Browns comment on Rogers arrest

In case it wasn’t already clear, Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers’ arrest on gun possession charges wasn’t a prank.

“We are aware of what transpired with Shaun Rogers,” Browns President Mike Holmgren said in a statement.  “We will continue to
gather additional information, and until the legal process has taken its
course, we will reserve any further comment.”

According to Cleveland police, Rogers was found with a loaded 45 caliber handgun that was in his carry-on luggage.  No charges have been filed yet.

Guess you can forget about any trade offers coming for Rogers now.

  1. Why does this massive man carry a gun? His size, if used properly, can intimidate almost any man.
    Mistake.By.The.Lake

  2. Is he really that fricken stupid to pack a loaded gun into his carry-on luggage? Really???
    R-E-T-A-R-D

  3. I would have loved to have been in Holmgren’s office when he was advised of this.
    I can just see the muscles tensing & the veins popping in his face as he listens to the news. His eyes slowly disappearing in swelling quickly reddening flesh.
    He probably cleared the top of his desk with one swipe.
    Oh to be a GM/President/Head Coach in the NFL, it’s just a laugh a minute.

  4. Don’t comment on this story. Florio’s self worth is tied to everyone responding to his idiot posts.
    DAMN! He got me again!

  5. I am pretty sure it was not his first time on a plane or anything.. Did he forget he had a loaded gun in his bag? I am confused no NFL player should be that dumb.. Oh my bad some are just that dumb.

  6. sort of glad as a browns fan…
    no one is going to want him so he’ll stick around and maybe he’ll get a little humility and be grateful for his job for once.
    the man is a beast when he wants to and lets home this will further motivate him

    “Why does this massive man carry a gun? His size, if used properly, can intimidate almost any man.”
    This was my first thought as well. I mean, as big as he is, even if someone tried to stick him up, the guy would have to have at least a 120mm tank gun to put him down with the first shot. Anything less is just gonna make him angry… or hungry. And you don’t want to be around an angry… or hungry… Shaun Rogers.

  8. Does this guy still want out of Cleveland? That’s all i can think. It’s so ridiculous it almost seems intentional.

  9. When was the last time there was a story about an athlete getting assaulted/robbed in public?
    The thefts only happen in the athletes homes (IE Donte Whitner, Sean Taylor RIP), where it’s actually legal to keep a firearm.

  10. Obviously his IQ is 45, and he figured if he carried two loaded handguns into an airport, he’d double his IQ…..

  11. …just sitting here laughing my ass off at how STUPID these guys are. Come on man.
    Time to start throwing the book at these idiots. What situations do they expect to find themselves in?
    BREAKING NEWS…A hostage crisis with possibly deadly consequences was avoided earlier today if not for the quick thinking of an armed [insert athlete’s name here] who saved a school bus full of orphans and nuns from a madman. Film at eleven…

  12. Stupidity marches onward.
    WTF do these guys not get about carrying guns around. And trying to get it through airport security ? Holy crap how slow on the uptake can you be ?

  13. To answer my own question…Richard Collier. However, it’s still quite rare an athlete actually needs to carry a firearm.

  14. Is Holmgren making his team terrorist? Thsi si dispicable and Rogers needs to be suspended 8 games! Ben and Santonio never been charged!

  15. If Plastic-hoe Burress gets time for taking a loaded weapon in a nghtclub then Rgers should get federal charges against him also.

  16. I hope he gets suspended or dealt. Our D-line was far superior once Ahtyba Rubin took Rogers’ place. I’d much rather see Rubin play. The only thing Rogers is good for is blocking an occasional kick.

  17. Well then suddenly we heard the sirens
    And everybody started to run
    Jumping under doors and tables
    Well I heard somebody shooting a gun

  18. Wow, I had a pair of tweezers confiscated, and he thinks he can get a .45 on a plane? He forgot? Why even carry it in a carry-on, unless he had it there from his last trip on a chartered plane, like on a game trip. NFL better start screening them before they get on the plane or a poker disagreement could escalate……..

