Former NFL linebacker Nick Rogers, 30, dies in single-car accident

Associated Press

ATLANTA -- Former NFL player and Georgia Tech star Nick Rogers has died in a single-car accident. He was 30.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office says Rogers was killed about 1:30 a.m. Monday when his car hit a utility pole in College Park, near Atlanta.

Rogers, a 250-pound linebacker, spent four years in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins.

Rogers started 16 games in each of two years with the Vikings in 2002 and '03. The next season, he was with the Packers for 10 games, the Colts for one. His last NFL season was 2005 -- three games with the Dolphins. He most recently played for Colorado of the Arena Football League in 2008.

Rogers had 16½ sacks as a defensive end at Georgia Tech and was drafted in the sixth round in 2002.
