Thanks to the rules of the uncapped year, former Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers had to wait six years to get a crack at free agency. He could have another shot at the open market in 2012, after signing a one-year deal with the 49ers.
But he doesn’t want it.
“If we can get something worked out, that would be great,” Rogers told Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “My agent knows that I like what’s going on here. I want to be here. This has been great for me, and I would love to get something worked out for five, six years.”
Rogers, 30, has a career-high three interceptions this season, in only six games. Rogers also said that he and his agent has discussed the general parameters of a fair deal, but Rogers didn’t know whether any talks have taken place with the team.
He is making $4.25 million in 2011 as, essentially, the replacement for Nate Clements, who was cut by the 49ers.
