Found March 23, 2013 on The Bay Cave:
The general consensus has been that the Buccaneers will part ways with cornerback Eric Wright via a release. Today, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Bucs are shopping Wright per sources.  Wright lost his grievance he filed to retain his 2013 salary from the Bucs after the legal process ruled against him. He was scheduled to make $7.75 million, fourth highest in the league (and higher than Darrelle Revis). In order for a Wright trade to happen though, Wright would have to have his contract restructured, which Florio also mentions. My belief is that the Buccaneers will wind up cutting him as previously reported. The idea of the Bucs possibly keeping Wright has been tossed around lately as a fall back option. But as Joe Bucs Fan mentions, this could mean that Tampa Bay is confident enough they will land Revis. Sure that’s speculative. But I agree.

Report: Buccaneers Looking to Trade Cornerback Eric Wright

The Buccaneers are looking to move troubled cornerback Eric Wright, but it may be easier to fill out a perfect NCAA Tournament bracket than it will be for Tampa Bay to find a trade partner. That’s because Wright is owed $7.75 million in 2013, and none of that contract is guaranteed because Wright was suspended four games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy...

Report: Buccaneers Trying To Trade CB Eric Wright

Wright, 27, signed a five-year deal worth $38 million that included $15.5 million guaranteed with Tampa Bay last year.

The Buccaneers go to the thrift shop

No they are not shopping for cheaper prices on Darrelle Revis. Instead, The Buccaneers’ mascot Captain Fear, the cheerleaders, and Gerald McCoy all are apart of a parody video to the song “Thrift Shop” which you can see below.  Nice way to get away from all the trade rumors. The post The Buccaneers go to the thrift shop appeared first on The Bay Cave.

Bucs losing out on Brent Grimes

As the Bucs were reportedly linked to cornerback Brent Grimes, it appears they may lose out on him now. According to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN, Grimes has an offer from another team.  The Cleveland Browns reportedly have an offer for a multiyear deal on the table and that may make them the favorite to land Grimes. The Bucs also might want to consider making a strong offer. While...

Jets “not clear” if Bucs’ 13th pick is enough

According to league sources...

Report: Jets not expected to cave to the Bucs’ trade demands

According to Rich Cimini of, people who know Jets’ general manager John Idzik don’t believe he’ll end up giving in to the Buccaneers trade demands of giving up their first and second round picks in 2014, opposed to this year’s first and next year’s second round picks. Idzik should ask for this year’s No. 1 and next year’s No. 2 from the Bucs. That would...

Former Detroit Lions’ Stanton and Wright on opposite paths

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” And with the help of their agents, Drew Stanton and Eric Wright left the Detroit Lions, finding truth in the passage by Dr. Suess.
