San Francisco 49ers Rumors: Eric Wright Still an Option
Earlier this past week, the San Francisco 49ers were in the process of acquiring Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright when he failed the team physical thus voiding the trade. General manager Trent Baalke, though, seems to think he could still be a possibility in the future.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Baalke had this to say about the potential of Wright still being traded to his team:
“The door is never closed on players. With respect to Eric, there’s always a possibility that he becomes a Niner at some point. Just not now.”
Baalke seemed to think Wright had a positive experience with the 49ers and they liked what they saw out of him.
“All the work we did and the discussion that we had with Eric when he came in here was very positive. There were some concerns. We addressed the concerns, but again he’s not with us,” he said.
Last season, Wright appeared in 10 games and compiled 37 tackles along with a fumble recovery and just one interception. In his six year career, Wright has totaled 360 tackles and 14 interceptions. He has also three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.
The 28 year-old veteran cornerback would have been somewhat of a risk if he had wound up with the 49ers. He’s underperformed as of late and again, we saw his issues come into play when failing his physical.
Baalke seems to like Wright, though, and a potential trade in the future has not been ruled out like he said. I have a feeling there are some Tampa Bay fans out there that would gladly see him go.
