The Oakland Raiders have signed cornerback Carlos Rogers to a deal, the team said on its Twitter feed.

The Raiders have signed CB Carlos Rogers.

Cut by the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason, Rogers, 32, was the team’s nickel cornerback last season and has been a mainstay since 2011. However, his age and cap number made the cut likely. He refused a pay cut last season and it paid off for him.
By releasing Rogers, the Niners saved more than $6 million against the salary cap.
The 49ers did not completely close the door on bringing back Rogers, according to a league source, but they didn’t make much of a move toward doing so before he signed with the Raiders.
Information from San Francisco 49ers reporter Bill Williamson contributed to this report.
