Agent: NFL flagged
Rogers' drug test for diluted urine
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
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
