When cornerback Carlos Rogers finally became an unrestricted free agent in 2011, after being restricted in 2010 with five years of service, he signed a one-year deal in the hopes of getting another crack at a bigger payday in 2012.

He got one.

Per a league source, Rogers has agreed to terms on a four-year deal with a base value of $29.3 million.  The contract can be worth as much as $31.3 million.

The overall package for Rogers, 31, is slightly above the contract signed in 2011 by Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor.

    Nice now we got everyone that starts back on defense, now lets get some depth, more WR, and peyton

    I think this only happened cuz Morgan left, and I…for 1, am fine with it. Better deal than Finnegan. Morgan leaving left some room in the cap they expected to use, might as well stockpile corners. I expect to see a heavy wide receiver draft (2 picks). I’m also afraid to say giving Rogers that money may prevent them from taking a run at Wallace.

    Time to go get Mike Wallace.

    I was wondering what they were planning to use that cap space on if they didn’t want any big free agents. Looks like they’ll take care of their own which is a grest thing when you have a core of players this good.

    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.

    Add Mike Wallace, Hutchison or Grubbs or Nicks, draft another wr-and here we go.

    I love Chris culliver hoping he starts opposite of Rogers nice depth at the position now sign mike Wallace or draft big 6’4 stephon hill. Remember Calvin Johnson came out of GT

    Youre not getting mike wallace. You already signed one wr who only runs 9 routes, why spend a 1st rounder on another?

  9. gmemm says: Mar 13, 2012 11:43 PM

    9 ers are a one year wounder will falter this year

    Wow, all 11 starting players of one of the top defenses in the league are returning together with another year in the same system.

    This does not happen much, it could be a very special group. The offenses they play against this upcoming season will certainly test them.

    So did D. Thomas…. gotta like our odds of taking a flyer there but I got a gut feeling he won’t drop to #30

    Careful what you wish for San Fran. For your sake I hope last year was not a contract year aberration when if comes to holding onto the INT’s. He can cover but has stone hands.

  14. bigjd says: Mar 14, 2012 6:33 AM

    Now he’ll start dropping INT’s again.

  15. ronaldmexico says: Mar 14, 2012 12:32 PM

    It will be interesting to see how much is guaranteed and payable in the first few years. Hopefully for the 49ers he will play like he did in 2011 rather than his earlier years.

    Rogers won’t go back to dropping passes this year, do you know why? Of course you don’t. It’s because he had Lasik surgery to improve his eyesight when he got here last season. You think that’s just a coincidence?
