Eric Wright DB SF 1 Month

49ers re-signed CB Eric Wright to a one-year contract.

It's a bit of a surprise after Wright was a healthy scratch for the NFC Championship Game, but he's likely returning for the veteran's minimum. Wright will fight for No. 4 cornerback duties in camp.

Eric Wright DB SF 3 Months's Bill Williamson believes the 49ers would only be interested in re-signing free agent CB Eric Wright for the veteran minimum.

Wright spent the first nine weeks on NFI this season and saw limited playing time as the No. 4 cornerback during the second half. There were rumors that the 49ers were concerned with his work ethic late in the year and he was a healthy scratch during the NFC Championship. Wright is unlikely to be brought back at the veteran minimum, but shouldn't command more than a one-year, incentive-based contract in free agency.

49ers activated CB Eric Wright from the reserve/NFI list.

Wright will likely take over quickly as San Francisco's No. 4 corner, behind RCB Tarell Brown, LCB Carlos Rogers, and nickel back/LCB Tramaine Brock.

49ers CB Eric Wright (reserve/NFI) has been cleared to resume practicing.

Wright returned to practice last week and is making "steady progress" towards eventually earning a role with the 49ers. "He's getting better and better," DC Vic Fangio said. "Obviously, he's not comfortable in the system yet. If he shows that he can play better than who we have playing, that's the guy that we'll play." Wright, who was signed in early August, spent the first six weeks on the non-football illness list. CSN Bay Area suggests that Nnamdi Asomugha could be released to create a spot for him on the active roster.

49ers signed CB Eric Wright to a one-year contract and placed him on the active/non-football injury list.

Wright was acquired by the 49ers from the Bucs nearly three weeks ago, but he failed his physical and was released. It's not certain what kind of ailment Wright has been dealing with, but he's apparently close to being healthy enough to come in and compete for a job. The Niners lost No. 3 corner Chris Culliver to a torn ACL last week, so Wright has a clearer opening. He'll compete with Tramaine Brock, Nnamdi Asomugha, and Perrish Cox for playing time.

Free agent CB Eric Wright is reportedly not healthy enough to sign with a team.

It's uncertain what's exactly bothering Wright, but the 49ers plan to meet with his doctors some time next week. Wright seems certain to sign with San Francisco if and when he can pass a physical. The Niners need cornerback help.

Free agent CB Eric Wright reportedly spent Thursday meeting with the 49ers.

The Niners lost No. 3 corner Chris Culliver to a torn left ACL on Thursday, and they were already pretty thin and aged at the position. Wright failed his physical with the 49ers when he was acquired in a trade from the Bucs last month, but GM Trent Baalke wouldn't rule out re-visiting Wright at a later date.

49ers GM Trent Baalke isn't ruling out the possibility of signing free agent CB Eric Wright at a later date.

The 49ers traded a late-round conditional pick for Wright before failing him on his physical, so there's at least some level of appreciation there. "With respect to Eric, there's always a possibility that he becomes a Niner at some point, it's just not now," Baalke said. "Our medical staff wasn't convinced he was ready to be put onto the field, so we didn't pass him."

Buccaneers CB Eric Wright failed his 49ers physical and was immediately released by Tampa Bay.

The Bucs traded Wright to the 49ers for a conditional 2014 late-round pick last Friday. Wright was arrested for DUI the previous Friday night in Los Angeles, and San Francisco's failure of Wright on his physical suggests they did not know of the arrest before the transaction. The Buccaneers wanted nothing to do with Wright and cut him outright. He's now an unrestricted free agent. The 49ers will be on the lookout for cornerbacks throughout August.

New 49ers CB Eric Wright was arrested in Los Angeles and charged with an unknown misdemeanor last Friday night.

Wright posted $5,000 bond and was released. This very well may have played a part in the Bucs' decision to ship him out on Friday. Various beat writers reported, following the trade, that the Bucs were planning to release Wright had they not found a trade partner. They did well to secure a late-round pick.
