Is he related to the former Niner CB Eric Wright?

he's a thugg

we couldnt win SB with the nice guys,, may be a thugg will bring us luck , like Ray for Baltimore
Guy was just arrested. Did the 49ers know this? I have a hard time believing they would trade for a guy that just got a DUI. Doubt he passes the physical and the trade never goes through.

noo. he will pass. but I wonder.. why give up a draft pick for him.. I thought Buccs would ve released him anyway.. I guess the 49ers felt they owed NFL for robbing the chiefs , the cowboys, the ravens,, and who else.... obviously he wants to play here.. they could ve sign him of the street.. anyway.. hope it works out

I agree with a few of you that they may make a trade. Unfortunately, like with Crabtree, Brown will command money that doesn't fit into the paying structure of Balke. I can see a trade going down with Brown that could garner a 2nd round pick for next year. Culliver with Nnamdi should make up for the loss of Brown.

WTF if anything this is writing on the wall for Rogers

seriously lol, brown is our best cb.

This is true, but do you guys think he'll fit into Baalke's plans as far as the terms of his next contract? I think the 49ers know he'll ask for more than they can give. They might be planning for his departure.

Because we are 31st in the waiver order and somebody before us wouldve claimed him.

Seems to go with the mantra of acquiring high character guys

Who cares. Winning is most important.

Exactly. Remember the "High Character" movement we had under Nolan and Singletary? That worked out great, didn't it?
"Wright's athletic, quick out of his break and has excellent ball skills. He has the speed to hang with receivers down the field. He does get beat more often than you'd like, in part because he loses too many jump-ball battles. His tackling needs some work, although he's not bad for a cornerback. Despite that he dos have the ability to be an effective slot cornerback. Overall he's an above average starter, if he can stay healthy and out of trouble off the field."

Sander from Bucs Nation

""He's pretty good inside because he's physical and can tackle," [GM Martin] Mayhew said when asked if Wright is better inside or outside. "Inside, there's a lot going on. You have to be keyed in to your run keys and pass keys, so there's a lot more happening inside.

"You have a lot of different responsibilities. You're blitzing one time, you may be in man coverage, sometimes you run with motion, sometimes you don't, so there's a lot more thought process that goes on inside and he handled that pretty well for us."

Wright is an instinctive player and seems to be much more comfortable working in the middle of the field."

DetroitLions.com

"It seems likely that Wright will get a lot of opportunities in the slot against Carlos Rogers. Vic Fangio is a fan of Rogers' work in the slot, but if a younger, potentially more athletic cornerback can do a better job, changes are going to happen.

I followed up with Sander about Wright's work last year, and while he did play some slot, he ended up spending more time outside in part because the Bucs did not face a lot of great slot receivers. Coming to San Francisco, that will not quite be the case. Just within the division, the 49ers will face the likes of Tavon Austin and Percy Harvin. The slot corner will be as important as anybody in the secondary some weeks."

Seems like an ok signing, getting crowded at DB.

If all goes well he will help us cover Austin and Harvin in the slot.

Knowing Wright had a PED suspension you can bet Seac**k fans are even more stirred up by what they're probably calling "hypocrite Harbaugh." It's a good move though, more quality competition in the secondary. He does have a history with Mangini at Cleveland I believe.

Harbaugh would only be a hypocrite if he allowed Wright to use PEDs while with the 49ers. You cannot control what a player does when they're not even on your team. Now that he's here, Harbaugh has control.

I wouldn't bother being rational with Seahawk fans, though.

So because he got a DUI last week he won't pass the physical? LOL.

The trade will go through, the 49ers knew about it, and this is teh LAWLZ
