49ers CB Carlos Rogers mentioned a few weeks ago that he’s open to discussing a contract extension with the team during the season. Yesterday, Rogers mentioned that he prefer to get something done sooner instead of hitting the free agent market for the second time in as many years.
“I wouldn’t want to be any other place,” Rogers declared, per Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. “I really haven’t thought about it, but I don’t want to be in a situation where I can be a [free agent] — where I have to choose against this or that with another team. I hope that if things work out, I can get everything done before we even get to free agency, before I even leave this city. I like this city.”
So far we’ve yet to hear anything from the 49ers regarding their interest in retaining Rogers past the 2011 season. So far he had been a steal for them and has help to solidify the back end of their defense. I would be surprised to see them pass on him following the season but I guess stranger things happen all the time.
