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.
