The Detroit Lions — who haven’t had a winning season since 2000 and are 0-for-the-season unit this season — considered two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Shaun Rogers to be expendable.
Since arriving in championship-starved Cleveland, Rogers has been a model citizen, writes Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel, a former defensive lineman himself, gave Rogers the ultimate compliment Wednesday when he said, “a guy like Shaun comes along once in a lifetime.”
“You just don’t find guys who have that kind of size and that kind of quickness and speed every day,” Crennel said. “I’m glad we got him.” MORE
