Lions | Rogers owes team $8.5 million in bonus money

ESPN.com reports an arbitrator has ruled former Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers owes the team $8.5 million in bonus money. The Lions paid Rogers a $14.2 million signing bonus as the No. 2 pick in the 2003 draft. They claimed Rogers defaulted on the deal when he was suspended by the NFL for violating its substance abuse policy in 2005. Any money the team recovers from Rogers will be credited to their 2009 salary cap.
