The Buccaneers still haven’t added a cornerback this offseason, but they are working on something at the position.
According to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times, cornerback Eric Wright was at Bucs offices today meeting with coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik.
The Bucs had shopped him in trade, but even though his $7.75 million contract is no longer guaranteed after last year’s suspension, there have been no apparent takers. With the market what it is for veteran corners, there wouldn’t be if he didn’t take a significant pay cut.
And if he’s going to take a pay cut, there’s a chance they’ll just keep him, and try to work with a player they made such a push to sign a year ago.
Even though the Darrelle Revis speculation isn’t going to die anytime soon, the Bucs need plenty of help in the secondary, and giving Wright a second chance at a lower number might be the right answer.
