    Re: Vikings confident in their other receivers

    There's no way Childress will ever bring in Freddie Mitchell - he was run out of Philly where Childress was coach.

    I would only bring someone in if it was Branch or maybe Porter, because those are the only two that can really be #1 receivers. All the others would just put another body at a position where we already have lots.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    Among the available free agents are Az-Zahir Hakim, Kevin Johnson, Nate Poole, Chris Doering and Freddie Mitchell.
    I think I can speak for most Vikings fans when I say that I never want to see this guy in a Vikings uniform. That's an irony that I'm just not prepared to accept.

    I think you can add Freddie Mitchell to that list as well.

    What is the deal with Poole? I don't know anything about him....

    The Detroit Free Press reports Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli said not to read anything into the fact WR Charles Rogers did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 2. "Don't read more into it than there is," Marinelli said. "Just getting the guys work. Just trying to work each person and get as much work as we can." He also added, though, that every opportunity in camp is earned and not given. "Earn your spots. Earn your reps. Every day. Earn it," he said. "That's the thing, as a staff, we're trying to do. Earn everything you get, every rep you get. If you like those reps, keep working. You may get them some more. That's the message we're sending." Rogers, who is entering his fourth season with the team, missed most of his first two seasons with collarbone injuries, and then was suspended four games last season for substance abuse. He also sat out three other games in 2005.

    Lions | Kitna claims Rogers has been the most improved receiver - from www.KFFL.com
    Sat, 29 Jul 2006 01:25:51 -0700

    MLive.com reports Detroit Lions QB Jon Kitna claims WR Charles Rogers has been the team's most improved wide receiver during the offseason period. Kitna said, "I've said many times, he's been our most improved receiver throughout the spring. He was playing at a high level the last four to five weeks (in the off-season). Every day he was doing something that caught your eye on film. I think the expectation, as it is for our team and then for him individually, has been raised to a point to where now we know what he can do and it's expected of him every day. He's stepped up to that challenge." Rogers feels the team will give him a chance to start and he is looking to replace WR Corey Bradford as one of the team's starters. Rogers has been moved up to the No. 2 offense after working with the No. 3 offense in the last minicamp.

    Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers claims he's grown up and has learned to take responsibility for his actions. He said he felt better about his situation with the team and his physical condition than he had in a long time. Rogers reported at 195 pounds, down from the 210 pounds he was at in 2005. Rogers added, "You only can do what you're told to do. But right now, I feel good. I think my speed is there, and I'm ready to make some plays."

    Lions | Millen insists the team could cut Rogers - from www.KFFL.com
    Wed, 26 Jul 2006 19:20:25 -0700

    Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions president Matt Millen insists the team could cut WR Charles Rogers, regardless of his draft status, financial commitment or salary cap implications. Millen said, "I think we would be willing to cut anybody. I think we just have to be. There's realities of where we're at, but ... everybody has a chance to define what they are. Here we go." However, Millen praised Rogers' offseason work earlier and said he "made great strides." Millen added, "He was catching everything with his hands. He was running excellent routes. He was going full speed all the time."

    Lions | Word on C. Rogers appears positive; others have been negative - from www.KFFL.com
    Sun, 23 Jul 2006 18:00:11 -0700

    Tom Kowalski, writing for the Sporting News, reports there is some word that Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers really turned it on during the final weeks of the offseason workouts and he could become a significant contributor. Talent-wise, Rogers is the best receiver on the team, but his mental approach has been lacking the last two years. If he's on his game, loaded with downfield speed and big-play ability, Rogers has a chance to blossom in offensive coordinator Mike Martz's offense. The early part of training camp should be very telling for Rogers.

