One season after they signed then-free agent cornerback Eric Wright, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trying to trade him way, reports Pro Football Talk.
Via the PFT source, the 27-year old Wright is on the trade block after his rocky 2012 season that didn't quite impress, in addition to his 4-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Per NFL.com: ' 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. He filed a grievance against the team on the matter and lost, so if the Buccaneers can't get anything for him, Wright is bound to be released.
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. '
