Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers

Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


Schefter is reporting we're in on Eric Wright and Brandon Carr.

I would like either one, would be extatic with both (if possible).  I think other than WR, our secondary needs the most improvement.

Re: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


I thought Eric Wright signed back with Detroit...guess not.

Brandon Carr at Carlos Rogers money would be ideal, but it will cost more than that.  Paying 8+ million for a CB will be a borderline cap buster. 

At over $30 mill to spend, seemed like we had a lot of flexibility...

Re: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


Thing is Brandon Carr is 25, so it gives the 49ers a young starting CB I don't think they'll over spend on a CB but I think that they're looking at not only adding depth but young starters.

Re: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


Hopefully Carr will want to raise his profile as one of the young premiere CB's in the league, what better way than to come be the #1DB on a top 5 defensecool if he is out of the price range how about trying to go after Wright and Marshall for the price of Rogers/Carr and add nice depth in the secondarybiggrin

Re: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


Hearing now that Carlos Rogers is about to resign, and at $7.3 million a year. Curious to see how the guarantees and everything else works out, but if it's literally that high, I'm a little surprised that they jumped so much over their originally quoted number.

But if it means he's coming back, I'm ok with it. I like him more than Eric Wright. Carr's intriguing, too, but I liked how well Rogers fit into the system and how he approached game prep.

RE: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


it's hard to say we grossly overpaid for him. that's a pretty fair deal IMO. it's not cheap but it's 4 years of a guy at his prime who played excellent football last year. it's hard to argue against this deal.

I like Rogers so I wont say I dislike it but yeah Im surprised about it. Didnt think we'd get him back. Nice to see IMO.

RE: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


Probably voidable after 2 years.

So after rookies, I thinks that leaves us with about $6 mill to play with...assuming Alex is at 10 mill per

RE: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


WR, OG, PR/KR, OLB, and overall team depth look to be the holes we have to fill. i feel pretty good about that, given how early we are in the offseason.

RE: Niners quest for a Starting Corner 


really? haven't crunched the numbers but i thought we'd have even more than that left. noidea

Very nice.

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


base value of the contract is 29.3 million, meaning rogers signed for, essentially, 300k more per year than what Terrell Thomas got, but also signed for a huge sum less per year than what Cortland Finnigan got, and also got a deal with a per year average less than he would have gotten under the franchise tag (which is what Brent Grimes is probably looking at).  I think this is, at first glance, a solid overall deal, but I won't be able to comment further until I see the numbers breakdowns, the per year average (ie, is it backloaded), the guaranteed money, and whether any of the deal is voidable (that would be tough to fathom, considering Rogers is 31).

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


I guess this means at draft time, it's WR or best player availble

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


Hey, quick question, have the niners cut Spencer yet?  Because doing the math, Cap savings from cutting Spencer + Roger's old contract (4.5 million) = Roger's new contract + 500k to spend.

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


I think we are nearly done with FA spending.  If my numbers are correct, we have $20 mil.  Rogers = $7 mil, Smith = $8 mil, rookies = $5 mil.  ie, we are done.  If Spencer's money is not included in the $20 mil, we still have Snyder out there.

I vote BPA at every pick at this point. Granted, the 49ers are pretty thin at WR, but I would say they don't have a screaming need at any position at this moment and it would be better to build the most talented depth possible...unlike basketball, football is as much about depth as stars.

RE: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


Rogers is a done deal!!! 4 years, $31 million!!!

nice.

now we need to re-sign Alex and Snyder and go after Mike Wallace and we're done.

RE: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


this is great news.. couple that with Perrish (well.. he has those "issues surrounding him.. but still could give us damn nice depth if he sorts himself out) and our CB core is looking pretty solid!

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


Awesome news. Now we need to give Goldson, Grant and Bowman long term deals and our defense is set for a while.

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


Not complaining but where are the Niners finding all this money???  Well, it seems like the Niners are spending a lot of $$$.  At least the defense will be all back together!

Getting Carlos Rogers back is the best news for me personally to date.  I'm glad Baalke and the FO are able to re-sign key FAs.

Trent Baalke sure knows how to keep the fan base excited! 

Question:  Does Randy Moss, Perrish Cox, re-signing team FAs count in the compensation equation for next year?

The next FA I personally want: OG Steve Hutchinson.  Well all depending on the $$$ as always.

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


i dont think the signings are for that large amount of money unless i missed something... noidea

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


I just hope he can catch the ball as good knowing that he is on a 4 year deal and getting paid. I really wanted him back, but Carr was also looking good IMO.

Other than the Rodgers contract, what money have they spent?  Brooks had about a 2.5 mil cap hit this year, Moss 1.75 mil, I can't imagine Cox getting paid close to those two.  I would expect them to have more cash since they went cheap on WR (as always).

Re: Updated: Niners quest for CB = Resign Rogers 


I really like this.  Happy for Carlos, both that he earned a nice contract with his play last year, AND that he recognized he fit best in this defense.  Let's hope he keeps it up!
