What a horrible situation for Rogers and his family. People aren’t supposed to be dying at the age of 38, especially former athletes.
I didn’t even realize things were so rough for him off the field. Rogers’ downfall from being a football star is truly a tragic story.
There’s really not much else to say. Rogers had the whole world in front of him, but he just couldn’t get it together in the NFL.
Now, it’s come to a tragic end at the young age of 38. What a terrible situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Hopefully, he’s able to find peace in the afterlife.
