2012 NFL Free Agents: Carlos Rogers Could Be Popular With Rams

2012 NFL Free Agency will get started at 1:00 p.m. PT and one of the more popular free agents could be San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers. Coming off his best season as a pro, Carlos Rogers will be looking to capitalize and ink a long term contract extension with big guaranteed dollars. He has indicated a preference to remain in San Francisco, but the 49ers are likely unwilling to overspend for the free agent cornerback.

Now it sounds like the 49ers divisional rivals, the St. Louis Rams, will be looking to get in on the Rogers sweepstakes. They need to overhaul a sizable chunk of their defense, and adding Rogers as their top cornerback would be a strong first move. Although he did have a career year at the age of 30, he has always been a fairly solid cornerback. His issues had always been with regards to holding on to interceptions. He figured that out this past year and benefited accordingly.

Although the 49ers would re-sign him for the right price, that price might have lowered even further following the addition of former Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox. At this point, the 49ers would seem intent on starting Tarell Brown and Chris Culliver, and having Cox compete with Tramaine Brock and Curtis Holcomb for nickel time.
