A 2011 Free agency target of the 49ers is back on the market. Chris Carr is reportedly being released after playing in only 9 games this past season. The Ravens are saving $2.5M in 2012 and $7M in 2013.

SIGN HIM TO TAKE ROGERS PLACE

If I'm not mistaken Carr was out last target before we turned to Rogers. At the very least he would push Brock for the #3 role. I would love to get Carr at a cheap deal.

my thoughts exactly. Then have Curtis Holcomb and a late round draft pick of this year compete for the #5 spot in training camp. If we dont re-sign Rogers I would like it if our CBs looked like this.

Brown - Culliver - Carr/Brock - Brock/Carr - Holcomb/rookie

Hell no I'd rather pay Rogersn
We want Carr?
I'd rather sign Brandon Carr if he's cheaper than or the same price as Rogers.

does he fit our defense though?
we play a lot of man to man defense, Carr's strength is zone

Brandon Carr should get more money than Rogers. He has youth and a similar skill set on his side.

We play both. So does KC, who also runs a 3-4. They played hard press-coverage on Green Bay all day when they beat them.

That's true good point
Id take him but I think he'll demand too much money
We should take a serious look at Carr as a nickel CB....signing him and starting Culliver/Brown would be much cheaper than re-signing Rogers. Not to mention, Carr is a solid special teamer.
assemble the caravan...
