07.19.13 — ESPN’s Josina Anderson is reporting that the 49ers have traded for Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Eric Wright.
Breaking: Tampa trades CB Eric Wright to the 49ers for a conditional late-round pick. The conditional late-round pick is from 2014.

So the 49ers are giving up a 2014 late conditional draft pick, not bad considering they’ll have about 80 picks in that draft. Okay, maybe not that many.
With the trade it gives the 49ers another veteran DB on the roster. The 27-year-old already has 81 career NFL starts to his credit and with free agency looming he’ll have more of an incentive to go out and prove himself.
This moves to me is along the same lines as when the 49ers went out and signed cast off Carlos Rogers.
