    C. Rogers has one gasp left?

    KFFL
    Lions | Rogers will get an extensive look Thursday
    Wed, 30 Aug 2006 06:17:24 -0700

    Terry Foster, of the Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz said WR Charles Rogers will get an extensive look in the team's preseason finale Thursday evening, Aug. 31. That's good news for Rogers, who said he is ready to go. Will he get an opportunity to show his talents? "I don't know," Rogers said. "We will see. If I get the opportunity, hopefully I will. If I don't get (the opportunity), I can't hang my head. I just got to keep my head up and move on." Martz said Rogers will get "extensive" playing time. "I'd like to see him make some big plays," Martz said. "We want to get him in there and see what he can do." Martz said the wide receiver competition after WR Roy Williams is heated and would not say what others have done to stay ahead of Rogers. Rogers is listed third on the depth chart. Rogers' thing is stretching defenses with his speed. He is one of the fastest players on the field, but the Lions have questioned his dedication and grasp of Martz's offense.

    I wish the article would have said something about Mike Williams status because both were on the chopping block a few weeks ago.

    The latest blurb about Williams, it appears he's safe for the time being:

    Lions | M. Williams will likely make the 53-man roster - from www.KFFL.com

    I just checked the depth charts on the Lions website.

    On one side they have listed:
    1. Roy Williams, 2. Glenn Martinez, 3. Mike Williams, 4. Shaun Bodiford and Devale Ellis.
    On the other side they have listed:
    1. Corey Bradford, 2. Mike Furrey, 3. Charles Rogers, 4. Eddie Drummond and Scottie Vines.

    NFL | Rogers working to get another chance
    Sat, 16 Sep 2006 10:57:39 -0700

    Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports free agent WR Charles Rogers (Lions) continues to train hard in hopes of receiving another chance from an NFL team. "I'm taking care of the things I can control," Rogers said. "I want people to know that I'm working hard and I'm ready to play football. I want to play football. It's what I've done most of my life and I've still got a lot of miles on me. If anything, what's happened has really [reinforced] how much the game means to me. These two weeks away, well, let's just say I'm hungry to get back."

    Call me crazy but I want to give him a shot.. As long as he can stay outta trouble I think he can atleast be a good number 3.. He can be another Koro maybe.. Minus all the trouble hopefully!

    Althought I highly doubt we would take a look.. I'd love to though

    You're crazy.


    No way in hell I want this guy on our team. He has trouble written all over him. We are finally on the right path regarding character first. Rogers would be a step backwards. No thanks.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Your crazy. Sorry, had to do it. I would be very surprised if he even got a glance.
