  • Charles Rogers back in jail

    Charles Rogers used to have it all.

    Talent. Fame. Cash.

    Now hes in jail.

    The second pick overall in the 2003 NFL draft chose to be locked up for 30 days, with credit for 15 days served, instead of staying in an intensive drug counseling program after violating probation in a domestic-violence case.

    Im just going to do my 10 days, get out of the court system and try to get in shape for a comeback, Rogers said today in a telephone interview with the Associated Press from the Oakland County jail in Pontiac. Am I sad about the way my life has turned out? No, because I know the strides Ive made to take care of Charles Rogers.

    Court records show the 27-year-old ex-Lion receiver tested positive for alcohol and falsified records saying he attended Alcoholic Anonymous meetings.

    I was wrong, he said. Im not perfect.

    A judge in Novi granted Rogers request Tuesday to leave a sobriety court, in which he had to submit to daily drug testing and allow his residence to be searched at any time for nine months followed by nine months of probation.

    The structure was cool, but I had a hard time with the perfection that they stress in the program, Rogers said. I did learn a lot from it, and its going to help me get back on my feet.

    Who knows? Maybe well be talking in a year about me playing football again. Its not like Im 35. Im only 27 with fresh legs and a lot of life and football ahead of me.

    Rogers was arrested in September and charged with assault and battery involving his fiancee, who also is the mother of his four children, according to defense attorney Joshua Ben.

    The Saginaw native pleaded no contest to trespassing and was entered into a treatment house as part of his probation. In November, Rogers returned late to the facility after a judge gave him permission to attend a funeral. A drug test was given and later showed the prescription pain reliever Vicodin.

    Rogers then entered a diversion program.

    The Lions drafted the former Michigan State star in 2003 and signed him to a six-year, $55-million deal.

    After scoring twice in his debut with the Lions, a broken collarbone ended his season. In the next season opener, he had the same injury and his year was over. Rogers played in nine games in 2005 but failed a drug test, and was cut entering the next season.

    His career ended with just 36 receptions, 440 yards receiving and four touchdowns in 15 games.

    An arbitrator ruled Rogers must return $8.5 million to the team for diminishing his value by failing the drug test, but he declined comment when asked if he has the money to pay the Lions.

          What a wasted talent. He could've been such a stud if he wasn't such an idiot/put in a bad situation.

              I really wish he wasn't so stupid I remember when he got cut I wanted the bears to sign him but who was a injury prone junkie on their team. I did see him being better then moss and to coming out of college I was truly jocking him. Total waste of talent
              One day i will be on the nfl sideline, maybe in a helmet or a headset. but it will take me to Canton, Ohio.

                          Ok if he is in rehab then he would be a junkie or addict . Sense weed is a drug and it ruins careers then that makes him a junkie.

                            let's not turn this into a drug talk.

                            i hope maybe in a couple of years he can at least be playing arena ball or something. so much potential just gone

                              Yeah nothing like multiple personality disorder to make you popular in the cell.
                              Is that a rash?
