Wright placed a photo of a 49ers contract on his Instagram account, and a source confirmed Tuesday that Wright has agreed to a new deal, CSNBayArea.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Obviously this isn't exactly a foolproof source, but with the release of Carlos Rogers, it looks like Wright will be staying in the Bay Area. Terms of the alleged contract have not yet been released, but an official announcement will likely come soon. Wright played in seven games and recorded eight tackles and one interception in limited action, but also has the versatility to play the nickel back position.
Though he wasn't credited with any tackles during the game, Wright did a solid job in the secondary and came down with the interception on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's final pass attempt of the game, sealing the 49ers' 19-17 victory on Sunday.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Eric Wright.

2012

Wright is a cornerback with an extensive history of giving up catches, which equates to easy tackles for IDP owners. Indeed, in his five-year career Wright has produced at a per-game rate that projects to an average of 69 tackles (62 solo) per season. He has even shown some ability to make plays on the ball, intercepting 13 passes (returning one for a touchdown) and defending 63 passes in his career. Wright should be a solid IDP backup at the least this year, especially in leagues that reward points for passes defended.

2010

He will start at cornerback for the Browns this season, although it is unclear whether or not he will be No. 1 with the addition of Sheldon Brown from Philadelphia. Either way, he should have a better season with a much improved defensive backfield in Cleveland.

2009

Wright is not one of the elite corners in the league, but he makes a fair amount of tackles for his position and has shown promise as a ball-hawk. A reason to be pessimistic about Wright is that the Browns are often playing from behind and having teams opt to use to run more often than the pass. If the Browns' defense proves to be tougher than it was in 2008, he could garnish some IDP value.

2008

Wright had an impressive rookie campaign in 2007 racking up 71 tackles, one sack and an interception despite missing two games. The departure of Leigh Bodden will mean that Wright will be relied on more in his second season. Expect the numbers to improve across the board.

2007

He should have been picked higher than the third round in the draft, but off the field shennanigans proved to be his downfall and the Browns' gain. He can be an impact player and will compete for a starting spot in the Browns' secondary.
