SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have acquired cornerback Eric Wright in a trade with Tampa Bay that sends a conditional selection in the 2014 draft to the Buccaneers.

The teams announced the deal Friday, one week after Wright was arrested in Los Angeles on an unspecified misdemeanor charge. He was released after posting bond.

Last season, Wright was suspended for four games by the NFL for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy in his first - and only - season with the Bucs. He signed a five-year, $35.3 million contract with Tampa Bay after a strong season in Detroit, and in 10 games last year, Wright finished with 37 tackles and one interception.

In 2011 with the Lions, Wright started 16 games and had four interceptions.

He will join a crowded secondary and crop of cornerbacks, including Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver and Nnamdi Asomugha.

``We are pleased to add Eric to our team,'' said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. ``As an organization, we have done our due diligence and anticipate Eric working hard to contribute to the 49ers.''

The 49ers announced earlier Friday that they had waived cornerback Lowell Rose, who was signed as an undrafted free agent May 7.
