San Francisco 49ers sign Eric Wright after rejecting trade for him

The San Francisco 49ers signed cornerback Eric Wright to a one-year contract on Thursday, nearly three weeks after a trade for him was voided.

Eric WrightThe 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers reached an agreement on a trade for Wright in July, but he failed his physical with San Francisco, so the deal was voided. The Bucs subsequently released the 28-year-old and now the Niners have scooped him up. He will be placed on the active/non-football injury list.

Whatever Wright’s ailment is remains undisclosed but San Francisco apparently believes he’s healthy enough to give a contract to. He’ll compete for a job as one of the 49ers backup corners. The secondary has become an area of need for the Niners after No. 3 corner Chris Culliver was lost to a torn ACL last week. Wright will compete with Tramaine Brock, Nnamdi Asomugha and Perrish Cox for a spot behind starts Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown.

Wright has had a tumultuous career since the Cleveland Browns make him the 53rd overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft out of UNLV. He has had numerous run-ins with the law during his time in the NFL, but when he has kept his nose clean and remained focused, he has actually been a pretty decent player.

Wright will enter the 2013 season with 360 tackles and 14 interceptions in 85 career games.

After a solid season with the Detroit Lions in 2011, Wright signed a big, five-year, $37.5 million contract with Tampa Bay. He lasted just one season before the Bucs tried to trade him to San Francisco this offseason. Wright was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs last season, and was also arrested for drunk driving in July.

Maybe an influence like 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is what Wright needs to turn his career around.
