Charles Rogers, a professional football player is no more. The player died at the age of 38. The news of his demise was revealed to the public when his friends and college acquaintances started expressing their grief on social media.

The Saginaw native was an exemplary football player in his High School. Alongside football, he even played basketball. He won  All-State honoree and a five-star recruit for his outstanding skills in football.

He has broken many records including that of former Spartans wide receiver Kirk Gibson and the school record for most receiving yards in a single game with 270.

Rogers played for Spartans from 2000-02. Then, he had 135 catches for 2,821 yards and 27 touchdowns. He has to his name the Fred Biletnikoff Award given to the top receiver of the university and Paul Warfield Trophy as the best college wide receiver in the nation. The Wide Receiver was recognized as a unanimous All-American.

Sadly, Roger’s NFL road was not paved out to be. He was able to play only 15 games with Detroit Lions for three seasons with 440 yards at his side. However, he sustained many physical injuries including collarbone breakage which gradually led to be one of the reasons he skipped out of the sports.

Also, he became addicted to Vicodin and marijuana which he claimed openly. Gradually, this went on while he was playing for National Football League as well as Michigan State.

Reportedly, the sportsperson had a sad life after his exit from the NFL. Since he was cut off from the team due to him violating the Substance Abuse Policy of the Lions. And he owed $6.1 Million of his signing bonus to Lions. But he had no resources left to clear the debt. 

Still, his health was not up to mark as he lost 30 pounds after his sports career. And he was further saddened by people who accompanied him in his fame not being there for him in his difficult times.

Conversely, he was a well-recognized letterman who could have received any scholarship in regard to his sports-playing skills.

The well known Wide Receiver was the second pickup in the 2003 NFL Draft by Detroit Lions. Sadly, his constant clavicle injuries led to his long breaks from the team.

The footballer was diagnosed with Cancer and was in need of a liver transplant. Though due to no immediate surgery he died of Liver Failure at Fort Myers, Florida.

We hope that the player’s soul rests in peace.
