49ers cornerback Shareece Wright is seeking a trade or his release, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Wright inked a one year deal with San Francisco back in March but it appears he’s already dissatisfied with his role and itching to get out. Despite his sizable salary, Wright has been relegated to the bench so far in 2015.
Wright inked a one-year deal worth up to $5MM — $4MM in base salary and $1MM in incentives. That deal came hours after the 49ers lost Perrish Cox to the Titans. San Francisco’s other starting corner in 2014, Chris Culliver, also left the team in free agency to join Washington.
Wright started the past two seasons for the Chargers, where the former 2011 third-round pick out of USC drew a league-high eight pass interference penalties in 2014. The 28-year-old rated 105th out of 108 corners in Pro Football Focus’ 2014 grades (subscription required) and 103rd out of 110 graded performers the year prior.
