Lions | Grievance with C. Rogers rescheduled
Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports the Detroit Lions grievance with free-agent WR Charles Rogers (Lions) has been rescheduled for a later date, according to the team. The Lions are trying to recoup $10.184 million of Rogers' $14.4 million signing bonus. A clause in Rogers' contract said if Rogers were suspended for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, he would have to pay back his bonus prorated for the rest of the contract. The NFLPA contends the clause in Rogers' contract is unenforceable based on the collective bargaining agreement.
