Why do you suppose Wright was inactive, Ryan?

Maybe they wanted the guys who had practiced the last month to play in game situations.

That's not a reason to make Wright inactive, and I'm pretty sure you know that.



Bottom line is that they didn't save any money except in a circumstance relatively far fetched.

I think all involved know what the bottom line is, including Dominik and Wright.

Him getting hurt is not exactly far fetched.   I am sure Mike Smith thought the same about Abraham.

The issue involves getting hurt to the point in which he can't play again at the start of the next season. The amounts being thrown around are even more far fetched. It's an increase from the form $300k to $1mil for the first year and $500k if he can't play by the second year. So it's $1.2 mil in a pretty longshot theory.

Point takin.  But why risk it?   Its a business decision.

or it's not because it's a bit far fetched.

At this point, I would be shocked if he is back next season.

Perhaps Myron Lewis will share his copies of the infamous Dominik dossier with Eric...guaranteeing him a pay raise in 2013.

I don't think this is proof Wright will be cut, but I do think it proves there will be a renegotiation of Wright's contract - at the very least.  Otherwise, there is no other reasonable explanation as to why Wright wasn't in uniform.

Pay him what he's worth or let him go - I am good with that - can always use experienced players as #4-6 cbs....

He seems like the type of guy that would scoff at what the Bucs determine is his worth.  Then bolt.

Wright is a goner. The Bucs will cut him in the offseason and void his contract and save $8 million a year. You can add that to the nearly $30 million they already have under the cap next year. If Black is let go...you can add another $5 million. The Bucs could go into the offseason with $43 million under the cap. That's definitely enough to land a top DE and CB along with possibly adding in a RT to compete with Dotson, a LB to replace Black, and a TE to replace Clark (as I am not sure if he comes back). Some of that money might go to Bennett but I'd still like to see another DE brought in. Bennett, Bowers, and Clayborn haven't shown they can get consistent pressure on the QB.

Whoa...shiver me ****in timbers!

LOL...no seriously, "M-Lew" has got to be replaced this offseason.

They have not had the chance with McCoy getting injured.  With all of them healthy, I think they will be ok.  They knocked off all the silly stunts today, and got pressure.

Atlanta doesn't have a great O-line and only 2 DEs can be on the field at a time and Bennett and Bowers played okay but not great. Clayborn has a high motor but he will never be more than a 10 sack guy. I'd like to see Bowers and Clayborn play more next year and be healthy...but I still want a DE that every down is scaring the o-line. The only guy on the D-line right now that scares the other team is McCoy. We need one more.

Whoa...shiver me ****in timbers!
