Former UW star Reggie Rogers found dead

Breaking news from The Seattle Times’ John de Leon:

Reggie Rogers, the former University of Washington football All-American whose career flamed out amid legal troubles, has died.

Law enforcement officials said they were called to 2761 East Yesler Way at 12:47 p.m. for a man not breathing and apparently dead. The official confirmed it was Rogers.

Joyce Fuller, who lives on that street, said that she saw Rogers this morning when she was walking to get coffee.

“We passed each other this morning,” Fuller said. “He was just walking up the street.”

Fuller said she watched medics working on Rogers and overheard that he died of a heart attack.

Rogers had a stellar football career from 1984-86 at the UW, where he was an All-American. He also played basketball at the UW for three seasons. He was drafted in the first round by the NFL’s Detroit Lions in 1987.
