Goodbye, Eric WrightDecember 30th, 2012
Joe might stop calling rockstar general manager Mark Dominik “rockstar” if Eric Wright returns to the Bucs in 2013, especially if Wright returns with the same bloated contract that is set to pay him $7.75 million next season.
There’s no reason for it. Dominik must see that.
Wright was healthy and very well rested entering today’s game following a four-game substance abuse suspension and a California spa/beach getaway.
Wright practiced all week but was not activated today. The FOX TV cameras caught him sitting on the Bucs bench in street clothes.
Joe sincerely hopes that’s the proverbial writing on the wall. Joe can’t fathom how Wright is what Greg Schiano calls “a Buccaneer Man” and how his return is in the team’s best interest. Take Wright’s money and put it toward another veteran cornerback without a background in pills and funny business.
