Former Browns Cornerback Eric Wright Signs With Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed former Cleveland Browns cornerback Eric Wright, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Wright’s deal will be for the next five years, but as of now, the financial terms are unknown.

The former second round pick of the Browns played just one year in Detroit, but he was a pretty important asset for their defense, netting 73 tackles and four interceptions. The Bucs have a desperate need at the cornerback position, so getting Wright is a pretty big move for them. He will likely be their top starter and they will have to add another as the futures of Ronde Barber and Aqib Talib are in doubt for very different reasons.

Wright has 13 career interceptions—nine in Cleveland—and should be a big addition for Tampa Bay.
