49ers will likely ask Carlos Rogers to take a pay cut

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com believes the 49ers will ask cornerback Carlos Rogers to take a pay cut for a second straight season even though last year he decline and the Niners didn’t have choice but to keep him since Chris Culliver went down with a season ending injury.

Rogers had a good year, no question. He played more defensive snaps than anyone else on the team during the regular season. He was a major factor in the 49ers’ strong pass defense, which held opponents to a 76.4 passer rating — fourth-best in the league.

But Rogers is currently on the 49ers’ books as their highest-paid player for 2014. He is scheduled to make $6.6 million in salary and bonuses. He currently accounts for $8.09 million on the salary cap. After showing their hand a year ago, the 49ers will almost assuredly approach him again about a pay cut. With approximately $3 million in proration, Rogers’ release would create $3.6 million in cap room.

Unlike last year,  if Rogers declines to take a pay cut,  the 49ers will almost certainly cut him.
