Nnamdi is already on the bench and Wright is not taking Rogers spot unless he just starts blowing mad coverages for TDs.
Agreed Rogers has been doing an admirable job as slot corner. It is the toughest position in the secondary and he is holding up really well, but beyond that the guys who would replace him dont really have that skill set. Its more about twitch reflexes and acceleration rather than top end speed. A lot of our other corners are a little bigger, a little longer and more about top end speed than getting to their top speed quickly. It's the diffrence between quick and fast.
Not saying any of our corners are elite speed guys, but dudes like Wright, Brock, Aso and Cully if he was healthy are outside guys traditionally. After the season maybe you could do something there...but I think Rogers stays this year.
