Raiders going for clean sweep of 49ers starting cornerbacks

The Raiders already snared one of the 49ers incumbent starting cornerbacks in free agency. Now they are going after the other one when they meet with Carlos Rogers today, according to an ESPN report.
The Raiders signed cornerback Tarell Brown on March 14 as a potential replacement for departed starters Mike Jenkins and Tracy Porter. Adding Rogers to the mix would give the Raiders yet another viable option, along with second-year player D.J. Hayden.
Rogers, who turns 33 on July 2, started all 48 regular-season games for the 49ers the past three seasons. He has started all but 10 of the games he played during his first nine NFL seasons, the first six with the Washington Redskins.
The 49ers wanted to retain Rogers, but they weren’t willing to keep him around in 2014 at such a prohibitive salary. Rogers was slated to earn $6.6 million in base salary and bonuses.
Releasing Rogers saved the 49ers $5.1 million in salary-cap room. The Raiders still have plenty of salary-cap room despite a massive spending spree the past three weeks.
Rogers is the kind of versatile player the Raiders could use. He has the ability to play outside or in the slot and he excels in any kind of coverage.

    I liked Moore he’s a good deep threat.. But WR are divas… Moore was already not happy Holmes took his spot during the season.. Not even making it up a beat writer tweeted it when they were at practice… Imagine if he gets next to no time with jones and djax and Streater ahead of him.. He sees the writing on the wall.

  • Marley Bob

    Hope I’m wrong, kid can play.

  • r8ter4evr

    I understand but what happens when we have no quality depth due to injuries, it just doesn’t make sense

  • SaintKaufman

    Be gentle fellas.

  • JV.

    Attitude issues.. Plus no one wants to let go his interview where he said he was gonna sleep on his day off and Streater said he was gonna study and work out

  • J Hill

    You don’t think he fell out of favor with the coaches?

  • Dakota

    Reggie will not pay him anyhow, so might as well trade him for a fourth rounder Reggie can waste.

  • RaiderCDE

    Raids have $13 million in cap. Signing Rodgers and a couple other vets b/w now and day 1 – lets call it $4 million – get 10 new players in draft/UFA – call it $5mill – should put them at over 95% cap spending.

  • Marley Bob

    It’s a 4 year period.

  • JV.

    We have Holmes, butler, jared green (ps) and Greg Jenkins.. He’s expendable but I think he’s gonna be good for a good qb Ala 2011 w/ Palmer.

  • RaidingTexas

    Sweep completed. Rodgers signed.

  • Dakota

    The temp coaches? Who cares?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I cached my suspicion in a non obvious way.

  • RaiderCDE

    He has way better hands than DHB – he had a couple bad drops last year for sure – including the one you mention – but he’s definitely a hands catcher. Raiders had lots of drops last year across the board – mainly having to play for 3 different QB’s

  • Return

    Let’s see: LV, LH, Ford, Pryor, Moore, Criner (probably), Wiz (probably) all gone. I know. People will say good riddance. They all stank anyway. But that is quite a young core to just toss in the trash.

    RM wants to build through the draft. Why are you acting like you thought he’d do otherwise? He’s putting together a solid team for now and next year and he wants to backfill and bring players up with the draft. He has openly said he’s not the guy that’s gonna build a foundation through FA. Why are you acting like you expected him to do that? I mean I get it if you want him to do that, but everyone knows he’s not going to do that. So if you’re complaining, that’s one thing. But it seems like you’re more expecting him to do something he’s said he won’t be doing.

  • Chino

    Solid defensive backfield. Lets get it

  • TrevJo

    tight end imo

  • RaiderReloader

    Get your pecker up lil guy

  • Chino

    Ready to compete for once. Just win baby

  • rudegruden

    Just read through some of the posts, I’m glad SnBG exposed himself again as a troll who uses multiple handles. He was exposed as mcfadden20 and had to create SnBG, fooling no one. What a pathetic clown.

  • J Hill

    Can’t see a clean sweep, so to speak.

    Sporano will be the HC if Allen isn’t.

    He’ll keep a lot of these guys.

  • JV.

    @RaiderTruths: My goodness he looks like my uncle. RT @RAIDERS: The Raiders have signed CB Carlos Rogers. http://t.co/uJouqiZhQv

    HAHAHAHA

  • kelley

    He is young, but not productive, 3rd ir 4th wr fir raiders right now

  • RaiderCDE

    They were at 74% last year – have to spend average 95% b/w now and 2016 to make it up. Bleacher report had a good right up.

  • The Big Banana

    Missed it. What did the pathetic troll do now?

  • JV.

    We have half the secondary of the Niners last year lol…

    hopefully our safeties can hold down the fort.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Sure. At first.

  • 559 Raider 87

    Beat me to it

  • RaiderCDE

    Rodgers and Holmes 2 ugliest dudes on the team. Dammmm.

  • r8ter4evr

    Ya it is a shame to not develop our young guys

  • Dakota

    Is thus an upgrade from porter? Way older right?

  • JV.

    That post screamed “casual fan”

  • kelley

    The “core” of back to back 4 and 12 seasons. Not worth keeping.

  • http://thebadtenants.com/ eternal pessimist

    DMoore flashed in his rookie season and made us all go HOW DID WE STEAL HIM IN THE 5th?!
    Since his rookie year, he has pretty much showed why he lasted till the 5th.
    He was scouted as the guy with lots of talent, huge mental lapses causing inconsistencies… he’s pretty much been true to that. Maybe Schaub can get something Moore from him.

  • BOKNOWS

    Ol BHP should show up anytime crying the Reggies signing more old dudes blues….

  • JV.

    I hope we don’t lose wiz… Knowing Reggie.. ugh.

  • PlunkforHOF

    Last time I buy a rookie jersey.

  • rudegruden

    Talked to himself about game if thrones. Dakota called him out. I’m sure a new handle with SnBG’s ideas will appear. He will run that new handle and SnBG in parallel to pretend its two different people. He’ll try to get away with it until he gets caught again

  • Dakota

    Soprano…..we must LIKE losing.

  • 559 Raider 87

    Better slot corner IMO and more reliable has started every game in SF last 3 years. Good pick up low risk, high reward. Id say our CBs are better now Brown + Rogers > Porter + Jenkins

  • BossKnows01

    Good signing, pro bowler in 2011, too bad it was with the whiners

  • kelley

    3 yr 24 mil or 5 yr 40 mil with 12 mil guarantee. Anything more, someone else can take the risk!!

  • RaiderCDE

    That’s 10 past probowlers signed this offseason. Not bad. Roster is improved across the board.

  • 8raiderreign8

    I’d rather have Rogers then the DeSean

  • JV.

    I guess Dave chappelle is our new starting slot corner.

  • R8drTahoe in SF

    Yes, secondary is lookin good… These guys played well for the Niners, but that team lacked a very solid #1 cornerback. Hopefully Hayden steps up this season into that role! Then the Raiders have the #1 DJ #2 Brown and nickel Rogers

  • BossKnows01

    DJAX was spotted wearing silver blazer and black slacks on his way to visiting the 4skins…hmmm

  • r8ter4evr

    And that makes the most we have had since 2002
    Playoffs ? Playoffs ?did somebody say Playooofffsss ????