    Lions | Bly thinks team is ready to deliver in 2006 - from www.KFFL.com
    Fri, 7 Jul 2006 05:49:01 -0700

    Rob Parker, of the Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions CB Dre' Bly is tired of talking about what the Lions are going to do. In his first three years here, Bly was the optimist. He said everybody was wrong when many predicted that this club wouldn't win many games, let alone make it to the postseason. With training camp just a few weeks away, Bly has one last message for the masses: The Lions finally will deliver. He believes they finally have everything they need to win week in and week out. "I really feel we have the best coaching staff for what we have," Bly said. "Detroit really hasn't had an offensive weapon since Barry Sanders came here," Bly said. "And with Mike Martz coming here, I'm saying this, it might be the biggest addition offensively that we've had since Sanders." Bly believes Martz will be able to get the most out of the four young offensive players drafted the last three years: RB Kevin Jones and WRs Charles Rogers, Roy E. Williams and Mike Williams.

    Lions | No problem with work ethic for WRs - from www.KFFL.com
    Wed, 28 Jun 2006 14:26:27 -0700

    Chrissie Zavicar, of DetroitLions.com, reports Detroit Lions wide receivers coach Kippy Brown said he has not found any problem with the work ethic of his players. "(WR Charles Rogers has) been working hard; when (WR) Mike (Williams) wasn't hurt, he was working hard," said Brown. "I (just) think change is difficult. Changes occur in this business, and when you have a changing coaching staff, getting used to different personalities and different fundamentals of what's expected of you is hard; it's hard to change old habits and I think that's what we're going to do right now is get used to each other and what's expected of each other."

    Lions | Rogers realizing past mistakes - from www.KFFL.com
    Sun, 18 Jun 2006 12:07:15 -0700

    Greg Mancina, of mlive.com, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers attended a youth camp Saturday, June 17, and he fielded questions from the participants afterwards. A little boy up front, whose voice was barely above a whisper, asked Rogers about some of the mistakes he's made in his life. "I've made some bad choices," said Rogers, who last year was suspended four games from the NFL for violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. "I've learned, and now I want you to make some good choices." Rogers admitted he needed to cut down on his partying. "I just gotta smile," said Rogers, who worked with young pass-catchers in the south end zone.

    Lions | Rogers working hard to be ready for 2006 - from www.KFFL.com
    Fri, 16 Jun 2006 05:29:03 -0700

    Mike O'Hara, of the Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers is working hard to get ready for the 2006 season. Rogers recently bought a treadmill. The treadmill is an indication Rogers has recommitted himself to being a productive player. There have been hints of late from inside the Lions organization Rogers has improved his standing. "Charles is going to be fine," Mike Martz, the new offensive coordinator, said one day last week. "A lot of people could have quit and folded. It's not going to happen. I'm not going to quit, and I'm not going to fold," said Rogers. Rogers has his weight down to 202 pounds, about eight pounds lighter than last season. Rogers also knows this: It isn't what he says that will define his role with the Lions. Many people, including those close to the organization, thought he was finished as a Lion. "I just died and came back," Rogers said. "It's life after death. I went to hell and came back."

    Lions | Rogers’ career heading where? - from www.KFFL.com
    Sun, 4 Jun 2006 18:18:05 -0700

    Greg Johnson, of mlive.com, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers said all the right things after the team's minicamp. "I'm here man, and it's time for football," he said. "I'm here, and one thing about it, I'm excited. You know, I think I'm going to get a fair opportunity, and that's all I need. I'm going to do the rest." Of the many questions surrounding this franchise with a new coaching staff and yet another new direction, the status of Rogers is among the most compelling. "My day's gonna come," Rogers said. "It's gonna come, and when it comes, it's gonna be beautiful." Rogers career, to this point, has not come close to matching the high expectations the team had for him. Rogers wants to forge ahead. He's thinking clean slate. He isn't dwelling on what happened to QB Joey Harrington, or what has happened to his career. "Charles has made a big, big jump here in the last four or five days," offensive coordinator Mike Martz said after the second day of mini-camp work this week. "I'm very pleased with his effort. It's hard for him because this is different. He's going to make some mistakes mentally and he doesn't know how to deal with that. But he'll learn. I think Charles will be fine." Rogers is currently working mostly with second and often third groups of receivers, and has made just a few spot appearances with what appears to be the first unit. For now, he isn't planning to walk into team president Matt Millen's office like Harrington and ask for a change of address.

