Eric Wright Still With Team… For NowOctober 29th, 2012
No, the Bucs have no plans to get rid of cornerback Eric Wright. He’s still with the team, and is. Today at One Buc Palace, Wright could be seen sweating on a stationary bike, nursing a minor injury.
Yesterday, of course, Wright made NFL news indirectly when he was fingered by NFL insider Jay Glazer as being caught, testing positive for Adderall, an NFL banned substance.
If true, and no one from the Bucs nor the NFL has denied the report, Wright is looking at a four-game suspension, just like fellow Bucs starting cornerback Aqib Talib, who has one more game to go to serve his sentence.
The fact that Wright was at One Buc Palace Monday is evidence he has yet to be suspended. Once a player is suspended, he cannot step foot on team premises nor speak with any club employee.
It will be very interesting for Joe come mid-afternoon when Bucs coach Greg Schiano meets with the Tampa Bay pen and mic club for his regularly scheduled press conference.
