If you have been following the Eric Wright situation since his suspension, you know that odds have been against him in staying with the Buccaneers. And if you have been following since last offseason, you know that he may not have a chance in the grievance he filed. Pro Football Talk first reported the news Monday afternoon that cornerback Eric Wright had field a grievance to challenge the Buccaneers’ on their voiding of his contract. However, the chance of him winning his grievance is slim and here is why. Last July, after Wright was arrested in Los Angeles, I got a hold of the verbiage that goes into a player’s contract that protects a team from any player’s off-the-field antics. Within the contract, that specific clause states the following: if Player has engaged in personal conduct reasonably judged by Club to adversely affect or reflect on Club, then Club may terminate this contract. That is in any NFL player contract located in Section 11 “SKILL, PERFORMANCE AND CONDUCT” to help protect a team from any off field issue. In this case, Eric Wright’s suspension that was a result of him taking Adderall. Now there will not be a decision on the grievance field by Wright until Tuesday as mentioned in the Pro Football Talk article. But unless there is a loophole that Wright’s camp can find to not have his contract voided, it looks like the Bucs will indeed have an extra $7.75 million to add to their salary cap. If they cut him that is. The post Eric Wright may lose his challenege against the Bucs appeared first on The Bay Cave.
