Former 49er Carlos Rogers Visits Raiders


Former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers is reportedly visiting the Oakland Raiders on Monday, as tweeted by Colleen Dominguez of Fox Sports.

If Rogers ends up signing with Oakland, he will be the second former 49er–and also second former 49er starting cornerback–to sign with the rival Bay Area team.

Rogers was cut by the 49ers weeks ago to open up salary cap space for new contracts owed to the likes of Colin Kaepernick, Michael CrabtreeAldon SmithMike Iupati, and others.

Rogers would be a good fit in Oakland–an experienced veteran on a team with plenty of experienced veterans–and, with relatively little buzz surrounding him in free agency to this point, could likely be had for relatively cheaply–though the Raiders have a lot of money to spend. The 49ers, by contrast, are pushing the cap ceiling and still have plenty of new contracts to give to the aforementioned players. Nevertheless, with Chris Culliver coming off of a recent arrest, the need for cornerbacks looks ever more strong in San Francisco. Rogers signing across the bay would definitely not help 49er fans feel better about their remade secondary.

    Better Carlos than Culliver. Reggie doesn’t need to sign any homophobic, brass-knuckle wielding road raging former 49′ers.

    This is where RM is truly showing true grit and savy. He knows that teams will be releasing some pretty good players due to salary cap issues and he can basically low ball and get quality players at a good deal. With that being said the only questionable move I feel that he has made was the acquisition of MS at QB and only time if a good move or not.
