The 49ers just announced they’ve signed 28-year old cornerback Eric Wright to a one-year contract. The 49ers immediately placed Wright on the non-football injury/illness list, and waived the L-train, Lowell Rose.
Here’s a written statement from Trent Baalke: “We are pleased to welcome Eric to the 49ers organization and look forward to his contributions. Eric is currently tending to a personal matter and he will join the team as soon as possible.”
Do you think Wright will make the 53-man roster? If so, do you think he’ll earn a role in the 49ers’ base or nickel defense? He was a good nickelback in 2011, but he’s struggled playing on the outside. Do you think Wright could take Carlos Rogers’ job as the nickelback?
Who has a better chance to make the 53-man roster, Rogers or Wright? Or, will both cornerbacks make the final roster?
