    Lions get grievance hearing against C. Rogers

    Lions | Team gets grievance hearing against C. Rogers
    Thu, 15 Feb 2007 21:30:36 -0800

    Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com, reports the Detroit Lions will have a grievance hearing against free agent WR Charles Rogers (Lions) May 11. The team is trying to recover $10 million in signing bonuses paid to Rogers. The Lions contend Rogers breached his contract when he was suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams are forbidden from recouping bonuses in those situations. However, the team filed the grievance under the terms of the old CBA.

    I didn't realize that he was a FA.. If that is the case, I doubt he will be with the Lions next season.. They should be able to recover at least some of that 10 million for him breaching his contract..

    Just to make 100 people mad...

    I think the Vikings should seriously consider signing this guy.
    Think of all upside!
