Default NT Shaun Rogers wants out of Cleveland.

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.

Now theres a former Brown I wouldn't mind seeing iin Denver!

If he sticks to his guns and gets out, i would hope DEN would be the 1st place he looks.

Isnt Gabe Watson a RFA?I think he will get at least a 3rd round tenure if he is.

There is ZERO chance that Cleveland will not pick up the bonus.

Yes, Watson is an RFA, and he's also ranked a notch below Grady Jackson in talent, so I prefer Grady. He only has a couple decent seasons left, but I'm in favir of drafting two NTs, Ron Brace and Dorrell Scott. Grady can end his career here tutoring Brace and Scott on 3-4 technique.

If he is released he should be our number 1 target. If they pick up the bonus and he still wants out, we should try to work a trade. Wasn't he traded for a 4th round pick? And the going rate for top D-tackles last year was a 3rd and a 5th I think. I would give up a 3rd and a 5th for Shaun, no question. Especially since we have an extra 5th this year

He would likely be better than the 100 million dollar baby

Wishful thinking... Even if he was released, which is highly doubtful, he is way out of our price range.

trading for him would be the best way to make a deal for him work.

$9+ million dollar cap hit this year if they don't exercise the option. He's not going anywhere.

Hmmm... I could see him getting traded though, and like someone said above, a 3rd and a 5th for Rogers would be a damn good trade.

New coach and GM. New way of doing things, so its possible IF cleveland releases him and he is reasonable about his contract demands, he should then be a Bronco.
