49ers CB Carlos Rogers Pricing Himself Out Of San Francisco?


Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle takes a look at what it would take for the 49ers to keep both CB Carlos Rogers and S Dashon Goldson.

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.

I would resign Goldson to a two or three year deal, I feel he is more important to their secondary. Culliver wouldn’t replace Rogers production, but he definitely wouldn’t “hurt” the team..
