Former USC cornerback Shareece Wright signs a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers

Former USC cornerback Shareece Wright, who played four seasons with the San Diego Chargers, has signed a free-agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

Wright, 27, signed a one-year contract on Saturday. NFL.com reported the deal was worth $3 million, with an opportunity to make as much as $4 million.

The 5-foot-11, 182-pound Wright played at USC from 2006-10 and was selected by the Chargers in the third round of the 2011 draft.

"Truly blessed and honored to be part of the @49ers family, thank you #NinerEmpire for welcoming me," Wright wrote on Twitter.

Wright intercepted one pass last season.

Wright joins a 49ers team that includes center Marcus Martin and also tight end Xavier Grimble, who signed a reserve/future contract in December.
