One of the biggest priorities for the 49ers this off-season was to keep as many of their own free agents as possible in place, preferring to stick with the roster that played their way to the NFC title game last year instead of breaking the bank in free agency.
It’s easier said than done though, and with free agent contracts at an all time high, it’s difficult to get players to agree to stick around on the first day of free agency. That’s exactly what San Francisco was able to do tonight though, as they came to terms with cornerback Carlos Rogers on a new four year deal, worth an estimated $31.3 million.
Rogers, 30, put together one of his best seasons to date in his seven year career, notching 44 tackles and six interceptions in the 2011 campaign.
The move to keep Rogers in the fold guarantees that the 11 defensive starters from last year will all be back this upcoming season for the 49ers.
