Carlos Rogers ready to build on strong 2011

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Carlos Rogers has no plans to be a one-and-done Pro Bowler.

Or playoff participant for that matter.

The cornerback says he re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers this month on a $31.3 million, four-year contract because he appreciates the team's effort to keep the NFC West champions' talented defense intact for another run at a Super Bowl this year.

Rogers, who shared the team lead with six interceptions, insists he knew in Week 4 or 5 last season that he wanted to return on a long-term deal -- and now he hopes to use the momentum gained from his big season to carry him in 2012.

With Rogers back, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has all 11 starters returning on a unit that ranked No. 1 in the NFL in stopping the run.
