Seven years after receiver Charles Rogers entered the NFL as the second overall pick in the draft — one spot before Andre Johnson of the Texans . . . doh — Rogers continues to periodically make news for the wrong reasons.
Per Robert Snell the Detroit News, Rogers faces foreclosure on a $1.3 million mansion he purchased in October 2004. He still owes $1.17 million on the 5,100-square-foot, four-bedroom home.
What’s amazing is that he still owes that much on the property, and that he previously hadn’t landed in default, given that he has been out of the NFL for five years.
Rogers has faced legal struggles for several years. And whenever the all-time biggest draft busts are debated, Rogers needs to be at or near the top of the list.
