According to his twitter and instagram pages, former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers announced that he is now a part of the Kansas City Chiefs.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>my new home. happy to be apart of the Kansas City Chiefs ! ✊ <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/OTGG?src=hash">#OTGG</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BDS?src=hash">#BDS</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/JTG?src=hash">#JTG</a> <a href="http://t.co/svd0O40qRP">http://t.co/svd0O40qRP</a></p>&mdash; Da&#39;Rick Rogers (@darickrogers) <a href="https://twitter.com/darickrogers/status/553009643631689729">January 8, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Rogers spent the latter part of 2013 with the Colts and then was with the team earlier this year before being released after reportedly being arrested for DUI.  In five games with the Colts last season, he caught 14 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 13.7 yards per catch.  In the postseason, he made one catch for 46 yards - a huge catch that helped turn the game around in the comeback against the Chiefs (who he just signed with).  This year in the preseason, Rogers caught five passes for 86 yards and two scores.  He didn't have an overly impressive training camp, but he made the 53-man roster following preseason, though he didn't play in any games this year before being released.

He's a very talented receiver but he's raw, and he's had some off the field issues as well.  If he can get that under control and continue to improve his skills as a wide receiver (such as his route running), then he could be a solid receiving option for a team, especially a receiver-needy one like the Chiefs.  Hopefully, he can do that and get things together, because he's got a lot of talent.
