is let go (for cap reasons) or on the trade block could be a darkhorse.
NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that All-Pro NT Shaun Rogers has grown so "disenchanted" with the new Browns regime that he's asked the team to not exercise his $6 million March option bonus.
The Browns deny Rogers demanded his release, but failing to pick up the bonus would make him a free agent. It would also cause Cleveland a $9.8 million cap hit. Eric Mangini has reportedly reached out to Rogers in hopes of changing his mind. The coach did the same in New York with Laveranues Coles, but clearly the Mangini-Kokonis era has gotten off to a rotten start.
