49ers miss out on TE Brock Wright as Lions match offer

The 49ers won’t be doubling their Brock collection, after all.

Over the weekend, the team signed restricted free agent Brock Wright to an offer sheet, but the Lions, for whom Wright played the last three years, announced Wednesday that they will match the offer. Wright will earn $12 million ($6 million guaranteed) over a three-year deal, according to ESPN.

Detroit had tendered Wright a one-year offer of just below $3 million to maintain the right of refusal if Wright signed an offer sheet elsewhere.

The 49ers are still seeking a second tight end to pair with George Kittle and spell him at times. Charlie Woerner left in free agency for the Falcons, leaving the 49ers with two players entering their second year behind Kittle on the depth chart.
