Golden Nuggets: Carlos Rogers...Come On Down

For one night only I'm filling in for James on the Nuggets. Tuesday was shaping up to be a solid day with Frank Gore returning to practice and it only got better late last night. Although the 49ers had not yet sent out an official release, the team reportedly agreed to terms with cornerback Carlos Rogers, which has excited plenty of folks in the twitter-verse, if only because someone fans have been clamoring for was actually signed. Who would of thunk it?

Anyway, we'll just get right into the links today because there are plenty. There was a good-sized media contingent on hand for Frank Gore's first practice back, which means plenty of stories, although many are somewhat similar given the topic of discussion. On to the links.
