A league source told Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area that the 49ers have filled a glaring need by signing former Redskins CB Carlos Rogers to a one-year deal.
Rogers, 30, was a first-round pick of the Redskins in 2005. He has started 68 games in his career, including all 12 games in which he played last season. He had two interceptions in ’10, giving him eight in his six-year career. He also dropped a few more possible interceptions last season, and his hands have been an issue during his pro career.
He reportedly visited with the 49ers on Tuesday before agreeing to terms and signing a contract. The team is counting on him to take over the starting RCB job that had been held by Nate Clements, who was cut last week.
