The Raiders signed a former 49ers cornerback in Tarell Brown early in free agency and it looks like they may also have their eyes on another defensive back who did his recent work across the bay.
Coleen Dominguez of FOX Sports reports that Carlos Rogers is visiting with the Raiders on Monday. Rogers was released by the 49ers earlier this month as part of their effort to both clear space under the cap and rework their cornerback group.
Rogers shares a former team with Brown and, like many of the other new Raiders signed this offseason, he has a lot of NFL experience under his belt. Rogers is heading into his 10th NFL season and spent the last three with the 49ers. He started every game of those three years for San Francisco, picking up 146 tackles and nine interceptions while helping San Francisco advance at least as far as the NFC Championship Game each year.
Rogers hasn’t generated much other public interest since hitting the open market, which may bode well for the Raiders’ chances of adding him to their already large free agent haul.
