Lions fans who paid to see Charles Rogers play football (or not play football more likely) will never get a refund for their time and money.
Rogers’ former employer, on the other hand, may get some of their investment back.
The Lions sued Rogers Wednesday for $6.1 million, a portion of his signing bonus from the team. An arbitrator ruled last year that Rogers must repay the Lions, but clearly he hasn’t coughed up the cash.
Rogers has been in the news recently after getting rejected by the CFL because he’s still under suspension from the NFL.
Now we know why he was so eager to get back on the field.
