San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers will become a free agent on March 13th and is reportedly looking for a four to five year deal to stay in San Francisco. He’s also indicated that he’s willing to give the 49ers a hometown discount, but he also wants to get paid like a top tier NFL cornerback.
Safety Dashon Goldson is also scheduled to hit free agency and will look to cash as well in free agency.
In order to keep both Rogers and Goldson, the 49ers may need to place the franchise tag on one of them. The franchise tag for a corner would cost about $10.8 million and safeties will cost $6.4 million for next season under the tag.
Losing either Rogers or Goldson would hurt the 49ers, but if they end up losing both players in free agency, it could be detrimental.

Michael Crabtree expressed frustration after the San Francisco 49ers loss to the Giants in the NFC Championship Game. His frustration was understandable, but his comments were both out of line and delusional:

The 49ers ended the season with three active receivers, one of which is now the least popular man in San Francisco. So it comes as no surprise that Jim Harbaugh wants to address the position this offseason.
Following the season, Harbaugh spoke about the issues at receiver and lamented the failure of Braylon Edwards. He stated “we were looking for that big stature receiver” when...

Now we know why Jim Harbaugh made all those nautical references at the end of the 49ers ' season. He kept up the theme even after the loss to the Giants in the rain. The head coach was prepping for his rounds at the often soggy AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tournament the week after the...
Matt Gonzalez, the former San Francisco Board of Supervisors president and now chief attorney in the public defender's office, was in court the other day - but not to represent an indigent defendant.

Teams that pick relatively late in the NFL Draft have usually had a great amount of success the previous season. The San Francisco 49ers find themselves in such a situation this season and boy has it been a long time coming for the franchise.
Another aspect of success, which is much more beneficial, is the fact that San Francisco might actually have the ability to go best player...
