Trying to keep up with former Lions first round picks who don't pan out? It's a tough job following so many. Fortunately, we do get an update on Charles Rogers.
April 13, NJ.com: Former Lions WR Charles Rogers is visiting the Giants today. The troubled former No. 2 overall pick was out of the league all last season after being cut by Detroit in early September. His three-year stint with the Lions included two broken collarbones and a suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
It's unclear at this point if the Giants are simply doing their due diligence or planning on offering Rogers a contract. I guess it all depends on how well he works out today. If he runs a 4.8 40-yard dash (as he reportedly did during a recent workout with the Chiefs), I doubt the Giants will start clearing a locker for him. And even if he scorches the FieldTurf, I wouldn't expect an offer much higher than a 1-year minimum contract.
i think if he can work out well and get himself a contract, state fans will be obligated to watch every single lions game this year (Burress and Rogers)
