Former Detroit Lions Star Charles Rogers Dies At Age 38 [Condolences]
Very sad news. Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers has died, according to multiple reports. The former Michigan State football All-American was 38.
The Lions selected Rogers with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2003 draft. However,his career never took off as he admittedly struggled with drug issues.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder had just 36 catches for 440 yards with four TD in 15 games before he left the league.
Former NFL tight end Chris Baker confirmed the news on Twitter writing:
“Devastated to learn of the passing of my spartan brother Charles (Rogers). Spoke with his mom this morning. Please pray for her and his children. Please also be respectful of their privacy at this difficult time. Rip Chuck.”
No details about his passing have been released.
We send our condolences to his family and friends.
