49ers Trade for Eric Wright
He likes to roll around and….I’m not finishing that sentence.
The Niners have acquired Cornerback Eric Wright from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a conditional 2014 draft pick, according to Niner Insider Matt Maiocco’s twitter page.
Wright joins a crowded defensive backfield, and will be competing for the starting job in training camp along with Charles Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver, Parish Cox, Tremaine Brock, and Darcell McBath who, lets face it, will probably be on special teams.
Will the 49ers cut Charles Rogers?
Yahoo Sports’ Jason Cole is reporting that the 49ers may want to release Cornerback Charles Rogers. Now with Nnamdi Asomugha and Eric Wright, Rogers could be the odd man out in the Niners Cornerback rotation.
I am not sure why they would want to let Rogers go, after coming off a season with 56 tackles, 1 interception, 3 fumble recoveries, and 7 Pass deflections. Rogers seems the perfect fit for Nickel Corner, at the very least. If he can repeat anything like two season ago when he posted 46 tackles, 6 Int, and 18 pass deflections, the 49ers secondary would look pretty good with someone of that caliber as the third corner in the rotation.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, 49ers wide receiver Mario Manningham is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season as he continues to rehab from ACL surgery.
Aside from Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, a healthy Manningham would be a big help to the 49ers offense with Michael Crabtree possibly out for the entire season.
