Raiders signed CB Carlos Rogers, formerly of the 49ers.

Rogers, 33 in July, was released by the 49ers three weeks ago. His visit to Oakland on Monday was his only one. Rogers can still play as a slot corner who can defend the run a bit and will fill that role for the Silver and Black. Tarell Brown and D.J. Hayden will serve as the outside corners. The Raiders are loading up on aging veterans in an attempt to compete in the tough AFC West in 2014.

The Raiders are hosting free agent CB Carlos Rogers on Monday.

Turning 33 in July, Rogers fits the age profile for a Raiders team loading up on late-career veterans. Released by the 49ers on March 10, Rogers hadn't so much as earned a free agent visit before Oakland signed him. Rogers, in his prime, was a physical 6-foot press corner who could also cover the slot.

The Washington Post reports free agent CB Carlos Rogers could be a "possibility" for the Redskins.

Washington is in the market for a slot corner with Josh Wilson a free agent. That's where Rogers excels at this point in his career. The 32-year-old started his career with the Redskins and shouldn't command more than a one-year deal.

49ers released CB Carlos Rogers.

The move creates $5.1 million in cap space, and $6.25 million in real savings. Rogers had started every game for the 49ers since Jim Harbaugh became head coach, but is going on 33, and is better in the slot than on the outside. He'll likely have to settle for a one-year deal worth somewhere between $2-$3 million in free agency.

CSN Bay Area believes CB Carlos Rogers will either have to accept a pay cut or be released.

Rogers was unwilling to accept a pay cut last season and would have been cut before if not for an injury to CB Chris Culliver during training camp. It is unlikely he would be willing to accept a pay cut now. The 49ers can save $5.1 million by releasing Rogers.

CSN Bay Area confirms 49ers CB Carlos Rogers is not expected back in 2014.

Rogers is owed $6.6 million in salary and bonuses, and turns 33 before next season, so he was never due back in 2014. Rogers can play the slot and outside at a reasonable clip, so he'll have value on the market once released. We suspect he'll wind up at around $3 million after testing the open waters.

49ers CB Carlos Rogers is active for Sunday evening's NFC Championship game at Seattle.

Look for Rogers to spend most of the day guarding Doug Baldwin in the slot. The Niners' Week 20 inactives are CB Eric Wright, TE Derek Carrier, LB Nick Moody, OL Ryan Seymour, DT Quinton Dial, OL Joe Looney, and WR Jon Baldwin. FB Will Tukuafu (knee) is indeed active for Sunday's game.

49ers LCB Carlos Rogers (hamstring) confirmed he expects to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

"I'm playing," Rogers said on his weekly Thursday night radio show. The 49ers are expected to limit Rogers to nickel packages, with Tramaine Brock and Tarell Brown remaining the starters on the outside. Even at less than 100 percent, Rogers should be an upgrade over Perrish Cox in the slot. He'll be playing in his first playoff game after going down with his hamstring injury in Week 17.

49ers DC Vic Fangio wouldn't commit to starting LCB Carlos Rogers (hamstring) in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

"We're hoping that he can get 100 percent healthy," Fangio said. "We'll see exactly what his role will be at that point." Rogers made it through his second straight practice on Thursday, but could see limited snaps against Seattle even if fully recovered from his hamstring strain. His status will be updated when the 49ers release their injury report on Friday.

49ers LCB Carlos Rogers (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

It's Rogers' first practice of any kind since going down in Week 17. Rogers has already said he plans to suit up for Sunday's NFC Championship Game, but it's unclear if he'd be returning to his usual, every-down role. The 49ers' secondary hasn't missed a beat in Rogers' absence, with Perrish Cox holding his own in the slot. Rogers will have to be truly healthy to have a big role vs. Seattle.
