    Apparently he was flying out of Cleveland Hopkins Airport and, umm, had a loaded gun in his bag. Bad idea.

    I'll add: What they were saying on the radio, but I don't have a link that says it, is that Rogers claimed he simply forgot the gun was in his bag.

    Jerry Jones just fined him $75,000.

    Yeah, he thought it was a 5-pound smoked salami he brought along to munch on as a mid-flight snack.

    Not sure why Shaun Rogers needs a gun. Guy is quite imposing. I can't imagine too many people would think it's a good idea to mess with him. Or, even share the sidewalk with the guy.

    On the football side, I guess this adds DT as yet another area of need for the Browns, now?

    Here's a longer story on it from ESPN.com, FWIW. Charges haven't been filed yet. Arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, which can range from probation to 5 years in prison.

    This is what's known as The Barry Switzer Defense.

    Just in on AP:

    "I'm truly remorseful, and I really can't put into words how unfortunate the incident is," Rogers said. "Again, I'm completely sorry."

    I don't really care about these kinds of stories. I can actually buy that he forgot it was in the bag. Tell me that you wouldn't have a gun if you played in the NFL today. I sure as hell would. It's not like he was gonna go hijack the plane.

    It's an airplane and a gun and even monumentally stupid people think, "hey, they have security at airports.". You don't forget about that gun, you think the rules don't apply to you.
