49ers Sign Former 1st Round Pick Carlos Rogers
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF ) – The San Francisco 49ers have signed free agent cornerback Carlos Rogers and safety Madieu Williams to one-year contracts.
Rogers spent the past six seasons in Washington and had 43 tackles and two interceptions in 2010. The ninth player taken overall in the 2005 draft, the 30-year-old Rogers is likely to replace Nate Clements, who was released by the 49ers in a cost-cutting move last week.
Williams played for Minnesota the last three seasons but was largely a disappointment with the Vikings after joining the team following a four-year stay in Cincinnati. Williams, who was due to make $5.4 million this season, made 50 tackles with one interception last year.
