49ers may not want to keep Carlos Rogers

Jul 19, 2013 at 11:23 PM--




NFL reporter Jason Cole mentioned on Twitter that he keeps hearing that the San Francisco 49ers don't want to keep cornerback Carlos Rogers.


In 2012, Rogers played in all 16 games and had 56 tackles, a sack and an interception.

According to resident cap expert Jason Hurley, Rogers' 2013 salary cap figure is a little over $7.3 million, the second highest on the team. The 49ers would create $4.5 million in savings by cutting him.

The 49ers acquired cornerback Eric Wright in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday. That added to an already crowded group of cornerbacks who will have to compete during training camp. In addition to Rogers, the team also had Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver, Perrish Cox and Tramaine Brock. They added Nnamdi Asomugha to that group during the offseason.

Cornerback will likely be the most interesting position battle during the team's practices, which begin next week.

49ers hope to keep Kwon Alexander off injured reserve; Kyle Shanahan provides Richard Sherman update

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to get linebacker Kwon Alexander back this season. How soon that will happen remains unclear, but head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Friday that the team isn't talking injured reserve just yet. "We don't think [injured reserve is a possibility] right now," Shanahan said. "I never like to say 'minor high-ankle sprain' because high-ankle sprains are always a big issue, but it wasn't your typical one where they for sure go on IR. That's why we haven't put him on that yet, and we're hoping to keep him off." Shanahan also provided an update on Richard Sherman, who has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. The 49ers had hoped to get him back this past weekend, but the cornerback had a setback last

Kwon Alexander suffered a 'possible' high-ankle sprain; Shanahan not counting on Richard Sherman for 49ers-Rams

Kwon Alexander could be the latest San Francisco 49ers player sidelined. On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the linebacker suffered a "possible" high-ankle sprain on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. That doesn't necessarily mean injured reserve just yet, though, as the injury's severity hasn't been determined. Alexander played 66 of the 67 total snaps on defense against the Dolphins. "We could be wrong, but right now, they told me that they believe it's a high-ankle sprain," Shanahan told reporters. "They're not sure of the severity of it. It could be a minor one, for whatever that means. If it's automatic high-ankle sprain, I'd be talking about IR and stuff right now. But they told me to hold on that because they think it possibly could be a

Kyle Shanahan has not yet decided on the 49ers' quarterback depth chart

Nick Mullens spent all of last season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. He started this season in that same role. When a high-ankle sprain sidelined Garoppolo in Week 2, Mullens replaced him and then started the next two games. However, a poor performance in that second start led to Mullens being benched late in the game and replaced by C.J. Beathard. Then there was a change to the quarterback depth chart. Beathard, not Mullens, entered this past weekend's game against the Miami Dolphins as Garoppolo's backup. He was needed, too, because Garoppolo was clearly still hindered by the injury and benched at halftime. Garoppolo's status for Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Rams is not yet known. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will use this week's practices to determine
