Will Team Glazer Influence Wright Decision?March 25th, 2013
Bucs fans will soon find out the Tampa Bay fate of letdown cornerback Eric Wright, known for drug suspensions, spa days while suspended and, to be fair, arguably the best interception return in Bucs history.
But Joe’s now wondering whether Team Glazer will exercise executive powers and order rockstar general manager Mark Dominik to rid the Bucs of Wright because Wright is not the new breed of Buccaneer Man.
Speaking to Tampa Tribune veteran eye-RAH! Kaufman at the NFL owners meetings, Joel Glazer explained that the Bucs have little tolerance for those of questionable character.
Q: The Bucs have had their share of off-field incidents in recent years. With all the talk about character, does the franchise have to do even more due diligence in researching players?
A: That’s a tremendous focus for us and nothing disturbs us more than an incident with a player. It puts a bad shine on the organization. It’s not good for the player and our tolerance has definitely gotten shorter. We just can’t tolerate role models not upholding the highest character of our community.
Hmm, has Wright upheld the highest character of our community?
Look Joe’s not expecting a bunch of choir boys on the Bucs. Hell, DaQuan Bowers is a real-life choir boy, and he’s rolling around packing heat in the wrong places.
But Joe’s not feeling anything good from Wright. He’s overpaid, underperforming, banged up, and the Bucs have the chance to cut him without financial consequence and sign one of several other cornerbacks on the market. It should be an easy decision.
