49ers among teams pursuing Eric Wright and Brandon Carr

Mar 13, 2012 at 2:52 PM--


Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are all pursuing free-agent cornerback Eric Wright.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area is saying that a decision is expected in the next 12 hours.

Schefter also reports that the 49ers are pursuing free-agent cornerback Brandon Carr.

Wright, who is 26, played for the Detroit Lions last season and then four years for the Cleveland Browns before that. He has had 323 tackles, 13 interceptions, one touchdown and 3 forced fumbled over his NFL career.

Carr, who is 25, has spent four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs where he has had 237 tackles, 8 interceptions and a forced fumble.

This may signal that the 49ers are willing to let Carlos Rogers walk and are attempting to get younger at the position. Right now, Carr is on his way to visit with the Dallas Cowboys, who will make a strong push for the cornerback.

Why the 49ers need to quickly figure out their Brandon Aiyuk situation

What the heck have the 49ers done with Brandon Aiyuk? That has been the primary question for this 2-3 San Francisco team since Week 1, when the promising receiver, who had an impressive rookie season, was out-snapped by free-agent addition Trent Sherfield 27-26. Drafted 25th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, Aiyuk burst into the spotlight last season, especially late in the year, catching 60 passes for 748 yards overall. In fact, in a six-game stretch from Weeks 7-15 (not including the two games he was on the COVID-19 list), the rookie averaged 94.7 receiving yards, catching 7.5 passes on 11.5 targets per game. The most important part: Aiyuk played on no lower than 76% of the offensive snaps during those weeks, which is a feat he's



John Lynch says 49ers believe in Brandon Aiyuk but need more 'urgency' from receiver

Brandon Aiyuk has been the talk amongst 49ers fans after his slow start to the season. He has only caught eight passes for 90 yards over the team's first six games, despite breaking out as a rookie, having caught 60 passes for 748 yards and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three of those categories in 2020. Last week, John Lynch spoke about his second-year receiver and stated that Aiyuk "hasn't made the strides [the 49ers] have expected him to," sparking a controversy about whether the team's been misusing him, or if there's really something different about Aiyuk. Still, Lynch, who spoke with NBC's Matt Maiocco, has given his utmost confidence in the 25th



49ers' Nick Bosa excited by Trey Lance's progress, believes Brandon Aiyuk will 'come alive'

Trey Lance entered the NFL without a whole lot of collegiate experience under his belt. He started only one full season for the North Dakota State Bison. He joined the San Francisco 49ers with a lot to learn, and the plan has always been to start Jimmy Garoppolo during the regular season, allowing Lance the time needed to absorb the offense. The most anyone expected from Lance was to see the quarterback sprinkled into the offensive game plan from week to week. However, an injury to Garoppolo thrust the rookie into the starting lineup during Week 5. Nick Bosa joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and was asked about the team's young quarterback. How much growth has the pass rusher seen from Lance since the 21-year-old first joined the squad? "He's come a
