    Default Rogers arrested for gun possession

    Our team has bad guys but we aren't the only team:

    =======================================
    Rogers arrested for gun possession

    Associated Press
    CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers was arrested Thursday at Hopkins International Airport for carrying a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage.

    Rogers, who had been at the team's suburban training facility in recent days, was stopped at a security checkpoint when officials spotted a loaded .45-caliber hand gun in his carry-on luggage, police said in a statement. He was arrested at 12:15 p.m. without incident and was booked for carrying a concealed weapon, a third-degree felony.

    No charges have been filed at this time, police said.

    Under Ohio law, a third-degree felony carries a penalty of probation to five years in prison.

    It's not yet known what Rogers, who lives in Houston during the offseason, told officials about the gun or if he was traveling alone.

    Browns president Mike Holmgren issued a statement saying the team was aware of Rogers' arrest.

    "We will continue to gather additional information, and until the legal process has taken its course, we will reserve any further comment," the statement said.

    A message seeking comment was left with Rogers' agent, Kennard McGuire.

    Rogers, a three-time Pro Bowler who has played two seasons with the Browns, missed Cleveland's final five games last season after breaking his leg on Nov. 29 against Cincinnati.

    Probably Mike Tomlin's fault.

    How do you not know this is not going to be found? What did he forget he was packing? The utter stupdity of this situation makes you wonder. If the popularity of football ever falls, it will be because of fans getting sick of these incidents happening again and again. Seems everyday we have some dumb *** NFL player doing something stupid. Is it the money or is it players seem to have gotten dumber in recent years?

    He probably always packs a loaded .45. ...He just forgot he was flying today!

    There are really only two ways that works out at an airport.

    First:
    "Did you pack your bags yourself?"
    "Yes"
    "Cuff him!"

    Second:
    "Did you pack your bags yourself?"
    "I didn't put a gun in there!"
    "Cuff him and cavity search him!"

    There's just no pleasant way around it.

    Rogers, who had been at the team's suburban training facility in recent days
    Rogers, who lives in Houston during the offseason
    ... A few things here... Did he bring the gun from Houston, and it just wasn't found?... Did someone give it to him while in town for "training"?... Why?

    I'm sure he'll be questioned about it, but I doubt anything comes of it. Didn't Barry Switzer get busted for carrying a firearm thru the airport security checkpoint several years ago?...
