Eric Wright has to restructure his contract to remain with the Buccaneers

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE


Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times spoke with Mark Dominik today, and he had some interesting thoughts to share. Given the fact that we're all wondering about the team's problems at cornerback, we can start with that. Dominik essentially said that Eric Wright would probably be released, and his only chance at remaining with the team would be to accept a new contract. Whether the Bucs will even offer him a new contract will be determined after the owners' meeting, which ends on Wednesday.

 
Eric Wright's second-year guarantee was voided after a four-game PED suspension, meaning the Bucs can essentially cut him right now with no further cap penalties. At a hefty $7.75 million salary, they're almost sure to do that if he doesn't agree to a cheaper contract. Wright has no leverage whatsoever in this matter, but he is still clearly the Bucs' best cornerback. The Bucs are attempting to trade for Darrelle Revis, but it remains to be seen whether and when that deal will go through.

In a little more surprising news, he also noted that they'd look at Matt Hasselbeck as a possible backup to Josh Freeman. I'm not sure how he sees an old, weak-armed quarterback fitting into the Bucs' throw-deep offense, but there you have it. Not that the Bucs are likely to lend Hasselbeck, he has a list of suitors looking for old, over-the-hill West Coast quarterbacks, apparently.

Finally, Dominik noted that they would only deal Legarrette Blount for the right price, as they realize Doug Martin can't do everything. We'll see whether that turns out to be true, or whether he walks for peanuts like Arrelious Benn did.

I dont doubt they re-ink Wright if Revis doesnt end up in Tampa. Simply cant move forward with whats left + rookies.

Meaning take a significant paycut or don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Most likely putting the idea out there to increase leverage a bit.

Jets have said they don't have to trade Revis, everyone knows they do.
Dom puts out the idea that we can restructure Wright and we don't need Revis, everyone knows we do.

Just suck it up, cut Wright, trade for Revis, move on.

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Dom "essentially" said it?

Where's the quote?

Did I miss it?

Some act like a Revis acquisition will be a cure all for our secondary woes. Someone still has to line up against Roddy White and Harry Douglas.

Getting pressure on Ryan will be more important than anything. I dont think even Revis can cover White or Julio for 7 seconds

That said If we have pressure, I think with the talent we would  have in Barron, Goldson, and Revis we could "get by" withh Leonard Johnson/EJ Biggers (worst case scenario) as the #2. "If" Revis is in the bag, I dont see the urgency to sign a #2 CB at this point. Outside of Grimes, theres a couple handfuls of names that no one is talking to that can be signed as #2 CBs.

Wright blows
and takes it.

Send this dude packing. Why have a disgruntled drug dealing liar of a CB who is not even good?!

He comes back for less and he will be unhappy as hell. Forget this sack of questionable elements. Deuce this dude.
