 BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Bulky defensive lineman Shaun Rogers didn't want to talk about his weight after he passed a physical and officially joined the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday.
If he can consistently get to the quarterback, it won't matter.
The Browns got Rogers in a trade with Detroit late Friday, one of several moves to overhaul their defensive line in the offseason. Rogers will be used at nose tackle and end in Cleveland's 3-4 alignment, teaming with newcomer Corey Williams.
Williams was acquired Friday from Green Bay for a second-round pick. The Browns sent cornerback Leigh Bodden and a third-round pick to Detroit for Rogers, who had come under criticism for his consistency and his weight.
The 6-foot-4 lineman is listed at 340 pounds. He declined to say what he currently weighs.
``I was born 10 pounds and 1 ounce,'' Rogers said. ``So it's always been an issue. But I've managed to play good football throughout my life. The past is the past. I want to develop a new reputation and just move on.''
Rogers was upbeat about coming to Cleveland, where he thinks he has a better chance of making the playoffs. The Browns won 10 games last season but failed to make the playoffs, scuttling their chances with a 19-14 loss in Cincinnati late in the season.
The Bengals were working on a trade for Rogers and had a tentative agreement that fell through on Friday, leaving an opening for the Browns to swing the deal.
``It gives me a new lease on life,'' Rogers said. ``Hopefully I can be a big part of the plan and go out there and try to be dominant and help bring a championship to the Browns.''
The Browns also signed receiver Donte' Stallworth to a seven-year deal on Saturday, giving them a No. 2 receiver to complement Braylon Edwards. Stallworth played last season for New England, which let him become a free agent.
The Browns will be his fourth team since August 2006. He started nine games for New England last season, catching 46 passes for 697 yards and three touchdowns.
``I'm excited,'' Stallworth said, on a conference call. ``Those guys won 10 games last year. They have a lot of young talent. I'm excited to bring what I bring.''
