He's just gotten out of rehab and is thanking the judge for turning his life around. We'll see. Meanwhile, it comes out that he is going to have to deal with other issues, including a rather serious one involving his mother. What is this with football players and mothers these days?

When asked whether the treatment went well, Rogers said, "Yes, sir."

"I'm really glad to see that, Mr. Rogers," Frank said.

Frank also postponed the trial for Rogers' uncle, Ronie Rogers, who faces the phone call and conspiracy charges.

A police report written by Michigan State Police Trooper Jennifer Coulter states that Rogers' mother, Cathy Rogers, told Coulter that Charles Rogers, Ronie Rogers, and Cathy's sister, Debbie Rogers, placed threatening phone calls to her after she called Charles Rogers about a potential danger in him losing his house. Cathy Rogers played the messages for Coulter, the report states, and in one of those messages, Charles Rogers threatened to “blow her mouth out” and said he was willing to do “the time” he would face as a result.

Coulter wrote that Charles Rogers then left multiple voicemail messages on her office phone, indicating that he wanted his mother to return $100,000. An arbitrator in 2008 ordered Rogers to pay $8.5 million in signing bonus money back to the Lions for defaulting on his contract. That figure later was reduced to $6.1 million; it wasn't clear how much, if any, Rogers has repaid the organization.

Ronie Rogers has told The Saginaw News that his sister “edited” multiple voicemail messages together and that he doesn't believe that his nephew was involved like Cathy Rogers told Coulter.

Frank said he would sign a subpoena to force Cathy Rogers to tell police which phone carrier she uses. Once Cathy Rogers does so, Frank said he'll sign another subpoena for phone records of the date the alleged threats were made.

I think it's more about the collateral damage of addiction than football players/mothers. We tend to hurt those closest to us. In my experience, the vast majority of top-of-the-list amends are owed to our mothers.
