Rogers has made a name for himself with the 49ers, sharing the team lead with six interceptions last season for the NFC West champions. He was re-signed to a $31.3 million, four-year contract last month.
Rogers, for one, is pulling for Williams to recover both personally and professionally. They spoke when the news initially broke about the bounties.
"That's one of my closest friends, coaches. We're still close," Rogers said. "I know he regrets it. I hope he gets a second chance."
