49ers will cut Carlos Rogers

It was reported that Carlos Rogers would need to take a pay cut in order to avoid getting cut. Rogers didn't take a cut in pay, so now he will be cut.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the decision has been made, and the 49ers will cut Rogers.

Rogers had a cap number of more than $8 million for the 2014 season, so the decision to cut him doesn't come as a surprise. Rogers started all 16 games in all three of his seasons with the 49ers, but he’ll be 33 before the season starts and isn’t worth the kind of money he was scheduled to make.

Rogers will now become an unrestricted free agent, and the 49ers will now have more cap space to try to bring back a couple of other free agents in their secondary, Donte Whitner and Tarell Brown.

  1. He wasn't a bad player. Sorry to see him go. I go with a 2 year contract with Kap like Anquan. Two problems with the 4 or 5 yr 9 digit contracts. One, none of the qb's getting them are able to win, and I mean win, super bowls. Some are actually performing badly since they have just been setup for life. The only reason they performed so well was to get the contract, then, it's no worries, sorry team. Plus, I think the missing money available to keep good players is tied up in unhealthy, unspirited demands. 2 years is sufficient because their is a third reason besides ruining team moral. What was the score in the super bowl this year? However, back to my third reason which is if a 9 digit salaried player gets hurt in the 1st year, and the next year or two are lost. One by returning late in the season, and the teams already out of the playoff hunt. By the way was Green Bay's qb's shoulder sprain really that bad? If he wasn't on the mega contract, and he had something to prove he would of return to the game he was hurt in as I saw the injury. The supposed injury. So, a prescription for disaster is to give a quarterback who hasn't won a couple of super bowls. What happened to Blanco, oh I mean flacko this year?? hummm. Spend your money wisely or don't spend it at all.
