#49ers Carlos Rogers on not looking elsewhere in free agency (like, say, St. Louis?): "Maybe I get more money. I could be with a team with that's sorry. And they could continue to be sorry for like two years and then once they want to change some stuff around, OK, they're going to go after the people that are making the highest salary and then I get cut."
In fact, thats the first time I've actually heard a player say something like that. I wonder if thats part of Paarag and Baalk's sales pitch....very smart. Goldson needs to take note.
First time I've ever heard a player acknowledge this as well. The guy is savvy, and that's a great quality in a CB.
