Bucs trade CB Wright to 49ers

Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded cornerback Eric Wright to the San Francisco 49ers Friday for a conditional 2014 draft pick.

Wright was the Cleveland Browns' second-round pick in 2007 and started all 10 of the games he appeared in last season in Tampa Bay. He had one interception and seven pass deflections.

The 27-year-old has played six seasons with Cleveland, the Detroit Lions, and Tampa Bay. He has 14 interceptions and 70 pass deflections in 85 career games (81 starts).

Wright was projected to start across from Darrelle Revis, who the Bucs acquired from the New York Jets in April for a 2013 first-round pick and a 2014 conditional pick.

In addition to Wright, the 49ers signed cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in April.
