Josina Anderson, an ESPN Bureau reporter, is stating that the San Francisco 49ers will allow cornerback Carlos Rogers to hit free agency by cutting him.


Rogers originally signed a one-year deal with the 49ers in August of 2011. In March of 2012, Rogers re-signed with the team to a four-year, $31.3 million contract.

This move probably does not come as a surprise to many. According to salary cap expert Jason Hurley (@Jay_AB81), Rogers' base salary for 2014 would have been $6,250,000, his cap hit would be $8,094,531, and the cap savings of cutting Rogers would be $5,105,469.
