49ers sign Carlos Rogers to 1-year deal

Cornerback Carlos Rogers entered free agency as a second-tier option behind Nnamdi Asomugha, Johnathan Joseph, Antonio Cromartie and Ike Taylor, and Tuesday, after those players had signed new lucrative long-term deals, Rogers inked a one-year contract with the 49ers.

The former Auburn standout was a first-round pick of the Redskins in 2005 and he never lived up to expectations in Washington. Playing opposite Shawn Springs and DeAngelo Hall for most of his career, Rogers was often targeted by opposing offenses and struggled with dropped interceptions (he has just eight picks in his six-year career; by comparison, Jay Cutler threw four to Hall in one game last season).

Still, at 30 he's relatively young, plenty athletic and has started 68 NFL games. The 49ers will likely insert Rogers into the starting lineup opposite Shawntae Spencer, where he will take over for recently released Nate Clements.

Rogers' one-year contract indicates that San Francisco wasn't interested in investing much money or time into him, but if he plays well in 2011 that could mean one more handsome payday in his future. If he struggles, then he'll probably be looking for another one-year deal next offseason. For now, though, he appears to be an NFL starting cornerback.

CSNBayArea.com's Matt Maiocco notes that third-round pick Chris Culliver will join Tarell Brown, Phillip Adams and Tramaine Brock for playing time in the secondary.

A nice pick-up by the 49ers by signing rogers to fill in the CB spot that was left vacant by Clements. It was also a smart move by signing him to a 1 year deal as well. Some may feel that the 49ers are taking a gamble on Rogers by just giving him a deal for one year because if he performs well he'll be asking for a big contract,but if he doesn't perform well the 49ers will just release him by season's end and either go the "FA route" or through the draft to acquire another CB.

As much as I love Gibbs, those 2 first round picks from Auburn were a flub at best. Some bad calls when he came back, picked up these two and a RB from Denver and lost Champ Bailey in the process. Now, that is a corner. Bailey and Green, ah...the good old days.

Its so hard to be a 49er fan now adays.
All this offseason signing is really making it difficult to be FAITHFUL to this organization.

This is GAMEOVER & the season hasnt even started yet.

As a Redskins fan, I won't sit here and say he wasn't a quality corner. He did a decent job, but he wasn't the player he made himself out to be. DeAngelo Hall may jump routes and look real bad sometimes, but that's what he's known for. Rogers plays soft, can't catch and relies way too much on safety help to do his job. He's not fast enough to keep up with the speedy receivers, and he can't stop the bigger receivers from getting up or getting position. He's a solid no. 2 guy, but he isn't the elite corner he tried to hype himself up as. 

Who knows, maybe he'll be good for the Niners. Just don't expect him to catch anything.

Someone called him a good cover corner and a good tackler? Uh...no. Im a Skins fan and have thought Rogers has blown since day one. Many were the game where he could have made a play to seal the game away only to botch it and there goes the win. Good riddance
