Bucs Q&A: Is CB Wright worth keeping around?

 By TBO.com
 Published: February 11, 2013


 
Q: I know cornerback Eric Wright was hurt most of the year, and suspended four weeks. But, did we see him play a whole game at 100 percent? I know he messed up, but based only on his play is he worth another chance?
 
Richard Wade, Pinellas Park


A: I'm not sure there is a 100 percent for Eric Wright. He's one of those guys who always seems to be hampered by something, and it's not always a physical ailment either. The Bucs feel as if they overpaid for Wright last year so my guess is they will try to rework his deal and keep him around. If that doesn't happen they may try to re-sign him through free agency again. He knows their scheme, which is a plus, and there isn't a lot else out there in free agency this year that appears significantly better. Put it all together and the Bucs may not have much choice but to give him a second chance.

Q: Why not two (or three) bye weeks per year extend the season for fans, player health, more revenues, etc.
 
Kenneth Free, Largo
 
A: I have long been a proponent of a second bye week the week of Christmas. It would allow for teams to take a much-needed break at a key time in the season and on the social and religious calendar.
 
Roy Cummings



Q: My way of thinking is the Bucs must have an edge rusher that other teams will have to game plan for getting to the quarterback. That has to be a top priority whether using the 13th pick or free agent.
 
Michael Rose, Minneola, Fla.
 
A: If you mean another besides Adrian Clayborn, Michael Bennett and Da'Quan Bowers, I'm not sure I agree. I believe each of those is good enough to force opponents to game plan for them. The key is keeping them all healthy.
 
Roy Cummings



Q: Assuming the Bucs sign Michael Bennett and keep him and Adrian Clayborn comes back at full strength, where does that leave Da'Quan Bowers? Moving Bennett inside on passing downs with Bowers on the end?
 
Preston Hemmerich, New York City
 
A: That's pretty much how I see it. The Bucs have long sought to have a third-down D-line of Bowers, Bennett, Gerald McCoy and Clayborn. They think that would be pretty potent.

Dom's move for Wright was a filler. Finn wasn't coming here and the rest were arguably worse or the same off as Wright was at the time.

 But again, as it was last season, we had nothing else to bargain for when it came to FA CB's. This of season however, begs a different story. It was indeed a mistake, but one I could live with. At least the man tried to do something.

Wright being a wimpy wannabe thug finally caught up with him. No more, no less IMO.

Tracy Porter and Aaron Ross could have both been had for the price of Wright and both would have been better options.
