The Lions appear to have reached agreement with Eric Wright, formerly of the Browns. Wright is now sporting a Lions hat on Twitter and got a congrats from former Lion Gerald Alexander. NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora confirmed Wright is going to Detroit.
We almost forgot Wright was a free agent, but this is a worthwhile gamble.
A year ago at this time, we heard Shawn Springs list Wright as one of the best five cornerbacks in the league. That’s a stretch, but the kid has plenty of talent and had a stretch of excellent play in Cleveland. He’s young and we assume he is coming at a discount price.