    Lions | C. Rogers working his way into shape - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 1 Jun 2006 17:00:22 -0700

    Chrissie Zavicar, of DetroitLions.com, reports the Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers is working to get himself in shape for the 2006 season. "Charles is starting to get in shape – he's doing a great job now of getting in and out of cuts," said offensive coordinator Mike Martz Thursday, June 1. "He couldn't put his foot on the ground and change direction early because he wasn't in very good shape." Rogers is probably the most-watched receiver out of their big three and there has been speculation that he is being ruled out of the Lions offense. But Martz is impressed with Rogers and is showing no signs of keeping him out of anything.

    Lions | Wide receivers learning a new offense - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 1 Jun 2006 16:47:31 -0700

    Chrissie Zavicar, of DetroitLions.com, reports the Detroit Lions wide receivers have to learn a new offense in 2006. WRs Charles Rogers, Roy E. Williams and Mike Williams have been under a microscope since they arrived, but all that seems to follow these three players is speculation on whether they are putting forth enough of an effort or whether they truly want to succeed in Detroit. When talking about his offense, and specifically his receivers Thursday, June 1, offensive coordinator Mike Martz had nothing but positive words with a look of excitement in his eye as though Detroit should be prepared for an outburst in 2006. "They're very athletic, it's a good crew and they're learning the work ethic and they're willing and that's the biggest thing that I see. They're willing; they're not fighting anybody. They're open and receptive and trying to run what you're doing and trying to work hard." While everyone wants to know how the Lions wide receivers are doing, it is still too early to see all they are truly capable of. The fact that they are still learning the offense and still trying to get their bodies into the condition Martz needs them to be leaves them performing at a lower level than the talent they possess.

    Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli was asked about his impression of Lions WRs Mike Williams and Charles Rogers and he replied: "Good - even just their day-to-day work. They're here sprinting down the field and trying to get to the spot they're supposed to get to. The biggest thing here is, again, its how much information you can give these men; how many tools can you give them so when they get to camp they have some tools in their toolbox to go to work. And that's what you're constantly giving them: information, the details of your position and the tempo we want to play at each and every day. And then start building habits of consistency and hope we can be able to take that into camp with us."

    Fri, 14 Apr 2006 19:53:07 -0700

    Drew Sharp, of the Detroit Free Press, believes Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers has done nothing to suggest he wants to excel as a football player. After being suspended for four games during the 2005 season and poor work habits afterward, Rogers was asked if he had learned anything. He responded by saying he just wants to learn the team's new offensive system and play football. Rogers added, "It's not so much about trust as it is about believing. You've got to believe in me like I believe in you. It's more like that." He has met briefly with head coach Rod Marinelli and said, "We talked a little bit. I don't know about clean slates, man. All I can do is work and let them choose what they want to do."

"Hard work - coming out and doing everything we're asking him to do. I mean (he's) working hard and he's got talent. And the offense, the system, is very demanding. The coaches over there are very demanding. It's precision - the willingness and learning it and doing it over and over."

He said he also wants to shed the image that doubters have of him as a lackluster player in practice. "I just have to keep working hard to prove them wrong," Rogers said.

    Tom Kowalski, of mlive.com, reports just three short weeks into the Detroit Lions offseason conditioning program, sources said WRs Charles Rogers and Mike Williams have not impressed the new coaching staff. Rogers has been attending the workouts but the coaches have been underwhelmed by his attitude and focus. Rogers' alleged reputation for being a partier remains. Williams didn't show up for any of the workouts last week. His agent said he left because of a "family matter.' Williams is reportedly out of shape and overweight. Both wide receivers will need to improve their focus, or they could find themselves battling for a roster spot.

