Re: Lions Charles Rogers Suspended


I agree that people can change. I also observe that often times they do not.

And if you are right - that he was trying the "Randy Moss method" - all the evidence isn't in yet, but it would look as if that means he ain't gonna change much at all.

Here's what I worry about in signing this kind of player even to a minimum contract. What's the next substance abuse violation penalty and when is it gonna hit? After a 4 game suspension, what is the next violation gonna cost? A season? If he's a starting WR and he is gone for a year, he won't be making any huge contributions to the team.

I wouldn't trade for this guy in Madden let alone real life.

Thankfully we're past that era of bringing in everyone else's problems.

Re: Lions Charles Rogers Suspended

You're right SC, it is risky, but for the right contract I think it's worth it. I'm willing to bet that somewhere around 20% of players in the NFL use illegal drugs. I haven't heard anything bad from him besides this, while one more would royally screw him up, there should be a way to build a contract that protects the skins, if nothing else have a look at him. From a talent standpoint he has more than anyone on our team (at the WR spot).
Best. Player. Available.

Re: Lions Charles Rogers Suspended

if we're hearing about a drug charge, that means its the THIRD offense... THREE... as in not the first time, and not the second. Its not a one-off deal, he now has a documented problem.

Re: Lions Charles Rogers Suspended

Does anyone officially know the offense? Weed, steroids, coke, etc? Is everyone speculating? Never really followed Rogers, but whatever I was into I would find a way to quit to possibly become a great NFL WR. He has great talent and potential, but so do many, many players. Question comes down to a Mike Sellers life decision. Wanna do the NFL or not? Easy. Could I quit my vices for a starting NFL job? I would hope so!!! We're not just talking fame, we're talking BIG MONEY!!!
GO SKINS!!! ^21^
