Giants Add Depth To Defensive Line, Sign Tackle Shaun Rogers

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (WFAN/AP) — Hours before the NFL Draft, the New York Giants added depth to their defensive line by signing tackle Shaun Rogers.

The Super Bowl champions announced the signing of the 12-year veteran on Thursday.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Rogers spent last season with the New Orleans Saints, starting four games and making 22 tackles. He also has played with Detroit and Cleveland.

Rogers has played in 156 regular-season games with 128 starts. He has 504 tackles, 37 1/2 sacks, 27 passes deflected and an interception that was returned 66 yards for a touchdown. Rogers has also blocked 14 field-goal attempts. He was an NFC Pro Bowl starter in 2004 and 2005 and an AFC reserve in 2008.
