If you happen to see Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers anytime today, be sure to say hello. This probably won’t happen since (a) the chances of you actually running into Shaun Rogers are incredibly microscopic, and (b) you’re probably afraid of black people.
Browns Pro Bowl defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is so disgruntled with new coach Eric Mangini and the new regime that he’s asked the team not to pay his guaranteed $6 million option bonus next month, nfl.com‘s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday night.[...]
Rogers is reportedly miffed about two off-season incidents in which he feels Mangini snubbed him. The first time, Mangini walked into the Browns’ training room and didn’t say hello to Rogers, the source said. The second time, Mangini and Rogers were together in the media room at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards on Jan. 23 and neither acknowledged the other.
Mangini is confident that he can smooth everything over with Rogers, probably by showing up at his house with Snoop Dogg CDs and mentioning that he has tons of black friends.
