Josina Anderson is reporting that the Buccaneers have traded CB Eric Wright to the 49ers in return for a conditional late-round pick in 2014. Ian Rapoport reports that Wright will need to pass a physical before the deal is completed.  Jason Cole keeps “hearing” that the 49ers do not want to keep CB Carlos Rogers, so this could be an indication that he could be on his way out of San Francisco. Wright, 27, restructured his contract back in April and was expected to start opposite of Darrelle Revis this season. Wright’s contract is a one-year deal worth $1.5 million and includes no guaranteed money. Rapoport adds that Wright’s contract could be worth as much as $3 million this season. Tampa Bay did draft Johnathan Banks in the second-round of this year’s NFL draft, so it’s possible that they feel comfortable with him as a starter. As for San Francisco, it appears as though Rogers or Nnamdi Asomugha could be on the chopping block as the team heads into training camp. Rogers, 32, is set to make $5.5 million for the upcoming season while Asomugha, also 32, signed a one-year deal worth $1.35 million which includes no guaranteed money. $1.25 million of Rogers’ salary became guaranteed, according to Joel Corry. Matt Barrows adds that Rogers cap hit will be $8.1 million in 2014. The 49ers showed interest in Wright when he was a free agent back in 2012, per Matt Borrows. It’s pretty clear that the 49ers will hold a competition for a roster spot.     The post Buccaneers Trade CB Eric Wright To The 49ers appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
