Cleveland Browns

Holmgren believes Rogers' story

By Marla Ridenour Published: April 15, 2010

Browns president Mike Holmgren said he has spoken to nose tackle Shaun Rogers after his April 1 arrest at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport with a loaded gun in his carry-on bag.

Rogers spent the night in jail and pleaded not guilty to one charge of carrying a concealed weapon, a fourth-degree felony. Rogers told reporters outside the Justice Center that he forgot the gun was in the bag, which he'd been using for driving trips back and forth to Detroit.

Even if he is not convicted, Rogers could face discipline from the NFL.

Asked if Rogers should be on the team, Holmgren said, ''I talked to Shaun and how he appeared to everybody on television and after the thing, it was too bad, he felt bad about it. It was not an intentional thing. He made a mistake, clearly. We'll deal with those decisions at some point in the future.''
