Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was back in Cleveland court Saturday morning, pleading not guilty to concealed weapons charge after the airport security found a loaded handgun in his bag.
The maximum penalty for the charge is 18 months. Rogers has already apologized for the incident, saying he didn’t know the gun was there.
I don’t know enough about law to understand how you can be “not guilty” by using the “whoops” defense, but perhaps Florio can explain it later. Rogers plans to fly to Houston Saturday.
His lawyer says Rogers will make sure to “check everything” in his bags before he leaves.
