Buccaneers CB Eric Wright On The Trading Block
ProFootballTalk reported Saturday that the team is trying to trade 27-year-old cornerback Eric Wright, according to a league source. The Bucs repeatedly have been mentioned as a potential suitor for New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, but moving Wright has more to do with his ultra-rocky 2012 campaign.
Wright's season with the Bucs was marred by average play and a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Wright -- who still has four more years on his contract -- lost $1.7 million in game checks during the ban and can be cut without costing the Buccaneers a cent because of the suspension.
Nobody's lining up to pay Wright's $7.75 million salary for 2013, so unless he agrees to a deep pay cut, the prospects of shopping him are dim.
