Running back Jason Wright and the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to a two-year contract.

gained 85 yards in 23 carries last season and caught 22 passes for
156 yards.

Undrafted out of Northwestern, he signed with San Francisco in
2004 but was released following training camp. He played in two
games with the Atlanta Falcons before signing with the Browns in

Wright has 159 career carries for 588 yards, along with 55
receptions for 486 yards and one touchdown.

His signing helps fill the void left by the departure of J.J. Arrington to Denver.
