    Lions Would Like Charles Rogers to Send Them a Check for $8.5M, Please

    ...Bad news, Chuck, you might want to get moving on scanning the want ads: the Lions want $8.5 million of that bonus back, and after three years, an arbitrator agrees.

    When [Rogers] was suspended by the NFL for substance abuse in 2005 -- his third strike under the league's policy -- the Lions argued that he triggered a clause that put him in default of his contract. At the time, the club was seeking $10.2 million -- a pro-rated portion of Rogers' bonus money.

    The Lions now must go through a few routine legal procedures before they can demand the repayment obligation and take action to collect. The Lions will get $8.5 million added to their salary cap next season, but only if they physically collect the money.

    He did make a lot of good decisions in his time in the NFL.
    I'm sure he was wise enough to save most of his bonus money and keep it for a rainy day such as this...

    Make Millen pay it. I am sure he owes the Lions more.

    The Lions are the franchise that reminds me of that "One Cousin" every family has that would take you to Judge Judy over a car you borrowed and forgot to fill-up before returning.

    They truly are the One-toothed cousin of the NFL.
