For those that want something to talk about, or make fun of the Lions (you can never have enough fun with the Lions), or just plain feel sorry for the guy.

He was found passed out behind the wheel of his Benz while the car was still on.

Can't help but wonder how his career went to the crapper so quickly.

No, really, i don't know. I never followed the Lions much. I knew he started with drug issues and what not.

Apparently he also went to the Travis Henry school of contraceptives.

At least that is not drunk driving.

Didn't some teams work him out this preseason?

It was pretty funny how in his OTL story, they talked about how he came back in his 3rd year fat, slow, and out of shape. Hard to really fault Detroit that much because it's not like he was a bad pick, but just think about Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson opposite eachother, and it's easy to see how they blew it.


Dude smokes week every day, and he's lazy as hell because of it. As soon as he got hurt he didn't rehab the way he was supposed to, but honestly I think he was definately good enough to be a star in this league early on.


He scored 2 TD's in his very first game, and after 5 games he had almost 300 yards and 3 TD's, not bad numbers at all for the beginning of a rookie season.

He would have if he hadn't fallen asleep...? The car was on so I'm guessing that he intended to.

Sitting behind the wheel of a car whether you're driving or not can constitute OMVI believe it or not. Happens all the time.

As long as the keys are in the ignition you can get a DUI in some states.

He knew he was too drunk to drive so he just slept in his car. It was on for the A/C. He's really not that bad of a guy!

While that happens and isn't a bad thing, but it's still illegal in some states.

His car was in gear in a left turn lane. Seems like he was pretty set on driving.

You have no idea how happy I was when Detroit took Rogers and allowed the Texans to take Andre Johnson. Andre Johnson got me watching Miami football games when I was younger and he was a Hurricane.

It wasn't that long ago that ESPN (I think it was on OTL) had an interview with him and showing how he was trying to get his career back. Said he stopped partying and all that, and now this. Hilarious.

It's quite something what a couple of broken collarbones can do to someone's life.

lol I remember reading an article a few months back on how this guy was changing his life and trying to get his football career back on track.
