Free Agent Shaun Rogers Says He’d Love to Play in Houston

The Houston Texans may have a chance at signing the free agent manhandling defensive tackle, Shaun Rodgers.  Why?  Well Houston’s KILT recently interviewed Rogers who said it’d be a “dream scenario” to sign with his hometown team, the Houston Texans.  Rogers played high school football at LaPorte High in LaPorte, Texas.  He college football at Texas.   While Rogers has expressed interest in the Texans, the Texans have not reportedly returned any interest to Rogers.

Currently, Shaun Rogers says he’s in no rush to be signed. And while there are reports that the Browns released Rogers because of his age and his 2011 due $17 million contract, the Browns general manager has announced that Rogers was fed up with losing.  So far, Rogers has visited the Chiefs, Saints and Redskins.  Washington’s Comcast Sport’s Net reported that the Redskins are out because Rogers wants too much money. NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora reported four days ago that upwards of one-third of the league’s teams have contacted Rogers.

    CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN WHY THE TEXANS HAVE NOT SHOWN INTEREST IN THIS PERFECT FIT?

    Hey, when is the last time Houston had a good line,offence or defence?besides, they want to play ho-hum until he shows he is really available for less money. remember, the coach os offence minded.

    Another aging player with a huge contract. Remember Tony Bosselli, Anthony Weaver, Phillip Buchanon, Ahman Green, Jacques Reeves…? Please!

    The Texans could at least take a look at him. I went to school with his younger brother and his family literally lives 15 minutes from the Texan’s stadium. That has got to be worth something. He would get a chance to be close to home and end his career playing for the team where he is from. If he wants a ton of money then I agree that the Texans should probably look else where but bringing him in and showing a little interest would not hurt them any.
