Carlos Rogers open to a long-term deal with Niners

Carlos Rogers is off to a fine start with the San Francisco 49ers after spending the first six seasons of his career with the Washington Redskins.

He’s got a career-high three interceptions in six games, and Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area says the 30-year-old Rogers is open to working on a long-term agreement with the 49ers.

The veteran received a $4.25 million, one-year contract. Many players believed it would be a free-agent bonanza when the lockout was ended, but the reality was a large number of players didn’t get the market they expected and many signed one-year deals. It means it will be a buyers’ market again this coming year. From the sounds of things, Rogers would like to be off the market by that time.

“If we can get something worked out, that would be great," Rogers said. "My agent (Todd France) knows that I like what's going on here. I want to be here. This has been great for me, and I would love to get something worked out for five, six years."
