Eric Wright Returns

December 24th, 2012

The leader of the New Schiano Order said suspended Eric Wright will rejoin the Bucs in preparation for Sunday’s season finale in Atlanta.

Speaking to media this afternoon, Greg Schiano said he was confident Wright would be in good aerobic condition but his “football shape” was unclear.

Bucs players were given the day off today and return to the practice field Wednesday. Wright was strugging with an Achilles injury before serving his four-game suspension for substance abuse, allegedly for Adderral.

Wright has Twittered out pictures of himself training in recent days, and he advised fans of his much needed spa and dining weekend while the Bucs were getting clobbered in New Orleans.

    Save the $$ and cut him loose already!

    If Wright plays another down as a Buc Schiano’s credibility is gone.

    This team is a Soap Opera! !!!!! gonna be interesting to see how both sides handle this. Eric is due a $500,000 workout bonus in a few months….

    The sad thing about Wright. He is better than what we have to throw out there. I say use him. Let him get run over a couple of times so he feels like crap the next day. Just like the rest of the guys that are getting paid a helluva lot less.

  5. st augustine Says:

    the solution is simple: given this guys history he needs to meet us halfway. if not, then yes, we have to move on without him. the ‘risk/reward’ is not worth it what we are paying. not even close!

  6. Ian's Gay Lisp & Ron's Drinking Problem Says:

    Wright won’t play….because if and when he gets hurt…they’ll owe him a big injury settlement (just like they’ll have to do with Quincy Black) and that money counts against the Salary Cap too…….

  7. MadMax Says:

    @Ian….word baby. Thank you.

  8. Nate Says:

    WE should trade him with freeman and our number 1 pick to KC for Geno Smith.. Or Ryan Mallet!

    This guy has been a bust! Its either been injury or pills keeping him off of the field, and when he has been on the field, I didn’t notice any real upgrade to what we had yesterday. He doesn’t seem like a “Buccaneer Man” to me with his tweets or other behavior. He seems like a Diva which will cause troubles in the locker room. I’d like to see him cut loose.

    Good to have Eric Wright back for the playoff run.


    Just get the man off my favorite football team. Swing and a miss, it happens in free agency to the best of teams. The signing didn’t work, keep Wright inactive and cut him during the offseason. We can do better.

    We paid way too much for this turd. He wasn’t that good in the 1st palce. Ask his old team. Every contract we write should have substance abuse clause. Every one of them. Also, Ahmad Black was the Buc that said Schiano should go back to the college ranks. you heard it here 1st. He has said it more than once. Ask him next time you see him Joe.

  12. RachelWatson'sthong Says:

    Place not palce, of course.

  13. Jwayne Says:

    I would rather lose without him, than lose with him…It’s just a slap in the face letting this guy play this week!

    Why all the hateing on Eric Wright?Ya he get’s a lot of money (Not his fault).He is our best corner by far.If the ref’s didn’t rob him of a scoop and score in that Dallas game.Maybe we win that game.But I agree if we can void that contract we should.To free up cash to sign DRC.Vick will probably want 10 million per so if we could sign him for 2 year’s.We can draft a QB this year or next.At 8.5 million they might not be able to get anything for Freeman.They should trade Freeman to the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL for 100 pound’s of Canadian bacon.I would rather have Freeman than Alex Smith or Tebow.My vote is Vick with a strong running game.Reid just want’s to make Vick throw 80 percent of the time.With scared WR and a bad O-line he is doomed.50/50 run to pass Vick will be a beast.Team’s will have nightmares trying to defend one of the best RBs in the league,an elite #1 WR maybe the best #2WR in the league oh ya and if they have them covered.Vick will run.Playoff’s even if the defence suck’s.

    Eric Wright is in some ways like Joe. He knows how to whet your appetite to rush to the keyboard! Not a bad strategy to stay relevant!

  16. 76buc76 Says:

    Just ask his old team?Gee I think a team that made the playoff’s last year with him.That as of now has 4 win’s.Probably misses any player they lost in the off season lol

  17. Nate Says:

    Id rather have alex smith at this point!

  18. CanadianBucsFan Says:


    How do you forsure know it was Black that said that ?

  19. RastaMon Says:

    Awkward…week for Eric Wright…….very awkward locker room for him

  20. MadMax Says:

    @76 Im down with the Vick prospect. Probably wouldnt be as expensive as going after Geno. But all said and done, I really hope we go after Geno.

  21. Nick2 Says:

    Apparently the best treatment for a torn achilles is a good mud bath with a bottle of Crystal.

  22. Nick2 Says:

    Josh Freeman to Eric Wright “Ummm hey Eric I know when you got suspended we were in the middle of a playoff chase. Well lets go have a drink and I will tell you what happened…..”

  23. Rajah Says:

    Wright is pill poppin loser. The hell with him.

  24. ladyz Says:

    Schiano is smart enough to let ” mr aderal ” ride this game out on the bench. Just have to accept the fact that Mr Wright turned out to be Mr Wrong. Not a Buccaneer Man. Kenny Rogers said it best, “you got to know when to hold them and know when to fold them.”. Merry Christmas !

  25. Rajah Says:

    @ladyz right on sista. This dude is an cancerous abomination to this franchise, and well hell any franchise to boot. I see why the D didn’t want this dope fiend. Get rid of this fiend load now I say. He isn’t worth his excessive baggage and wasn’t he accused of rape a while back. Ladyz plz answer me this from a woman to man……why are some of you ladys attracted to asre clowns like this who obviously have no respect towards your gender at all? I just don’t get it?
