Report: Eric Wright Was To Be Cut

July 19th, 2013

Given how he had a very team-friendly contract and, apparently, Bucs suits had grown weary of Eric Wright’s me-first attitude, Joe was only surprised at the Eric Wright trade from the timing, not that the Bucs washed their hands of the mistake.

It seems Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik pulled off another Houdini act of trading a player who was about to be released. Well-plugged in Albert Breer of NFL Network claims the Bucs were going to cut Wright until they found a suitor in the 49ers.

@AlbertBreer: Per source, Buccaneers were planning to cut Eric Wright had they not found a trade partner.

Dominik must be breathing easy tonight. Imagine if that dope Wright hadn’t been busted for Adderall (?) last year and suspended by the NFL, which kicked in a clause that the Bucs could void his two-year contract? Yes, the Bucs were awful at corner last year, and two years ago, which all but forced Dominik to overpay for Wright.

Thankfully for the Bucs and Dominik in particular, Wright was too stupid for his own good.

    Looks like Myron Lewis can sleep a little better tonight. Joke!

    Rick Stroud tweeted that he got arrested last week on suspicion of DUI.

    lol, and this was the big free agent the pop-star brought in… This was his 8 million dollar a year star corner. the pop-star is some evaluator. ROFLLLLMAOOOOO

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Never was and never could be a “Buccaneer Man”…..Wright’s character is as bankrupt as his former team’s city.
    I’d rather take our chances with depth on younger players with good attitudes.
    The message continues to be sent. Cop an attitude and you are GONE!!!

    @Buc Realist

    Mistakes were and are made….but at least the “pop star” had the wisdom to cut him loose.
    My greatest fear, however is that this helps to save a roster spot for Myron.

    Why do you get off so much on your hatred of Dominik? Funny how you don’t praise him for bringing in V-Jax or Carl Nicks. Funny how you don’t mention any of his good draft picks. Funny how you don’t mention we have 8 Pro Bowlers currently on the team. Every GM makes mistakes, every coach makes mistakes. Look at the Patriots as a perfect example. Yes, he screwed up with Wright. I’m sure he’d be the first to admit that. At least he moves pretty damn swiftly in correcting his mistakes. I’m glad you are having a great day because we got some bad news for our team, but don’t ever wonder why so many people on this site would love to meet you in person.

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I fail to see any reason to “lol” for any Buc fan.

    Please get word back to the highly overrated fat ass known as Donald Penn to keep his big mouth shut and have the tram’s best interests in mind. I’m so sick of hearing about how great fat ass Donald Penn is while he continues to run his mouth, when its not stuffed with junk food, voicing his displeasure over personnel moves. Donald, stick to being the overrated, mediocre, loudmouth piece of crap you’ve been for years.

    were was this wisdom last year, were was the wisdom during free agency we the bucs could have got solid corners for very cheap. The pop-star sucks!!! just cause he wasted a several millions of dollars and 2 years on this clown to claim a 7th or 6th round bottom pick is not “wisdom”

  10. the_buc_realist Says:

    he gets credit for VJ. Great free agent pick. ( actually it might be his only one) . As Nicks only played 5 games then got hurt and limped around for 2 games. other than that it is total failure.

    Go Bucs, (cause maybe we can win 3rd place in the division.)

  11. Andrew 1 Says:

    GOOD RIDDANCE!!! I cant believe it, Im dancing over here while most of you guys are sulking. this just in- THE GUY WASNT EVEN A GOOD CB. he was average at best. add that to him also being a douchbag and its enough to loath the guy. Id rather have Joe out there covering somebody.

  12. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    So he’s at fault for Nicks getting hurt? Should he have not gone after the best guard in the NFL? So who’s to say if he got one of those great FA CB’s that you speak of, they wouldn’t get hurt too? So am I to believe that he is supposed to know who is going to get hurt and who isn’t? Nicks had never missed a game. So if Goldson stays healthy, did that meet the approval of the great realist? You have probably posted 10 times today, and every single one of them is about your secret man-crush Mark Dominik. Get a life homie.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @buc realist

    You have no earthly idea what was going on between Wright and the GM/Managers/teamates….
    Perhaps their are other things going on we don’t yet know about. You seem to be pretty good at “monday morning quarterbacking”. I doubt you can present any past posts at the time we acquired Wright.
    Maybe….just maybe, you could cut some slack here. How about crawling all over San Francisco for being so stupid as to give up even a 7th round pick for such a worthless player with a bad attitude.

  14. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Go Bucs, (cause maybe we can win 3rd place in the division.)”

    Statements like this can only be made from a true arse hole. Who’s to say we aren’t good enough to win the division? Has anybody ever listed that as a goal? The worst part is, you seem to somehow derive pleasure from making these types of statements. You must lead a miserable, lonely life. I feel sorry for you.

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @buc realist

    And….by the way, it wasn’t two years wasted….it was one!!!

  16. BuccFanInHawkeyeCountry Says:

    Wow Dominik haters are crazy. People never make mistakes. Robert Kraft n them should be fired too right. I mean they drafted Aaron Hernandez. Got hayensworth n Ocho cinco. Traded for aqib and Blount. Drafted Alfonzo denard. Terrible owner. Call for his head!

  17. You Go Joe Says:


    Wait you stopped laughing ?? I thought you were ROFLMAO for losing depth of our team. It was a stupid deal, the worse of the 3 major additions last year. However 2 out of 3 works out really good for us. And hell last years best CB was Brandon Carr and he sucked on the field. There wasn’t any real gold gem that would of been better than Wright. At least to my knowledge.

    The acquisition of Wright was wrong from the start, and it ended in a neutral note. He was traded after getting really nothing out of him. It was a bad move.

    Also this as a personal note, STFU! You get a boner with negative news with the bucs and never be a real fan and support them.

  18. Buc'n Junkie Says:

    Keep in mind it is a conditional late round draft pick. Hopefully Wright meets those conditional terms for us to receive that draft pick. I don’t no the conditions. Sometimes it can be passing a physical to making the 53 man roster to satisfy the terms of the condition.

  19. Bubba Says:

    Wright was arrested for misdemeanor DUI July 12 1100 Block of South Grand in Los Angeles by LAPD Officer Cleon Joseph

  20. Andrew 1 Says:

    hes talib without the talent. sure our cb position takes a bit of a hit, but id much rather take our chances without him than with him.

  21. TNBucsFan Says:

    Now if we could only trade the_buc_realist

  22. Jbskiff Says:

    @realist. There is nothing real about your posts. I don’t like petitions but if I did guess who would be the subject of one. Maybe you have forgotten about Thomas and Maguel. Take a Frigging Clue! Shape Up or Ship Out.

  23. Eric Says:

    Ah it’s the ole “we were awful at the position so we were forced to overpay” excuse.

    Yea right.

    A rookie at corner in NFC South. Should work beautifully.

    Dom is Houdini. His team does the water tank trick every year.

  24. scubog Says:

    Many thought Wright should have been released after last season’s indiscretion, with no compensation. Why now, after giving Wright a second chance and collecting something in return, is this criticized by Realist. Dis you want him cut in 2012? Surely even you are “realistic” enough to know not all draft picks or free agent signings are a success.
