Agent: NFL flagged Rogers' drug test for diluted urine


LARRY LAGE
Associated Press 4/14/03

DETROIT - The NFL informed star receiver Charles Rogers that he had excessive water in his urine when he took a drug test in February, and that is regarded as a masking agent under the league's drug policy, Rogers' agent said Monday.

"He had to go to the bathroom for them at 5:30 in the morning and with people standing all around him," said Kevin Poston, Rogers' agent. "He couldn't go, so they gave him a lot of water and 30 minutes later, he did.

"I'm very comfortable with this. This does not put Charles in the league's drug program. If they want to evaluate him, that's fine, because Charles doesn't use anything."

Rogers, who had a spectacular two-season career at Michigan State, is expected to be one of the top few picks in the NFL draft on April 26. Many believe the Detroit Lions will take him second overall, if the Houston Texans don't make a trade with Cincinnati to obtain the first pick to draft Rogers.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello could not comment on any specific player in regards to the drug policy but was able to shed light on the program.

"Diluted urine is considered a positive test under the program," Aiello said. "If a player tests positive for a banned substance at the combine for diluted urine, he is subject to possible entry into our program which would result in his undergoing frequent testing for some time.

"If a player tests positive for a masking agent, he would be evaluated by a physician whom would decide the next steps."

Rogers and Poston met with Lions officials, including team president Matt Millen, during a previously scheduled meeting on Monday at the team's headquarters in Allen Park.

"All that stuff is going to be between Charles and the National Football League and his agent and that's it," Millen said. "I had a lot of questions. I'm not going to get into what questions I asked, those are personal and confidential."

Poston did not let Rogers speak with the media on Monday because, "I'm his lawyer," he said.

"He needs to concern himself with football," Poston said. "He doesn't need to concern himself with any of this. This is just blown way out of proportion."

Rogers is regarded as a big-play receiver.

Before almost every NFL team last month at Michigan State, the 6-4, 205-pounder was timed in the 40-yard dash between 4.26 and 4.33 seconds, had a vertical leap of 37 inches and cleared over 10 feet in the broad jump.

Rogers, who caught a school-record 68 passes for 1,351 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Spartans last season, decided to skip his senior season to enter the draft. The Saginaw native set NCAA and Big Ten records by catching TD passes in 13 straight regular season games and 14 consecutive games overall.

In just two seasons, Rogers made his mark in Michigan State's record books, which is not easy to do since Andre Rison, Plaxico Burress and Muhsin Muhammad were Spartans receivers.

Rogers set records with 27 TDs and 12 100-yard receiving games and finished second with 2,821 receiving yards. Rogers and Burress, who Pittsburgh drafted eighth overall in 2000, are the only receivers in school history with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.
