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.
