DT agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Saints on Tuesday.
NewOrleansSaints.com: Welcome to New Orleans. What were your initial thoughts when the Saints called you to come and visit a week ago?

Shaun Rogers: “It was a positive response from the start. I had some things on the table and I was just weighing my options. I was encouraged that a team of their caliber was interested in me. I just wanted to meet them and see if it was a right fit for me.”

NOS.com: There were a few other teams that you were talking to as you were a free agent. Can you talk about what made you decide to join the Saints?

SR: “I just felt this was the best situation for me at this point in my career. I wasn’t really weighing what teams offered me or didn’t offer me. I just felt at the end of the day a team this talented was the best situation for me to be in to achieve the goals that I want to achieve.”

Full interview below.

I'm not thrilled about getting him for a few reason. One, why do you need a weapon in a bag. By the time you unzip it it's too late. Two, injuries. Three, he's fat and out of shape.

I don't buy this fat and injured bs, he's a defensive tackle not a receiver, GW will find a way to motivate him

They are still a couple pieces away but this defense has the potential to dominate the NFL, add that to the best offense in the league and I'll see ya in Indy

One of my concerns with Shaun Rogers is that he has somewhat of a checkered past. He was accused of sexual assault a few years back and had a substance abuse issue at one point. I find this somewhat troubling, but I'm also aware that Sean Payton has ZERO tolerance for "off field issues." Maybe being with the Saints will be a stabilizing influence for him.

Luckily for us New Orleans is a town with few distractions...

In all seriousness I am very excited about Rogers, he's a tremendous talent and fills a need.

There have been a few other guys known for inappropriate behavior and they stayed on their best behavior with the Saints. Hopefully he will too or his stay will be short lived. And here's to an offseason of getting in shape and being ready to do your job come August/September.
