Giants Roster Breakdown: Shaun Rogers

Shaun Rogers - Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Shaun Rogers is next as we continue breaking down the Giants' 90-man roster.

Shaun Rogers is a veteran defensive tackle competing for one of the spots behind starters Linval Joseph and Cullen Jenkins in the New York Giants defensive tackle rotation. Let's look at Rogers as we continue our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.

2012 Season In Review

The Giants signed the three-time Pro Bowler prior to the season hoping that, even though Rogers is near the end of an excellent career, he could still help them against the run as a rotational defensive tackle. Unfortunately, a blood clot in his left calf landed the 6-foot-4, 350-pound Rogers on injured reserve before the season began.

2013 Outlook

It is tough to know what to expect from Rogers, 34. The Giants brought him back for another opportunity, but Rogers has not really been an impact player since 2009. The Giants are flush with defensive tackles, including second-round pick Johnathan Hankins, and Rogers is going to have to show that he is still a valuable run-stopper in order to make the 53-man roster.
