Shaun Rogers arrested for gun possession at airport

WOIO-TV in Cleveland is reporting that Browns’ defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was arrested on Thursday for gun possession at Hopkins airport in Cleveland. The Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms the report.

19 Action News has learn Cleveland Browns Defensive lineman Shaun Rogers has been arrested at Hopkins airport with a gun.

It happened as the NFL’er was about to board a flight around 12:30PM Thursday afternoon. The gun was discovered in a bag. Apparently, Rogers told officers he forgot the gun was in there.

No further details are available at this time.

Sometimes I forget that I have a liquid that’s too big when walking through security and authorities have to confiscate it. But I’m pretty sure that I would remember if I had a freaking weapon in my bag. I’m sure Rogers wasn’t going to use it on the plane, but if he’s careless enough to forget that he’s traveling with a gun, then he shouldn’t own one in the first place.

There was some speculation that the Browns might try to trade Rogers this offseason, but they recently admitted that they were inclined to keep the DT unless they were made an offer that they couldn’t refuse. Whether or not they wanted to trade him, they can’t now after this incident.
