    The Detroit Free Press reports that the Lions will part ways with veteran defensive tackle Shaun Rogers.
    Per the Free Press, Rogers will be traded or released.
    Rogers, a second-round pick in 2001, is signed through 2010, at salaries of $4.25 million, $5.25 million, and $7 million over the next three years, respectively.​

    PFT Planet, we don’t know what we’d do without you.

    In response to the item regarding the contention of Chargers center Nick Hardwick that Pats defensive end Richard Seymour applied a head butt to a Chargers coach, a reader sent to us a YouTube video that seems to capture the moment in question.

    The apparent head-butt comes at about the 2:48 mark of the segment. ​

    Though the NFL has implemented tight restrictions regarding the interaction of players from opposing teams during pre-game warmups, Seymour looks to be right in the thick of the Chargers’ players, jawing with a couple of them.
    Also, the Nick Hardwick interview on XX Sports Radio is now available right here.​

    A reader tells us that Chargers center Nick Hardwick claimed in an appearance on XX Sports Radio 1090 that the alleged antics of Pats defensive end Richard Seymour on Sunday included applying a head butt to a member of the Chargers’ coaching staff.​

    We previously received an e-mail tip making that same claim, and it appeared to have been written by a Chargers player. But we couldn’t corroborate the contention, so we left it alone.​

    Hardwick publicly called out Seymour after Sunday’s game, claiming that Seymour was engaged in dirty tactics.​

    Moments ago, we called the station to confirm that the allegation had been made by Hardwick (wow, real journalistic work), and we were told that the podcast containing the accusation will be posted within the hour. The XX Sports Radio audio vault is right here.​

    Rogers to Miami?

    Rogers to Washington?

    and yea seymour looked like he was yelling at the coach, not sure about a head butt though.

    not that we needed that video to know it but the pats are not the classy group of guys everyone thinks they are, but they keep winning so it is all pushed to the side just like every other great player that was a tool.

    Rogers to Jenny Craig?

    I think Shaun Rogers might be my most hated player in the NFL. What a waste he is. I don't know how he can look his teammates in the eye when he can't even play during critical stretches of the game because he's off on the sideline sucking wind. Give me Rodney Harrison any day over Shaun Rogers.

    That's one big dude. If his head was screwed on tightly enough, i'd love him here. But would he be a lazy bum here? Probably, who knows..

    He would probably be worse in Dallas. It would be a homecoming being back in Texas and that may make him lazier. Unless his former teammate Leonard Davis can keep him in line. My fear is that Rogers' poor attitude may rub off on Davis who has underachieved before.

    It would be funny if the skins gave up a first day pick for him.

    he could be a perfect reclamation project for sporano down there in miami.

    That was Wilfork, not Seymour who poked Jacobs in they eye. I can't really tell from that angle if he actually makes contact with the coach. I would think that on a cold day such as it was that a small metal bar hitting the coaches head/face would cause a bigger reaction from the coach.

    Either way, it's pretty juvenile to be trying to intimidate a smaller, old man. (Just guessing on the age.)

    What does it matter if a Patriot player committed a dirty act? They are exempt from punishment anyway.

    That was so awesome when Hardwick called out Seymour.

    These guys are dirty cheapshotters who get away with it because they're the media darlings. It's totally disgusting. More guys need to do like Hardwick and shine the flashlight on that dark corner full of roaches.
