  • Rogers to the Broncos?

    The same rocky mountain news that reported the broncos had interest in the jets dewayne robertson are not reporting that the Broncos are close to an agreement with the Lions to land Shaun Rogers.

    This interests me, becuase I was under the impression that the Lions would only trade Williams or Rogers for a proven player; who exactly would detroit get?? They do thave last years trade for dre bly working for them. I was also wondering why the NFL doesn't allow trade talks two weeks prior to the free agency period, because it seems no one obides by the tampering rules.


    "The Rocky Mountain News reports that the Lions are close to agreeing to trade DT Shaun Rogers to Denver. A deal couldn't be official until Friday.
    The terms are unclear, but this is typical high-risk, high-reward Mike Shanahan move. We think it's worth it. Rogers' effort and conditioning are suspect, but he's a Pro Bowl quality defensive tackle in his prime. Denver is desperate for some help upfront and Rogers is a quick fix. Its uncertain if he'll get new money as part of the deal. Feb. 25 - 6:15 pm et
    "

      I remember talking to um, njx, awhile back and commenting on how this seemed like such a Broncos type move. If motivated and in shape, adding Rogers really boosts the Denver defense and could let the youngsters develop.

      My guess is that it's probably a 4th for Rogers.

        I actually think we could be looking at 2nd or 3rd from the Broncos... Marinelli and Millen pretty said how much they wanted to dump him but with Rogers there is enough activity from other teams looking to improve their line that a 4th wouldnt suffice to make a move this quickly. For the Broncos, they would be getting a player that would be their best on the d line and although he's a horrible negotiator and overall person Matt Millen would probably wait a bit on the trade if it was only a 4th round pick.

            Hmmm.. I could've sworn the Donkeys just said they were committed to building the team through the draft. So, yeah, sacrificing a pick for an overweight Rogers fits the bill. Only, not really.

            I'm definitely not saying I'm surprised, though.

                      Honestly.... that'd be a dream deal. Many Lions fans seem to be content with a 2nd... but that is only if we know he is on his way out. A 4th is absolutely gross. 2nd + Dumervil I'd be ecstatic about.

                        A 4th is terrible value for rogers, i'm surprised there not talking to the jets about vilma, considering Marinelli said he wanted a proven player and not a pick. I would rather take the chance on vilma coming back stronger than ever than on millen picking a player that will be better than vilma.

                            I'd rather take Rogers putting half effort for a quarter of the season then for a 4th. Ugh.
