Carlos Rogers signs with the Oakland Raiders for a year

Cornerback Carlos Rogers, from the San Francisco 49ers, went with a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders. The cornerback addition for the Raiders is superb, as the Silver and Black are always facing tough quarterbacks in the AFC West.

It was reported on Monday by CBS Sports that 32-year-old Rogers settled for a one-year with the Raiders. The cornerback was also happy to tell the press that he is happy to bring leadership and experience to the Raiders’ secondary like he did with the 49ers.

It was not reported how much the Raiders agreed to pay Carlos Rogers, but the short term contract seems to be ideal for the Raiders.

Already with a veteran safety, Charles Woodson, the Raiders might have to be careful with the old age in the secondary. So, signing Rogers for a year is perfect. In fact, it was a good move for the Raiders as Rogers is an exceptional cornerback.

The addition of Rogers will help out the Oakland Raiders fight off the likes of Peyton Manning from the Broncos, Philip Rivers from the Chargers, and Alex Smith from the Chiefs for next season.

If everything works out fine, the younger secondary squad can learn from Charles Woodson, Carlos Rogers, and Tarell Brown, who was also signed from the 49ers as a free agent last week.
