Post Congrats to Shaun Rogers
This is from NFL.com


DEFENSE: DT SHAUN ROGERS, DETROIT LIONS
? Rogers played a key role on a Lions? defense that limited the Giants to 13 points ? their lowest point total of the season ? en route to a 28-13 road-win over New York. Rogers totaled four tackles, 1.0 sack and one pass defensed on the day as the defensive line posted 6.0 sacks in the victory. He also helped contain the Giants powerful rushing attack, led by TIKI BARBER, to 75 yards, its second-lowest output of the year. Detroit, which has now won three consecutive road games, forced five fumbles on the day, recovering one.

In his fourth season from Texas, this is Rogers? first career Player of the Week Award

Rogers has been a beast and as Brian pointed out "in his contract year." I wonder if the Lions will throw the transition tag on him this year?

He is going to get a lot of recognition in the league this year. The Lions made a great move getting him in the third round after so many teams passed on him due to injury concerns. :D

They better tag him. I wonder how much they will have to pay rogers if they do tag him. Isnt the rule he makes the most at his position if they do tag him?

I believe he would make the "average of the top 5 players at his position" so it will be good $ but not make him the highest paid player.

When your interior lineman is dominant...that is a rare and very good thing.

If I remember, John Tait had a "transition tag" placed on him last off-season, and was signed away from the Chiefs to the Bears. I don't know if we want to risk letting him possibly walk, so we would just franchise him. I don't know if anyone could tell me that there are 5 better defensive tackles in the game now, playing with the intensity that Rogers does. We can't let him walk, he is our #1 priority this off-season.
