Cornerback Carlos Rogers' has agreed to terms with the 49ers that will keep the Pro-Bowler in San Francisco for four more years. Rogers had six interceptions and 18 passes defensed for the 49ers' vaunted defense, and was a big part of their run to the NFC Championship Game.

This is welcome news to Niners fans, as earlier in the day ESPN's Howard Balzar had reported rumblings that the St. Louis Rams would pursue Rogers, and many took this as evidence that the team was preparing for that eventual departure by signing free agent cornerback Perrish Cox. Cox will make his return to the NFL after sitting out of 2011 while on trial for sexual assault.
