Unexpected Call at Unexpected Place for New Chiefs LB Rogers

This is a pretty good story.

Yesterday the Kansas City Chiefs re-signed linebacker Justin Rogers.  The team originally signed him on October 14th, held him on the roster for a week of practice, then released him.  On October 20th, the team signed and released him within 24 hours..

So, when he got the call yesterday morning, where was he?

In a tree in Basehor, Mo.  No, really, in a tree.

He had been hunting since about 5:30 AM yesterday morning and when he got the call from his father, "I shuffled down the tree and headed over here to practice."

Practice started at about 11:00 AM so Rogers made the trek from Basehor, MO.  I imagine head coach Todd Haley and/or GM Scott Pioli told him not to go too far in the instance something like this happens.

"Drove straight here," he said, "and suited up."

Welcome back, Mr. Rogers.
