Lions | Rogers knows his Detroit time is up

Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers knows his time in Detroit is just about over. "It'd be hard for me to believe I'm still here, just what happened in this situation," Rogers said Thursday night, Aug. 31, after playing one series in the preseason finale, a 20-13 loss to Buffalo. "I think my days are numbered." Rogers looked like he was turning things around toward the end of the off-season program, but Rogers couldn't keep it up. When the first depth chart came out, he was listed as a third-teamer. He caught one pass for seven yards and committed a false-start penalty in the preseason opener, then missed the next two exhibitions with a bruised knee. If the Lions cut Rogers, they would not take a salary-cap hit this year under the NFL's new rules. It is believed they would take a $3.275 million hit next year; something they could handle easily with the cap jumping to $109 million and then Rogers would be off their books. "If they cut me Saturday, hey, I just move on, man," Rogers said. "Find me another team and play some football."
