Wright’s “Appeal Is Probably A Few Weeks Away”October 30th, 2012
FOX Sports NFL guru Jay Glazer, who broke the news on Eric Wright’s alleged looming suspension for Adderrall use, a report no Buccaneer official denied, now says Wright’s “appeal is probably a few weeks away.”
Glazer joined the Booger and Rich show on 98.7 FM yesterday and explained that Bucs officials, Wright and suspended Aqib Talib likely collaborated to lead Talib to forfeit his appeal option while Wright pursued his. Thus, the two cornerbacks would not be off the field simulaneously.
The NFL gives players ample time to appeal, Glazer explained, and Glazer said he still maintains hope that Wright can win his case and beat a suspension for violating the league’s drug policy. Glazer says he knows Wright personally and considers him a great guy.
Joe was intrigued by Glazer’s assertion that Talib likely worked with the Bucs to help Tampa Bay’s depth at the position. If true, it was a selfless move after a selfish move.
