It looked as though the San Francisco 49ers were not going to bring back veteran cornerback Eric Wright.

However, after Donte Whitner signed with the Cleveland Browns and the 49ers decided to release Carlos Rogers, they have some holes in their secondary so they decided to re-sign Wright.


According to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee, Wright is returning on a one-year deal.


Wright was originally drafted with the 53rd overall pick in the second round by the Cleveland Browns in the 2007 NFL Draft.

After four seasons in Cleveland, Wright joined the Lions for a season and then signed a big contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012.  He was suspended for PED use in 2012 and the Buccaneers decided to cut ties with Wright.

He signed with the 49ers before last season began.

Wright had seven tackles and one interception in seven games for the 49ers last season. He has 15 career interceptions.
