Troubled wideout Da'Rick Rogers has been released by the Chiefs before the team was to begin minicamp. Rogers pleaded guilty to a DUI in May and sentenced to one day in jail and six months probation. The 23-year-old was active for only four games for Indianapolis a year ago and did not catch a pass. He snagged 14 for 192 yards as a rookie. His production has indeed been disappointing considering he was one of the premier receivers in the SEC for Tennessee in 2011. But disciplinary issues forced him to leave that school for Tennessee Tech. One reason the Chiefs let him go is the emergence of fellow wideout Chris Conley, who has been a pleasant surprise in practice.
Chiefs receiver Da'Rick Rogers reached a plea agreement to settle a previous DUI arrest, according to ESPN.com. Rogers is receiving one day in jail and six months of probation. He was arrested in 2014. Rogers is expected to compete for a rotation spot this training camp.
The Chiefs signed wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, according to ESPN. Rogers has been a free agent since his release from the Colts in September following a DUI arrest. Rogers has totaled 14 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns in five career games -- all with the Colts in 2013.
The Colts released wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers on Monday due to conduct detrimental to the team, per the team's official website. According to FOX59, Rogers was arrested on a DUI charge early Monday morning. He caught 14 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in 2013 and failed to make an appearance for the Colts this season.
Colts wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, safety Colt Anderson, linebacker Jerrell Freeman, linebacker Andy Studebaker, offensive lineman Khaled Holmes, offensive lineman Hugh Thornton and defensive lineman Arthur Jones were ruled inactive Week 4 vs. Tennessee.
