Eric Wright failed 49ers physical, trade off

Did 49ers know about Wright's recent arrest?

Cornerback  Eric Wright has failed his physical with the 49ers.

So, the trade between San Francisco and the Bucs was voided and the Bucs immediately released Wright.

Shortly after the 49ers acquired Wright, reports surfaced that he had been arrested on suspicion of DUI charges in Los Angeles on July 12.

Wright was arrested on a similar charge last July, but that charge was dismissed. Wright is coming off hamstring and Achilles' injuries, but Monday's failed physical will surely raise questions about whether or not the 49ers were actually aware of Wright's arrest when they acquired him from the Buccaneers.
