49ers scorecard: Rogers' deal counts 5.5 million on cap

The 49ers are approximately 18 million under the salary cap after figuring in the return of cornerback Carlos Rogers, along with the space cleared with the release Thursday of veteran cornerback Shawntae Spencer.Rogers counts 5.5 million against the 49ers' 2012 cap after signing a four-year, 29.3 million contract that includes a 5 million signing bonus, a league source told CSNBayArea.com.Rogers' deal includes a 2012 base salary of 3.9 million, along with annual 100,000 workout bonuses and up to 250,000 yearly in roster bonuses. Rogers' base salaries increase to 5.5 million in 2013, 6.25 million in 2014, and 7.25 million in 2015. The deal contains another 2 million total in possible incentives.Rogers' base salary this year is fully guaranteed, and 1.75 million of his 2013 salary is guaranteed. His entire 5.5 million salary for 2013 is guaranteed if Rogers remains on the roster on April 1, 2013.Spencer's release saves the 49ers 3.3 million on the 2012 cap.
The 49ers have plenty of room under the cap to re-sign quarterback Alex Smith and several other free agents, as well as their draft class. Although there has been no explanation for the delay in Smith's re-signing, both sides remain adamant the multi-year deal will get done.The 49ers are looking to add a free-agent wide receiver to join Michael Crabtree and Randy Moss. The 49ers have visited with Mario Manningham, Brandon Lloyd and Chaz Schilens. There is no indication whether the 49ers will pursue restricted free agent Mike Wallace, but the organization has the cap space to easily fit an offer sheet for the Pittsburgh receiver.

Report: Stubblefield taken into custody, booked into jail in no-bail case

Report: Stubblefield taken into custody, booked into jail in no-bail case

Former 49ers defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield is behind bars. 

According to the Mercury News, Stubblefield was led away from court to jail in handcuffs Friday after a judge found there was probable cause to hold him over for trial on charges of rape stemming from May 2016. 

Stubblefield is charged with raping an intellectually disabled woman on April 9, 2015 at his Morgan Hill home when she had gone to interview for a babysitting job. 

According to the same report, Stubblefield had been free on $250,000 bail for more than a year. But the judge ordered him taken into custody Friday after prosecutors formally added the allegation that Stubblefield used a gun during the assault, which made it a no-bail case.

Stubblefield has pleaded not guilty and publicly denied the five felony charges and gun enhancement that prosecutors say could lead to at least 15 years to life in prison if he is convicted.

Stubblefield played 11 seasons in the NFL, including the first five with the 49ers. He later returned to the 49ers in 2001 and ’02, before finishing his career with the Raiders.

Stubblefield, a first-round pick of the 49ers in 1993, was the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year after recording 10.5 sacks. He was named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year with a career-high 15 sacks in 1997. He signed a lucrative contract with Washington in 1998.

Drafted by Baalke with injury, former 49ers WR signs with Colts

The 49ers recently re-signed eight of the 10 players who finished the season on the team’s practice squad.

Wide receiver DeAndre Smelter, who was not among the first wave of 49ers signings to 2018 contracts, signed Wednesday with the Indianapolis Colts, ending his three-season association with the organization.

Smelter was one of general manager Trent Baalke’s redshirt draft picks. The team selected him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft despite a torn ACL that ended his final season at Georgia Tech.

Smelter spent his first season on an injured list. He was waived at the beginning of the past two seasons, finishing both years on the 49ers’ practice squad. Smelter appeared in two games in 2016 and caught one pass for 23 yards.

Last season, the 49ers signed wide receivers Louis Murphy and Max McCaffrey to spots on the 53-man roster instead of Smelter, who remained on the practice squad.

Wide receiver DeAndre Carter, who also spent the entire season on the practice squad, was signed recently to the team’s 90-man roster.

Others who finished the season on the 49ers practice squad to remain on the team’s offseason roster are: quarterback Nick Mullens, tight end Cole Wick, offensive linemen Andrew Lauderdale and Pace Murphy, linebacker Boseko Lokombo, and defensive backs Trovon Reed and Channing Stribling.

The 49ers also signed fullback Malcolm Johnson, who spent last season on injured reserve with the Seattle Seahawks. Johnson appeared in 19 games over the 2015 and ’16 seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was a sixth-round draft pick in ’15.

Offensive linemen Cameron Hunt, who finished the season on the 49ers’ practice squad, remains unsigned. Guard JP Flynn is also unsigned. He sustained a torn patellar tendon in November and underwent surgery that was expected to keep him out up to nine months.