  19. Wow the players in this league are a disgrace…I can’t take this anymore hearing about how players are ruining the reputation of this great sport….and I mean honestly a loaded “45 caliber handgun that was in his carry-on luggage” how smart are you????….for players with such a great college education(sarcastic) they sure define how dumb you have to be to make millions of dollars and be set for life just to ruin what you got with a incident that only takes common sense.

    All that size doesn’t mean a thing if the other guy has a gun.

  21. In Rogers’ defense, I’m sure if anyone had taken the time to inform him that carrying a loaded concealable weapon onto a plane was illegal, he surely wouldn’t have done so.
    In a way this is kind of society’s fault… really an indictment of America itself…
    And I am NOT going to stand by and let you people BADMOUTH THE COUNTRY I LOVE!!!!
    Lemmee see… now where’s my ’45?

  22. long cool woman…
    /////////////
    she must have been the stripper shaunie went into the t&a bar dressing room to see, in daytwa

  23. Thanks alot dickwad. Now the Steelers 3 ring circus takes a backseat. Oh well, at least we’re used to this kind of shit.

  24. Man, cut Rogers a deal. He was planning on gone out on the town with Plaxico and Donte!
    Braylon was buyin!!

  25. “Mistake by the Lake”
    Hmm…apparently some people are still stuck in the 4th grade.

    You can’t possibly be serious with this comment, can you. You are being sarcastic, aren’t you.
    If not, and you’re serious, you are truly misguided. Shaun Rogers is an adult, college educated (?), and is responsible for thinking and acting on his own. It is his responsibility as an American adult citizen to be aware of the laws of the country he resides in. He’s a multi-millionaire who has multiple resources at his command to educate himself in numerous ways.
    If he is unaware of the laws of the country he is a citizen of and resides in and is convicted of breaking a law, the authorities should throw his fat ass in jail, or whatever remedy is necessary, to make him aware of how fortunate he is to be in the situation he is in to make millions of $ with the IQ of a squirrel.
    Society’s fault, an indictment of America, perhaps it is, since this fat *uck makes more per year than 20 school teachers who actually make a contribution to society, but that is no excuse for him not to know the law.
    To suggest that “if anyone had taken the time to advise him” is to just enable his unwillingness to take responsibility for his own actions.
    Donte Stallworth acknowledged and took responsibility for his part in killing a man behind the wheel of an auto, Rogers needs to accept responsibility for his actions in this situation.
    Hopefully he will do the right thing and will.

  27. This is something that I would actually like to see Mike Florio blog about. (believe it or not) With him being an ex-lawyer he can add more incite on what could potentially come of this legal issue due to him having some experience with the law

  28. Well at least getting caught with a loaded gun is better than going to bars and beating up chicks cause you’re too ugly to land them otherwise…

  29. @brewster,
    “Oh to be a GM/President/Head Coach with the CLEVELAND BROWNS… it’s just a laugh a minute.
    there, fixed it for you. (-;

  30. If Plastic-hoe Burress gets time for taking a loaded weapon in a nghtclub then Rgers should get federal charges against him also.

    Plax was charged under NY state law, not a federal statute.

    You get the idiot of the day today. Of course that was sarcasm.
    ____________
    I didn’t see the person who posted the comment acknowledge it was sarcasm, did you?
    And if you’re capable of reading & comprehending which is questionable by your response to my post, I did clarify my comment by saying I hope he/she was being sarcastic, but if not….

  32. It appears Shaun has made what seems to be a reasonable choice in firearms for him. A man of his hand size and stature certainly can handle a .45. It wouldn’t be fitting for him to have one of those pussified .380s or 9mms. I suppose a .50 would be seen as ostentatious and a Desert Eagle would be hard to carry concealed, even on Shaun’s large frame.

    Easily the best response that I have EVER read on this site.
    Nice Work.
    HILARIOUS!!!!

  34. Everyone in Cleveland wants out of Cleveland. The Clowns suck and Mike Florio as a dirty BASTARD!! Florio, I hope you get bit by a rabid Easter Bunny this weekend. @$$wipe.

    Welcome to PFT.com. Have you seen a Big Ben thread yet? It’s full of funny smart people making hilarious comments and maybe even putting “rape” somewhere in his last name! Classic!
