INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Da'Rick Rogers thought he'd only get one chance to make it in the NFL.
Turns out, the Indianapolis Colts will give him another one.
The Colts signed the troubled but talented receiver to their practice squad Monday morning, giving him one more opportunity to prove he has put his troubled past behind him.
Rogers was considered an elite receiver coming out of high school, but wound up signing with Tennessee after verbally committing to Georgia.
Before playing his first college game, Rogers was allegedly involved in a bar brawl. He was eventually kicked out of school following his sophomore season for what he later acknowledged were multiple flunked drug tests.
Rogers landed at Tennessee Tech, where he rebuilt his reputation as a top receiver.
