Bucs could release Eric Wright during offseason

Eric Wright, who could be released in the offseason, may have played his final game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers feeling buyer's remorse? After signing cornerback Eric Wright during last year's free agency period, it is possible the veteran could have played his final game with the organization, according to Mark Cook of the Pewter Report.

Wright started and played in ten games for Tampa Bay, but is now likely to be released during the offseason. It could happen before the Buccaneers begin their offseason workouts. In those ten games, Wright made 34 tackles and intercepted one pass, which he ran back for a touchdown.

The defensive back lost favor with the Bucs after being banned for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy. Tampa Bay activated Wright after he served his four-game suspension from the league, but the team didn't play him in a game.

Tampa Bay already has dealt with a similar situation, trading cornerback Aqib Talib after he, too, was suspended for violating the league's PED policies.
