Shaun Rogers is hell-bent on his release or trade out of Cleveland because Mangina gave him the shaft and the training staff told him not to show up for the conditioning program unless he was ALREADY in shape, per ESPN.
I wouldn't think twice about trading a 3rd and a 5th for Rogers as we did for Stroud. Rogers played really well last season and would undoubtedly perform even better in Buffalo rotating with Stroud/Williams/Johnson. Stroud and Rogers would rival Williams and Williams in Minnesota for the most dominat interior defensive line in the NFL, IMO.
Think about it: that would mean on every single snap, Buffalo's defense could have either Shaun Rogers or Marcus Stroud matched up one-on-one with a guard or center.
Last year we added Kawika Mitchell and Marcus Stroud, our defense jumped from the bottom to the middle, so what happens if we add Rogers and say... Crowell??? And there's always the Detroit connection with Jauron.Then there's Mangina who will probably play hard-ball with Rogers and wait for him to hold out or something. I would even trade Kyle Williams staright-up for Rogers... then pray McCargo can emerge a little for depth at the 4th spot.
What do y'all think?
