Charles Rogers faces a second foreclosure

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver, the second overall pick in the 2003 draft and a poster boy for the Matt Millen era in Motown, faces foreclosure on a second home.

According to the Detroit News, Rogers has defaulted on his mortgage and owes more than $421,000 on a condo in the “exclusive” Willits condo building in Birmingham, Mich. Foreclosure is scheduled for Feb. 22.

Per the report, Rogers paid $610,000 for the unit in July 2003, three months after the former Michigan State star was drafted. Rogers defaulted on his mortgage for a mansion in Novi, Mich., last year. The Lions won a ruling against Rogers last year, ordering him to repay them $6.1 million of his $9.1 million signing bonus because of his drug suspension.
