The San Francisco 49ers plan to release veteran cornerback Carlos Rogers, according to ESPN.

By cutting Rogers, the 49ers can create over $6 million in salary-cap space.

Rogers, 32, was the 49ers' nickel cornerback last season.

The 49ers could use the salary-cap room to try to retain safety Donte Whitner, cornerback Tarell Brown and kicker Phil Dawson.

The 49ers are expected to draft a cornerback.
