Carlos Rogers ‘Most Likely’ Corner to Sign with Redskins
Updated [6 p.m.]: Rogers was released a short time ago, the 49ers announced.
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Carlos Rogers could be cut by the San Francisco 49ers any minute now (maybe even by the time this is published), and no matter how burned his bridge to the Redskins organization may seem to be, Washington could still be the most likely destination for the 32-year-old corner.
“I’ve always been the No. 2 corner, but I’m the one they put on a guy they want to shut down,” Rogers told the Junkies in May 2011, via Bleacher Report (one of multiple negative comments he’d made about the Redskins since leaving D.C.).
“As strange as it sounds, Carlos Rogers is the most likely to end up in Washington by the end of the day,” Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch told 106.7 The Fan’s Lavar and Dukes, with regard the potentially available corners.
“I think he’s the most likely, because he fits that contract structure,” Phillips said. “I like Aqib Talib – he’s a good player – but he breaks the bank at a position where I don’t think you want to break the bank right now.”
Rogers was drafted 9th overall by the Redskins in 2005, prior to playing 6 seasons in Washington. Since departing for San Francisco in 2011, Rogers has 9 interceptions, 40 tackles and 2 touchdowns (INT, fumble recovery).
The Redskins, as of this writing, have reportedly signed two linebackers (Riley and Hayward), two wide receivers (Moss & Roberts), and an offensive guard (Lauvao).
Still no corners …
