The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded cornerback Eric Wright to the San Francisco 49ers for a conditional 2014 NFL Draft pick, according to multiple reports.

After signing a five-year, $37.5 million contract in 2012, Wright was arrested for a DUI and was suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy last season. Wright lost $1.7 million in salary during his four-game ban.

Wright, a six-year veteran, signed a reconstructed deal with the Buccaneers in April and was reportedly on "thin ice" with the Bucs and any minor hiccup would have sealed his fate as a Buccaneer. The reconstructed deal saved the Buccaneers $7.75 million of guaranteed salary to Wright.

Wright started in 10 games for the Buccaneers last season, amassing 39 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery. Wright has played for the Buccaneers, Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns during his six years in the NFL.
