It didn't take CB Carlos Rogers long after signing a one-year deal this season to declare just how much he'd love to nail down a long-term contract with the Niners. The way we hear it, it would be a pretty big surprise if the team decided not to grant Rogers' wish. "Aside from Alex Smith, I think he's the top priority to bring back," one team insider said of Rogers, who along with teammate Dashon Goldson finished in a four-way tie for second in the league with six interceptions, effectively dispelling his reputation for having hands of stone. "I think they really like what he brings on the field and the way he works with the younger players. He's a very smart guy who isn't afraid to offer suggestions, and he's become a go-to guy for the media. Because he says he loves it so much here, he'd probably be willing to give the Niners a bit of a home-team discount, which certainly wouldn't hurt his chances of staying around."
