Make Tim Wright The No. 3 Receiver?October 15th, 2013
Immediately after the Bucs-Eagles game, Joe floated the idea that emerging rookie tight end Tim Wright and his wide receiver frame might be best suited as the Bucs’ No. 3 wide receiver right now, especially with Tom Crabtree returning to the lineup.
On Monday morning, former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht suggested the same thing during an interview on WDAE-AM 620.
It’s been dreadful for the Bucs at No. 3 receiver. Kevin Ogletree couldn’t hold the ball, and Tiquan Underwood looked lost Sunday in his first game back off the couch.
Yesterday, Wright coming off seven catches for 91 yards against the Eagles, talked about how he’s learning the difference in how linebackers cover him versus defensive backs, and he explained how he’s been preparing as a starter since he was the fifth string tight end in training camp. You can hear more from Wright, including his Rutgers-man perspective on Greg Schiano, in the WDAE-AM 620 audio below.
