At times in his career, Browns cornerback Eric Wright has looked like a potential star.
We remember Shawn Springs saying on NFL Network that Wright was one of the five best cornerbacks in the league. Like so many young cornerbacks, however, Wright is streaky.
He started off this season poorly and things only snowballed from there. He was eventually benched for Joe Haden and Monday he was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
Wright is a free agent and could be an interesting pickup in the offseason. He’s young (25) and has a lot of experience. Still, his 2010 campaign has crushed his chances of getting a big contract in 2011.
