Recent News's Ian Rapoport reports 49ers CB Shareece Wright wants to be traded or released.
The ex-Charger is playing on a one-year, $3 million contract, but has been a healthy scratch for each of the 49ers' first three games. Wright struggled mightily in each of 2013 and 2014, and boasts little leverage. Sep 28 - 5:26 PM

49ers signed CB Shareece Wright to a one-year, $3 million contract.

He can earn another $1 million in incentives. Wright should compete to be the 49ers' starting outside corner opposite Tramaine Brock, with Jimmie Ward playing the slot. One of the league's worst cover corners the past two seasons, Wright is a downgrade from Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox.

The 49ers are hosting free agent CB Shareece Wright on Friday.

This would be quite the downgrade from outgoing Chris Culliver. Going on age 28, Wright has been one of the league's worst cover corners the past two seasons. The Chargers letting him walk will be addition by subtraction.

Chargers CB Shareece Wright exited Week 16 against the 49ers with a concussion.

Wright took a big hit to the side of his helmet trying to prevent Bruce Ellington from scoring late in the second quarter. Wright stayed down on the turf for several minutes before being escorted into the locker room. He was ruled out in the second half.

Chargers CB Shareece Wright (knee) is practicing Wednesday.

Wright has missed the last two games, but is on track to return for Week 7. With Brandon Flowers (groin) questionable, he could start opposite Jason Verrett.

Early indications are that Chargers CB Shareece Wright sustained a sprained right MCL in Sunday's Week 4 game against the Jaguars.

Wright went down in the second quarter, leaving Richard Marshall opposite Brandon Flowers. First-round CB Jason Verrett (hamstring) was inactive.

Chargers 2011 third-round pick Shareece Wright handled first-team reps "throughout" OTA season opposite Derek Cox.

Cox is locked in at one corner, and Wright is the heavy favorite for the other job despite playing only 120 defensive snaps in 2012. It's one of the weaker positions on San Diego's roster. If the season began today, Wright and Cox would be the first-team outside cornerbacks with Johnny Patrick entering in sub-packages. Eric Weddle and Marcus Gilchrist would be the starting safeties.

The Chargers are "confident in" third-year CB Shareece Wright taking over the starting spot opposite Derek Cox.

The Bolts let both of last year's starters -- Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason -- go in free agency, and only signed Cox. Wright battled a high-ankle sprain and a partial tear of an ankle ligament last season, limiting him to ten games. The former third-round pick has never started a game, and he's played just 124 defensive snaps in two seasons. San Diego is woefully thin at corner.

Chargers CB Shareece Wright (ankle) has resumed practicing.

Wright suffered a high-ankle sprain on San Diego's season-opening kickoff, but could be ready for snaps in the slot as early as Monday. Even if Wright isn't ready to face the Broncos, he'll undoubtedly be ready to roll following the Bolts' Week 7 bye.

Chargers CB Shareece Wright is out 4-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain and partial tear of an ankle ligament.

He apparently won't be placed on injured reserve just yet. A 2011 third-round pick out of USC, Wright was coming on with a big training camp before going down in Week 1. The Chargers will be thin behind Quentin Jammer, Antoine Cason, and Marcus Gilchrist going forward. They also cut CB Greg Gatson on Monday.

Chargers third-round CB Shareece Wright (ankle) was on crutches and in a boot Wednesday.

Wright, who won the starting nickelback job in camp, went down on the opening kickoff of his first NFL game. Marcus Gilchrist came on in his place. The good news for the Chargers is that Quentin Jammer is going to play through a broken hand this week.

Third-round CB Shareece Wright (leg) has resumed practicing.

Wright missed 2-3 weeks of valuable camp reps while resting an unspecified muscle strain in his leg. He may be limited to special teams duty early in his rookie season.

Third-round CB Shareece Wright has missed the majority of training camp with an unspecified muscle strain in his leg.

Beat writer Kevin Acee suggests the missed reps are more of a concern than the actual injury. Wright could be headed toward the game-day inactive list to start the season.
Thu, Aug 11, 2011 03:26:00 PM

Chargers selected USC CB Shareece Wright with the No. 89 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Wright was oddly a favorite of draftniks, but he is a slightly built corner (5'11/182) and offers little in the way of physicality. He was also injury prone at USC and often struggled to keep his eligibility. Possessing little playmaking ability, this pick seems like a reach in the third round. Wright could pan out as a dime or nickel back, but that's a best-case scenario.
