The rough economy in Michigan has reached Charles Rogers.
Or the second pick of the 2003 draft has struggled to properly manage the money he received with his contract from the Detroit Lions.
At any rate, one of the biggest busts in the history of the NFL – as well as Matt Millen’s tenure as the GM in Motown – faces foreclosure, according to the Detroit News.
Rogers owes $1.17 million on his Novi, Mich., mansion and faces foreclosure Oct. 26, per the report. The wide receiver who has been out of the NFL since being released before the 2006 season defaulted on a $1.04 million mortgage. Rogers bought the home for $1.3 million in 2004.
Rogers was ordered to pay the Lions $6.1 million of the $9.1 million signing bonus he received because of a suspension in 2005 for violation of the NFL’s drug policy.
