I forgot to mention Carlos Rogers cap situation. It is a little tricky so I'll explain it with 3 different scenarios:
1) If Rogers is on the roster past March 1st, then his entire base salary becomes fully guaranteed and there is no way that they will cut him after that date. He would count $7.1 mil against the cap.
2) If the 49ers cut him prior to March 1st, they will not owe him his $250k roster bonus or $100k workout bonus. Only $1.75 mil of his $5.5 mil base salary is guaranteed. If you include the prorated amount of his signing bonus, he would still give the team a cap hit of $3 mil if released (save the team $4.1 mil)
3) If Rogers plays out the 2013 season, none of his 2014 or 2015 season pay is guaranteed. He is due to count $7.85 mil against the cap and the 49ers would save all of that aside from his signing bonus if he were released prior to March 1st 2014 (save the team more than $6 million)
I think the likely scenario is that Rogers plays for us next year, but is cut prior to the 2014 season.
Yes, I have changed my position on Goldson. Last year he didn't wrap up when tackling and was below average in coverage. This year, he has greatly improved in both areas. He is playing as good as any safety in the league at the moment. He should be re-signed, or franchised tagged if they can't agree on a deal.

I'm just glad we're trying to keep our defense strong. Championships are built on defense. Glad the 49ers see that.
