Rogers appeared to be the highest-profile 49ers free agent that the club might not re-sign. But after spending most of Tuesday flirting with free agents Brandon Carr and Eric Wright, the 49ers and Rogers got together on a four-year contract.

The 49ers won the NFC West with a 13-3 record, powered by the team's defense. The 49ers ranked fourth in the league in total yards allowed. They allowed just 14.3 points per game, ranking second in the NFL.

Earlier this offseason, the 49ers re-signed outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks to a six-year, 37 million contract with a 7.5 million signing bonus.Last week, the 49ers placed the franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson to prevent him from being an unrestricted free agent.The only change to the lineup in 2012 is the anticipated promotion of outside linebacker Aldon Smith to take Parys Haralson's starting job at right outside linebacker. General manager Trent Baalke said the 49ers plan for Smith, a pass-rush specialist as a rookie in 2011, to take a full-time role.It is not known if the 49ers plan to retain Haralson as a backup at his scheduled 2.75 million pay for this season. Haralson started all 16 games for the 49ers last season.

49ers CEO Jed York responds to Trump's 'callous and offensive comments'

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York responded emphatically to the comments of President Donald Trump's views of those who take a knee in NFL games during the national anthem. 

Speaking in Huntsville, AL, on Friday, Trump told a group of his supporters during a campaign rally, "wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag to say, 'get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired."

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first to sit and then kneel during the national anthem as a protest against social injustices last season. As he did last season, 49ers safety Eric Reid has continued to take a knee during the 2017 season.

York was the third representative of an NFL team to speak out against Trump's actions. Since then, the Packers and Falcons have issued a statements.

Colin Kaepernick's mom responds to Trump's 'son of a b----' remark

In front of a raucus crowd at a rally in Alabama on Friday night, President Trump had pointed words for NFL players that are kneeling and protesting during the National Anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump said.

Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled before every 49ers game last season, has yet to respond to those comments. But his mom, Teresa, made her thoughts clear on Twitter Friday night.

"Guess that makes me a proud bitch!" Teresa said in response to a journalist tweeting an article with Trump's comments.
