Detroit Lions Have No Interest In Shaun Rogers

When defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was released by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month, immediately talk began amongst fans about him possibly returning to Detroit. It never seemed likely that Rogers would end up back on the Lions, but at the very least it was something to consider with not much else going on at the time.

After what Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said to reporters earlier today, it's safe to say that the door on a reunion with Rogers is completely closed. Mayhew made it clear that the Lions have no interest in signing Rogers, although he wishes things had worked out back when the defensive tackle was originally with the team.

"I like Shaun and I wish things had been a little different,'' Mayhew said. "I wish that when he was here, we could've worked things out and found a way to keep Shaun Rogers here. Locked ourselves in a room and talked it through and figured it all out. I wish it had gone a different way but it's a different time now. Nothing against him personally, but it's a different time for our franchise right now, we're in a different place.''

With the Lions' defensive tackle depth in very good shape, the chances of Rogers ending up in Detroit were slim from the start. Considering the salary he reportedly is commanding, it comes as no surprise that the Lions are not interested in bringing Rogers back to Detroit.
