Lions Free Agency 2012: CB Eric Wright Drawing Interest From San Francisco, Washington And Tampa Bay

Detroit Lions free agent cornerback Eric Wright is drawing interest from San Francisco, Washington and Tampa Bay, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Lions have been in contact with both Wright and his agent in hopes of re-signing the free agent, but Detroit doesn't have a ton of money to spend this offseason. Wright, 26, started all 16 games for the Lions last season, registering 74 tackles and four interceptions.

The 49ers are apparently quite enamored with Wright and expected to make a push to bolster their secondary. Wright graduated from Archbishop Riordan High School in San Francisco, Calif.

Detroit is thin in the secondary and especially at the cornerback position, but they certainly can't afford to overpay for Wright.
