Raiders to host CB Carlos Rogers

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Another former 49ers free agent cornerback is making the short trip across the bay to pay the Raiders a visit today according to ESPN's Colleen Dominguez. The Raiders had already signed his teammate, Tarell Brown this off-season.

Carlos Rogers is a 9-year veteran NFL corner. He spent his first six seasons with the Redskins and the past three seasons with the 49ers. He has started every game the past three seasons in San Francisco, making the Pro Bowl in his first season there back in 2011.

The interest in Rogers is reminiscent of when the team signed former 49ers cornerback Shawntae Spencer two seasons ago. At 32 years old, Rogers is two years older than Spencer was when he joined the Raiders. However, Spencer had a few injuries and had lost his job with the 49ers. He lasted just one start before being lost for the season.

Rogers has been very dependable and has not been a priority to return to the team as they opt for youth.

The Raiders have their two proposed starters in place in D.J. Hayden and Tarell Brown. Rogers has primarily played at left cornerback but has stepped inside to play slot cornerback as well. If he were signed, the Raiders would have their projected top three corners.