    Lions | Status of team’s grievance against Rogers’ unclear - from www.KFFL.com
    Tue, 28 Mar 2006 06:18:16 -0800

    Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports it is unclear whether the new collective bargaining agreement will affect the Detroit Lions' grievance against WR Charles Rogers. The team filed a grievance against him in 2005, trying to recoup $10.184 million of his $14.4 million signing bonus because they said his drug suspension put him in default of his contract. The labor agreement doesn't allow teams to put language in contracts like the language the Lions put in Rogers'. The player's union contends that applies to contracts and grievances executed under the old agreement; the league likely will contend it doesn't. Harold Henderson, chairman of the NFL management council, said it hadn't been determined.

    Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions WRs Charles Rogers, Roy E. Williams and Mike Williams are learning life will be different with new head coach Rod Marinelli. The wide receivers haven't been known for their work ethic and Marinelli and his staff will demand more of them and everyone else. "They'll do the work," team president Matt Millen said. "That's not the problem. The problem is learning to be consistent in the work, day in and day out at a high level. They won't be alone." So far, the receivers have been fine. Asked if Mike Williams is overweight, Millen said: "Aren't we all? Am I concerned about it? Not right now. The approach right now is pretty good."

    Mike O'Hara, of the Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers may be able to keep his full signing bonus because of the new collective bargaining agreement being reached. As part of the extension, the power has swung from owners to the players in the so-called "disciplinary" clauses. For Rogers, that means the Lions aren't likely to prevail in their bid to reclaim more than $10 million of the $14 million rookie signing bonus Rogers received as a first-round draft pick in 2003. The NFL Players Association's position last year was that the Lions had no right to go after a player's signing bonus and that forfeiting the game checks was the appropriate punishment. The union's position now is that "disciplinary" clauses in the extension, which are still being fine-tuned as negotiations continue, strengthen their stand. Rogers' agent, Kevin Poston, has been in contact with the union and said he never doubted that the signing bonus was off limits.

    Steve Pate, of The Daily Oakland Press, reports Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli commented on a recent meeting he had with WR Charles Rogers. "He had a chance to come by last week, and I was impressed. He came in, and we had a chance to visit, had a workout in, and my first impressions were very good. First impressions, that's all I can say. I had a chance to sit down with him and tell him about what we are, what I want, what I expect. And we just had a good conversation as we sat there. Now, what does that mean? It means it's a first step. That was good," Marinelli said.

    Lions | Rogers will return; needs to work harder - from www.KFFL.com
    Wed, 22 Feb 2006 05:56:38 -0800

    Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers will return to the Lions in 2006, team president Matt Millen said Tuesday, Feb. 21. He had better be ready to work hard. Rogers is relatively cheap to bring back. His lack of playing time kept him from triggering escalator clauses in his contract, and his base salary is $757,917 for 2006. The new coaches say they will demand more of Rogers and fellow WRs Roy E. Williams and Mike Williams.

    Steve Pate, of The Daily Oakland Press, reports Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz claims the wide receiving corps of WR Roy E. Williams, WR Charles Rogers, and WR Mike Williams will be made to compete. Martz said, "You look at these guys and see the potential that's not been realized, and you think maybe you can do that. That's the ego in you. The only thing I would say is they've got to compete, and we'll give them every opportunity to compete. They're going to be made to compete, or basically, it's going to be very difficult for them."

    I wouldn't give up a 1st day draft pick for either Rogers or Mike Williams.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    ...

    Among the available free agents are Az-Zahir Hakim, Kevin Johnson, Nate Poole, Chris Doering and Freddie Mitchell.
    I think I can speak for most Vikings fans when I say that I never want to see this guy in a Vikings uniform. That's an irony that I'm just not prepared to accept.
    I think you can add Freddie Mitchell to that list as well.

    What is the deal with Poole? I don't know anything about him....
    Yes you do.

    He was the Arizona receiver that caught the TD that knocked the Vikes out of the playoffs a couple years back.
