San Francisco cornerback Carlos Rogers said he was happy for his teammate, linebacker Ahmad Brooks, after the team announced that it has re-signed Brooks to a six-year contract. And then Rogers said he hopes he’s next.
“That’s good. I’m happy for him. It’s surprising but get what you can get. He’s a big-time player for this team,” Rogers said of Brooks on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via the Mercury News. “I’m hoping we get something done so I don’t test free agency.”
Rogers signed a one-year, $4.25 million contract last year and said he believes that a season in which he started all 16 games, made the Pro Bowl and helped the 49ers get to the NFC Championship Game should be enough to earn him a healthy raise.
“As cornerbacks, we know our market value,” Rogers said. “[San Francisco] is where my heart is at. They want me back. It’s a business, both for them and me. Hopefully we get something worked out.”
The 49ers and Rogers have two weeks to get something worked out before the start of free agency.
