New Oakland Raiders cornerbacks Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers only have to look across the bay to see their old haunting grounds as former San Francisco 49ers. The duo landed with the Raiders in the 2014 offseason and they both say it's a similar situation to when they first joined the 49ers, when they weren't very good either. The two can help the team with their experience in how to turn things around and believe the defense has the talent to do it. "Before I got there, they weren't good," Rogers said, via Jerry McDonald of the Contra Costa Times. "They always had a top 10 pick, were sorry, and the division wasn't really good, period." "My first few years we weren't as successful, but the attention to detail changed, the mindset changed and the attitude changed and you can see that here," Brown said. "On days like this at practice, the attention to detail is amazing and guys have been putting in extra work. You see guys standing afterward and asking lots of questions. That's how we started with the 49ers." "We've got guys, whether we were pushed out because of cap room or age, we've got something to prove. We still think we can play -- actually, we know we can still play. Things are happening. Me and 'T,' we're on the other side of the bay and we're going to make a change."
