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' Kyle Shanahan still not optimistic about Jimmy Garoppolo's return this week

It seems it's time for your weekly Jimmy Garoppolo update. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been sidelined since suffering a broken foot on December 4. However, there is a slight chance Garoppolo could return and suit up for the playoffs, likely serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup. That probably won't be this week, though. Last week, head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the quarterback probably wouldn't be ready for an NFC Championship Game appearance. However, Garoppolo suiting up for the Super Bowl, should the 49ers make it that far, might be more likely. On Monday, Shanahan was once again asked about Garoppolo's recovery and

Brock Purdy is preparing to start his second-ever NFL playoff game. Sunday's Divisional Round matchup between his San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys will only be the rookie quarterback's seventh career NFL start and his eighth game appearance with extended playing time. Purdy took over for an injured Jimmy Garoppolo during Week 13. At the time, the 49ers were riding a four-game win streak. The winning continued with Purdy under center. San Francisco's last loss came on October 23, 2022, and the team has won 11 consecutive games since. Purdy may be a rookie, but he has played with the poise and skill of a savvy veteran. He has done everything asked of him, shedding the "Mr. Irrelevant" label that came with being the last overall pick in the 2022 NFL

The San Francisco 49ers' defensive coordinator, DeMeco Ryans, is a hot name in head coaching searches. The assistant coach has already interviewed with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. The Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts still hope to speak with Ryans about their head coach vacancies. Right now, Ryans and the 49ers are focused on their NFC Championship Game opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles. Players know their time with the defensive coordinator is running out, though. In their minds, there is no doubt that Ryans will thrive as a head coach, whether that be after this season or down the road. "He's going to be a great head coach," defensive end Nick Bosa told reporters on Wednesday. "I think he's as good as it gets when it comes to the scheme on

People around the league believe he has traction in Houston. He played six years there, was a great player, played alongside J.J. Watt and others, well respected. ...
