Quarterback Kyle Wright was claimed off the waiver wire from the Minnesota Vikings who signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent. With the depth of quarterbacks stacking up the Niners released former UCLA QB Drew Olson in order to make room on the roster.
Wright went to Danville Monte Visita High School in the Bay Area which allowed him to attend the 49ers Local Pro Day that was held before the NFL Draft. He must have impressed the Niner scouts and fellow Miami Hurricane Frank Gore who was in attendance for the pro day workout. Wright will most likely take Olson’s spot on the practice squad. He was an honorable mention All-ACC in 2005.
