Position Change for Shaun Rogers?

Posted on: June 21, 2010 9:04 am
 
There are thoughts in Cleveland about moving Shaun Rogers from nose tackle to defensive end. The 350-pounder has spent the entire offseason rehabbing after last December’s ankle/leg surgery. Rogers, who rarely speaks to reporters, hasn’t made any public comments since his airport gun arrest in April.

The thinking behind the position change is that Rogers’s backup, Ahtyba Rubin, played well down the stretch last season and needs to see more snaps. Rubin had trouble holding ground early in 2009, but by season’s end he’d become somewhat of an anchor. He doesn’t have first-class initial quickness or the brute force to penetrate a backfield; Rogers’s dominance inside – and the attention it commands – has done wonders for Cleveland’s other defensive linemen.

If moved to end, Rogers would likely play ahead of 11th-year veteran Robaire Smith, who no longer has the stamina to be an effective starter for all 16 games
