On Monday, Eric Wright wrote in his blog how he aided in the signing of Dashon Goldson. He also stated he views Goldson as a brother. Nothing was known from Goldson’s side until now.  In an interview with Goldson and 98.7 The Fan’s Justin “The Commish” Pawlowski (scheduled to air Friday at 10am), the new Buccaneers safety opened up about Wright. Before my visit {to Tampa Bay} I reached out to Eric Wright who’s a good friend of mine. I just asked him about the city, how is the team and the mindset, how were the players in the locker room, and the coaching staff, and he had nothing but good things to say. He also went on to talk about how he feels he can help Wright turn things around. I definitely feel that I can be the person that can help guide him and be a positive role model and help him get back to that player he was and I know he can be. Now, I have written and talked about how the Buccaneers would not be retaining Wright’s services. Others have also written about his possible departure as well. But what if a good “friendship” is what he needs to turn things around as Goldson suggests? Everyone has their own comfort level. Perhaps Eric Wright was way out of his comfort zone last season. New faces, new atmosphere. Everything could have forced Wright to play well below the value of his contract. Not saying he is a superstar but what if a familiar face is what he needs in the locker room? With that face being Dashon Goldson. In order for the Bucs to keep Wright though, an amendment or restructure to his contract is required after his 2013 salary was voided. He would also have to agree to it. So the questions surrounding the Bucs secondary continue this offseason. What may be answered is whether or not Tampa Bay keeps Eric Wright after all. Especially with how this cornerback market has been. The post Dashon Goldson: Eric Wright is a “good friend” appeared first on The Bay Cave.
