Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers will be placed into a 12-month diversion program for “forgetting” that he had placed a loaded gun in his carry-on bag at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport this past April. As part of this program, Rogers will have to complete a 10-hour weapons course and 40 hours of community service. The completion of these provisions will result in the felony charges being dropped. Rogers will also talk to children in the Cleveland School District about the importance of staying in school.
A 10-hour weapons course? How about one that takes 30 seconds? Here: next time, try not to forget that you brought a loaded .45 to an airport.
There is still no word on whether or not the NFL will discipline Rogers for this apparent misunderstanding.
