49ers Trade For CB Eric Wright

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers have acquired cornerback Eric Wright in a trade with Tampa Bay that sends a conditional selection in the 2014 draft to the Buccaneers.

The Bucs announced the deal Friday.

Wright joined Tampa Bay last season and played in 10 games, finishing with 37 tackles and one interception. In 2011 with the Detroit Lions, Wright started 16 games and had four interceptions. He will join a crowded secondary and crop of cornerbacks, including Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver and Nnamdi Asomugha.

The 49ers did announce earlier Friday that they had waived cornerback Lowell Rose, who was signed as an undrafted free agent May 7.
