Eric Wright sticks with the 49ers

Eric Wright will spend another season in San Francisco.

Wright, a cornerback who signed a one-year deal with the 49ers last year, revealed on Instagram that he is signing another contract with the 49ers this year.

When Wright is 100 percent physically and mentally, he has shown flashes of being a very good player. Unfortunately, Wright hasn’t always been 100 percent physically and mentally. Wright has had run-ins with the law, and he lasted just 10 games in Tampa Bay after signing a five-year, $37.5 million contract with the Bucs in 2012.

When the 49ers signed Wright in 2013 they initially put him on the non-football injury list, saying he was “tending to a personal matter.” But Wright was able to get on the field for the 49ers late in the regular season and in the playoffs, and they like his potential. He’s still just 28 years old and should have some good football ahead of him. That football will be played in San Francisco.

  1. Good,we needed depth,hopefully cox comes back and we draft a trade up gor Gilbert

  2. Gilbett would be nice but Evans is the Red zone target we NEED!! Experts say we have needs at corner but i see a bigger need in the red zone. With ten picks and a track record of drafting good starting caliber corners late i think wr go after Evans!!! BIG TARGET at 6’4 3/4″!!! Red Zone All Day!!! Please Niners then Draft Aaron Colvin with comp 3rd or 4th!! Top corner this year till hr tore his acl at the senior bowl. Could be a shut down corner in the future
