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.
