ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have traded Shaun Rogers to the Cleveland Browns for CB Leigh Bodden and a third-round draft pick in April's NFL draft.
The deal was announced Saturday afternoon by the Lions, one day after another deal with Cincinnati fell through that would have shipped the talented but inconsistent defensive tackle to the Bengals in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks.
Bodden is a 6-foot-1, 193-pound defender who has spent his first five seasons with the Browns. He has 208 career tackles, 12 interceptions, and three fumble recoveries.
Bodden, who was signed out of Duquesne as an undrafted free agent following the 2003 NFL draft, started all 16 games last year for the Browns. He collected 93 tackles and was tied for fifth in the NFL with six interceptions.
