SEATTLE, Wash. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There are some Lions fans that can likely remember the team drafting defensive lineman Reggie Rogers 7th overall in 1987.
An All-American at Washington, Rogers was considered a Reggie White-type athlete, and a can't-miss.
He never panned out on the field, and found trouble off the field with alcohol and domestic abuse charges.
Thursday, Rogers was found dead in Seattle.
He was 49 years old.
