If cornerback Carlos Rogers stays healthy and active in 2014, he’ll make at least $2.5 million from his one-year contract with the Raiders.

According to overthecap.com, Rogers received a $1 million signing bonus and is set for a $1.05 million base salary.

He can make a total of $250,000 in per game roster bonuses and another $200,000 as a workout bonus.

Rogers, who is slated to be the team’s nickel back but could start outside if second-year pro D.J. Hayden doesn’t progress as expected, can earn another $1 million in playing-time incentives.
