The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that former Vikings LB Nick Rogers was killed in a single-car accident today. He was 30 years old.
Drafted in the 6th round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Georgia Tech, Rogers played 2 seasons in Minnesota and started 16 games. He had 43 tackles, 3 forced fumbles and 2.0sacks as a rookie and followed that up with 26 tackles in his 2nd year. Rogers also spent time with the Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins in the NFL and also played for the AFL’s Colorado Crush.
Our condolences and prayers go out to Rogers’ family and friends.
