The 49ers' defense appears to be set with the late push Tuesday night to re-sign cornerback Carlos Rogers.

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.
