Hot Routes 1.19.11: Beware of beards

  • A newer, faster, less sticky way to procure your beer at a football/baseball/rodeo/curling event? Sign me up and color me impressed. This is today’s must-read, by the way. Via Dan Wetzel at Yahoo! Sports’ The Postgame.
  • Former Lions WR Charles Rogers continues to have problems keeping his houses from not going into foreclosure. This time, he owes about $421,000 for a condo in Birmingham, Mich.
  • A circuit court judge in Tampa has ordered former Buccaneers DL Chidi Ahanotu to give up his 2002 Rams conference championship ring, as his ex-wife tries to recover from him $130,000 in legal fees. Naturally, this news did not make Ahanotu very happy.
  • If you believe trash-talking fires up the other team or if you think Rex Ryan is trying to take pressure off his players with his continued proclamations, Ross Tucker of ESPN.com insists you’re completely wrong.
  • Minneapolis Star Tribune columnist Jim Souhan writes he’d rather have Packers coach Mike McCarthy on the sidelines than Vince Lombardi. An … um … interesting perspective. Writes Southan: “Clearly, McCarthy is the better coach. But in the interest of even-handedness, we have to give Lombardi this: He was the better dresser.” This is what we call the “minority voice.”
  • I wonder if Brett Favre can try to hijack major league baseball as well. A link to the MLB Facts & Rumors blog. I also think those boys are taking a shot at us.
  • Apparently, there are quite a few different ways to spell Chicago (my old Cincinnati Post buddies could think of at least one). The Green Bay Press Gazette came up with another attempt.

Charles Rogers close to foreclosure

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

It has not been a good past few months for former Lions WR Charles Rogers.

In April, he was forced to pay back the Detroit organization $6.1 million of his $9.1 million signing bonus because of a substance abuse suspension in 2005. Now, he owes more than a million dollars on his mansion, and if he doesn’t pay it off, he could be homeless by the end of October, the Detroit News reports today.

The 5,100 square foot home was built in 2001, and he bought it for $1.3 million in 2004 (he had a mortgage of $1.04 million) in a ritzy part of town.

It’s been a stunning downfall for Rogers since Detroit took him with the No. 2 pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. He was hampered by injuries, and in his three NFL seasons, he played a combined 15 games, making 36 catches and scoring four touchdowns. The Lions released him in training camp in 2006, and he hasn’t been in the league since.
