The 49ers appear to be moving on from cornerback Carlos Rogers. After signing Perrish Cox to a two-year deal this morning, the team is in the mix for two of the marquee names at the position, Brandon Carr and Eric Wright.
Carr, 25, is perhaps the top name at the position. He's 6-0, 207 pounds and had four interceptions last year for the Chiefs. He is visiting the Dallas Cowboys tonight, according to ESPN, and owner Jerry Jones will look to make a big splash by signing the cornerback.
Wright, meanwhile, is a San Francisco native. CSN Bay Area reports that the 49ers are making a strong push for the former Brown and Lion and that a deal could be completed in the next 12 hours. The 5-10, 190-pound cornerback had four interceptions and a forced fumble last year for Detroit. Wright, 26, played at UNLV before being drafted by the Browns in 2007.
Both players are physical and tough and are younger than Rogers, who turns 31 before the season. It's not yet known which teams have shown interest in Rogers (six interceptions in 2012) but the Rams are rumored to be pursuing him.
