Eric Wright is "making a decision to not play football," according to Harbaugh. Is he retiring? "That's my understanding," Harbaugh said.


That was from the BASportsGuy.

He had little chance of making the team but hopefully he took care of his money.

I actually thought he had a pretty solid chance at making the team. He's a guy who can play outside and the slot, so he seemed like an ideal back-up to the top 3 guys. With him seemingly out of the picture, I'm glad it sounds like Chris Cook has been stepping up. Heard good things about Kenneth Acker, too.

49ers say CB Eric Wright is pondering retirement. Well ponder no more. Source says he will file paperwork today to officially retire.

I cant say that Im suprised by this. Throughout his career he has always struck as a guy who was never really fully engaged in the game.

Was he hurt around playoff time last year? I though Cox just beat him out.

I think Ward is still recovering and not practicing right now, is that right? If so then Wright's retirement should mean a chance for Morris to get a few more snaps in. I have no idea how good or bad he is as a CB. I just know he's a rocket out there and I'd sure love to see him develop to the point where we could get that speed on the field for more than just special teams.

There was a good article last week, I think, about Morris, and how last year he would always hang around Carlos Rogers during meetings, because Fangionatell told him he looked like a potential nickle back candidate. I've never seen or read anything to discourage the belief that he could be a decent player. He's already way higher in my heart and head than Tramaine Brock was at a similar stage in their careers.

Eric Wright, who retired from #49ers yesterday, didn't show once Vic Fangio asked him to move inside as nickel back last week, Fangio said


Interesting, since NB was the only spot he was playing for last year. I mean didn't he say when he had to play outside that he was a little rusty since all he had practiced was to play the slot?

I'm not sure if Morris is strong enough to play the slot. I like him on the outside with his other wordly speed.
