Former Michigan State football All-American and Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers has died.

The Saginaw native was 38.

Former coach Don Durrett said Rogers, who played football for him at Saginaw High, said he has heard from a number of former players that Rogers died overnight.

“I’ll tell you, he was — and I’m including Flint, too, since I coached at Flint Northern all those years — he’s the best athlete I ever seen. I mean, honestly,” Durett told the Free Press. “We’re talking about basketball, football and track together. He could have had a scholarship in all three sports. That’s how good. … I haven’t seen nobody that fast that could do it all. He was just a blessed athlete that could do it all.”

Rogers, a five-star high school recruit, played for Bobby Williams at MSU from 2000-02. He finished with 2,821 yards on 135 catches with 27 touchdowns in two seasons before entering the NFL draft.
