Cornerback Carlos Rogers won’t be going anywhere after all.

Rogers is about to re-sign with the 49ers on a deal that will average about $7.3 million a year, Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports.

That comes as something of a surprise because when the 49ers brought in cornerback Perrish Cox, it appeared to be a signal that the 49ers weren’t sure if they’d be able to come to terms with Rogers. The Rams were also in pursuit of Rogers.

Instead, the 30-year-old Rogers remains in San Francisco, where he signed a year ago and started all 16 games in 2011.

  1. niners are stock piling where their weaknesses were last year. WR and secondary will have a ton of competition come training camp.

  2. Just keep him away from Victor Cruz and all will be well.

    With this signing the league’s most dominant defense from 2011 is intact. With OTA’s, brewing coinfidence and a graowing nasty attitude, these guys are gonna win some road games next year.

    This defense is world class homey. Just ask Randy

  3. Fantastic for both sides. Niners avoid the absolute CB price melee that Finnegan just set off, and Rogers stays where he knows and can be effective.

  4. Of only the niners would sign a real qb they would be superbowl favorites.

    Also with Rodgers back the niners defense could have an all time great season. In the en Alex smith will hold them back

  5. Glad to see Rogers back. He’ll be a great option for the next two years or so while Culliver develops. Would also like to see the team continue to bolster the CB corps by signing Bay Area native Eric Wright away from the Lions.

    Combine this with the Randy Moss signing, draft Stephen Hill, Kendall Wright, or Coby Fleener (then move Delanie Walker to WR) in the 1st, a RG in the 2nd, and Marvin Jones in the 3rd, and the only real area left to upgrade will be at QB.

  6. Wanted to go young…But glad u back at a great deal. Niners MO nowa days. Most bang for they buck.

  7. @alldone Fleener would actually be better at WR than Walker. Neither are great blockers for the TE position but Walker is better at it. Plus with Fleener’s size on the edge with Moss you can drop Crabs into the slot

  8. I think the 49ers overachieved last year…Comon Alex Smith is still your QB…can you say ONE YEAR Wonder!

  9. Happy for Carlos…….as a true skins fan, I was enraged when Shanny broke his promise and let his contract drama basically run him out of town! He was our best DB and by far our best man 2 man corner, truly deserved this money 2 years ago! 49ers got themselves a class act
