After signing former San Francisco 49er’s cornerback Tarell Brown the Raiders are now meeting with his former teammate Carlos Rogers on Monday, according to reports.
Rogers was cut earlier this month by the 49er’s after spending the last three seasons with the team across the Bay. Rogers and Brown acted as San Francisco’s starting cornerbacks but he also played the role of slot cornerback, which the Raiders desperately need. Rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden played slot cornerback last season but will likely be kicked outside to a starting position this season.
During his time in San Francisco, Rogers started every game in his three-year stint while recording nine interceptions and 146 tackles.
If they choose to add Rogers, a nine-year veteran, the Raiders will gain another starting-caliber cornerback that will also provide them with great flexibility with their options of who to put in the slot corner position.
