Tim Wright Has A New FanApril 27th, 2014
It took little time for him to learn he’s got a very talented teammate at his position.
That talent would be Tim Wright, who has added 80 ounces of muscle and now weighs 235 pounds, so he told Joe. Wright said he’s confidently and slowly building a tight end’s body — to go with his fantastic hands.
Wright looked in midseason form during last week’s minicamp at One Buc Palace, using his long (6-4) frame and arms, and body control, to haul in balls from Josh McCown.
Myers has been one of the most productive tight ends in football the past two seasons, hauling in 79 balls with the Raiders in 2012, followed by 47 catches with the Giants last year.
So Mr. Myers, what do you think of Tim Wright?
“Oh, man. First, he’s a great kid, man. He’s a good person. I enjoy hanging out with him, talking to him and getting to know him. On the field he’s definitely explosive,” Myers said. “He can definitely stretch the defense. He can definitely make plays. He’s going to be huge for us.”
Bottom line: Myers sees Wright as a great complement to what he offers, and he believes there’s plenty of room for both to be dynamic contributors in Jeff Tedford’s offense.
Joe is interested to see how the tight end position plays out, considering Tedford is known for his fascination with multiple-tight-end sets.
