SANTA CLARA -- Cornerback Eric Wright is new to the 49ers but they're aren't new to him, having grown up in the shadows of Candlestick Park.
Wright, who hasn't met with the media since his Aug. 8 signing, posted a few videos on his personal Web site to share his feelings on being a 49er and growing up a fan of the franchise.
Said Wright: "I grew up right in the heart of San Francisco: Hunters Point, the Bayview district. I grew up on Third and Oakdale, a couple places off of Third Street, and pretty much blocks away from Candlestick Park.
"It's kind of a rough neighborhood but growing up there was a lot of fun. Everybody was big sports fans, big 49ers fans. ... Regular kid life.
"It's always been a lifelong dream for me to play for the 49ers, not just in the NFL. When you think about it at that age, I saw myself in red and gold."
Wright was seen Tuesday doing individual conditioning on a side field for the first time since being signed Aug. 8. He had been dealing with a personal issue.
He'll remain on the non-football-injury list for at least the season's first six weeks. Wright initially was traded from the Buccaneers to the 49ers in July but he failed a physical exam and the deal was voided.
Wright has 14 career interceptions in six seasons, the first four of which were with the Cleveland Browns before one-year stints with the Detroit Lions and Buccaneers.
