49ers’ Jim Harbaugh on Eric Wright: “Making a decision to not play football.”



As the San Francisco 49ers media met with head coach Jim Harbaugh this morning, it came with surprising news as Harbaugh said CB Eric Wright is pondering retirement. Breaking news straight from 49ers headquarters, Harbaugh spoke on Wright’s decision saying, “Believe he’s making a decision to not play football.” Wright who came to San Francisco last season has not lived up to expectations and would in all likelihood be in a camp battle for a backup cornerback spot with CB Chris Cook, CB Perrish Cox, and CB Darryl Morris.

So with the 49ers now having an open roster spot can CB Brandon Flowers be the next man up? A question that was asked by Sacramento Bee’s Matt Barrows, Harbaugh¬†said “Long standing policy we don’t talk about nobody who’s not one of our players and the personnel department looks at all available players.”

With Wright now off the board, that leaves the 49ers with an extra roster spot and with many free-agent cornerbacks on the roster, the question remains who will the 49ers pick up?
