Report: Drug Suspension Looms For Eric WrightOctober 28th, 2012
Reliable FOX NFL reporter Jay Glazer, via ProFootballTalk.com, is reporting this afternoon that Wright is facing a four-game suspension for taking performance-enhanching ADD drug Adderrall without a prescription and/or permission from the NFL.
Joe’s not going to go all crazy until this is, indeed, official. But this is just preposterous, if true. Wright signed for huge guaranteed money in March. The guy didn’t even have much “pressure” on him to perform, if there ever is an excuse for letting your team down and cheating.
Joe’s now wondering whether Wright’s undisclosed non-football medical issue early in training camp had anything to do with this potential suspension.
If nothing else, a Wright suspension would all but guarantee that Aqib Talib will be a big part of the Bucs’ plans down the stretch this season. And it also means the football gods continue to insist that Myron Lewis stays gainfully employed.
