“Rogers, 30, said he’s seeking a four- or five-year deal,” writes Branch. “He’s willing to take a discount to stay in San Francisco, but also wants to get paid like a top-end cornerback. Goldson, 27, is probably seeking a similar deal after he found few suitors on the free-agent market following a disappointing 2010 season.”
San Francisco is open to keeping both players but has said that they’re only going to have interest in Rogers if it’s at their price. A four or five-year deal doesn’t sound like it will fit into their price range and franchising him would cost them $10.6 million next season. Conversely, tagging Goldson would run them $6.2 million.
The 49ers also mentioned that they believe Chris Culliver is ready to start next season which could be seen as a sign that they’re ready to move on without Rogers.
Either way, there will be some tough roster decisions for the team to make regarding their secondary in the coming months.
