Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have put CB Eric Wright on the trading block. Wright, 27, signed a five-year deal worth $38 million that included $15.5 million guaranteed with Tampa Bay last year. This was a surprising move by the Bucs given that Wright hadn’t done all that much to justify such a deal in the previous years. The Buccaneers caught a break after Wright was suspended for four games for violating the league’s policy against performance-enhancing substances. This in turn eliminated the guarantees included in his contract. With Tampa Bay already in the process of finding a new cornerback, it makes sense for them to gauge the level of interest in Wright, but it’s doubtful that they’ll be able to find any team willing to part with draft compensation for him at point in time. The Bucs are the odds on favorites to trade for Jets CB Darrelle Revis, but progress has been reportedly slow and there are upgrades still available in the free agent market. If they’re unable to find a trade partner for Wright, it seems very likely that they would ultimately decide to cut him loose.
