Shaun Rogers re-signed by New York Giants

Shaun Rogers - Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

The New York Giants have added veteran defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, who spent last season on IR with a blood clot in his leg.

The New York Giants today re-signed veteran defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, moving quickly to help fill the hole created Wednesday when the Giants released Chris Canty.

Rogers, a massive 13-year veteran, joined the Giants last season but the 6-foot-4, 350-pound run-stuffing tackle diagnosed during training camp with a blood clot in his leg and spent the season on injured reserve.

Rogers is a three-time Pro Bowler with37.5 sacks and 602 tackles (404 solo) in an 11-year career. He will be 34 next season, however, and has started only five games since the 2009 season.

With Canty gone, Rocky Bernard an unrestricted free agent and only young and unproven Markus Kuhn and Marvin Austin on the roster along with starter Linval Joseph, the signing of Rogers seems to be be a low-cost step in the right direction. If Rogers is healthy and still proves capable, he could provide at least some depth and help in run support.
