Just days after the New York Giants said goodbye to veteran stalwarts Ahmad Bradshaw and Chris Canty, the team welcomes back three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, who signed a one-year deal with the team to secure his return for the 2013 season.
Rogers flashed some of his old potential in training camp before his 2012 season was ended due to a blood clot, he spent the season on the injured reserve list. The contract which was reported by the Jenny Vrentas of NJ.com, is reportedly a one-year deal worth $1.005 million, yet it is also a split contract to protect the organization should Rogers get injured again.
Rogers new deal includes a $20,000 thousand signing bonus and a $45,000 weight bonus as well according to Vrentas. His base salary will be $940,000 if he is able to remain healthy but if he ends up on injured reserve again, his salary would be reduced down to $433,000.
The 33-year old defensive tackle has played 12 season in the NFL, seven with the Detroit Lions, four with the Cleveland Browns, one with the Saints and one with the Giants. During his career he has registered 37.5 career sacks as well as 372 tackles, six forced fumbles, nine fumble recoveries, one interception and one career defensive touchdown.
The 6’4 340-pound defensive tackle will provide solid depth along the interior of the Giants defensive line if he can stay healthy and could turn out to be quite the bargain if he can somehow regain the form that made him a Pro Bowl player as recently as 2008.

Let me start by saying I know every inductee in this year's HOF class absolutely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. I wouldn't take it from any of them.I was simply very surprised when I saw that Michael Strahan was left out. I just knew from the day that he retired, he would be a first ballot Hall-of-Famer.That surprise resurfaced, recently, as I watched the Super Bowl...
The New York Giants announced that they released veteran linebacker Michael Boley on Tuesday.
I get into a bad mood every time I hear this guy's name. However, if you can not beat them, join them. Or pay them enough to join you. The Patriots obviously have struggled on defense to get pressure on the quarterback and keep good coverage on the opposing wide receivers, thus they make quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez look like superstars. Chandler Jones provided a small spark...
