Rogers signs with CFL's Argonauts

Former Wayne State standout wide receiver Nate Rogers has signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League as one of five players added to their training camp roster. 

A 6-foot-5, 215-pound wide receiver from South Sioux City, Rogers was a second-team All-NSIC South Division pick and earned Don Hansen Football Gazette All-Super Region 4 Third Team honors last fall after leading the Wildcats in receiving his senior season with 70 catches for 1,009 yards and 11 touchdowns. He ranked third in the NSIC in receptions per game (6.36), receiving yards per game (91.7) and touchdowns (11).

Rogers became the first Wildcat receiver since Frederick Bruno in 2009 to have a 1,000-yard receiving season, and closed out his Wildcat career ranked third in receptions (177), fourth in receiving yards (2,456) and first in career touchdown receptions (38). He holds the single-season school record for touchdown receptions in a season (12), done twice in 2017 and 2018. He was a first-team All-NSIC South Division selection last season.

Spring training camp opened Sunday for the Argonauts, with the team's first preseason game set for Thursday, May 30 against the Montreal Alouettes.
