49ers Update: Eric Wright fails physical with 49ers, trade gets voided, Bucs release Wright

Quote:
Eric Wright's tumultuous time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is over after yet another off-the-field incident.

The Bucs announced Friday that they have traded Wright to the San Francisco 49ers for a conditional 2014 draft pick. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the compensation is a late-round selection, according to a source involved with the negotiations. NFL.com's Albert Breer reported that the Bucs would have released Wright if they didn't find a trade partner.

The trade initially came as a surprise, but it made more sense after NFL.com and NFL Network learned via the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department that Wright was arrested July 12 on a misdemeanor DUI charge. Wright was released on $5,000 bail later that night. His next court date was scheduled for Aug. 7.

Wright's career has been heading in the wrong direction since the moment he landed in Tampa. Signed to a ridiculously expensive five-year, $37.5 million contract in 2012, Wright was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI in Los Angeles last offseason (the case later was dropped) and separately suspended four games for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Those infractions got the Bucs off the hook for Wright's previously guaranteed $7.75 million 2013 salary. Instead, the cornerback was forced to take a huge pay cut to $1.5 million with incentives. The 49ers now inherit that contract.

If he can get his **** together, this is obviously a good trade for the 49ers. Let's see if Harbaugh can knock some sense into him.
