Plenty of things going on in San Francisco lately.
Not only will Super Bowl 50 be hosted by the city in just a few weeks, but the franchise is introducing former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly as its next head coach this afternoon. Oh, and they are also giving a lucrative contract to former Canadian Football League WR Eric Rogers.
Adam Schefter revealed it via his Twitter account a bit ago:
And, as Mr. Schefter so elegantly states, the contract San Francisco is signing Rogers to is the biggest NFL contract signed by a CFL player since Cameron Wake signed a four-year deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2009.
Rogers, 24, played the past two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, catching 87 passes for 1,448 yards and 10 touchdowns in ’15.
