Buccaneers finish up cuts, let Major Wright go

Safety Major Wright was supposed to be one of the guys to help spread Lovie Smith’s message in Tampa Bay, but he won’t be doing that now.

The veteran safety was one of the final eight roster cuts made by the Buccaneers, as they reached the 53-man roster limit.

Wright was signed in April after spending three years with the Bears, three as a starter. His last year under Smith in Chicago was his best, with four interceptions.

But with Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson starting, they elected to go with some younger players to back up and play special teams.

The Buccaneers also released tight end Cameron Brate, running back Jeff Demps, quarterback Mike Kafka, linebacker Brandon Magee, defensive tackle Matthew Masifilo, wide receiver Solomon Patton and defensive tackle Ronald Talley.

    Cut Jeff Demps? But he’s so fast and occasionally committed to football…

    No surprise to Bears fans. Major Wright does not belong in the NFL.

    Kafka is better than Glennon or McCown. Free Dan Persa!

    Now he can go to Minnesota. A Major and a Captain on the same team NEEDS to happen.

    Bring this guy out of retirement…..
    Vince Young,… He can still play at a HIGH level,…. His NFL won/loss record right now is 31-19 as a starting quarterback… He has playoff experience … He’s a 2 time Pro-Bowler… He was voted 2006 NFL Rookie of the Year…..
    The NFL is all about “WINS and LOSSES”…. and Vince can WIN…………
    Bring in Vince Young “NOW”… Evaluate him, if he’s good enough sign him… You will have to guarantee his contract….

    Lol @ VY fan boy up there. If he was good enough don’t you think he would’ve stuck on 1 of the 20 teams he’s been on?

    Staying too long with Major Wright would be a major wrong.

    So what you’re saying then is that he would fit right in with Chicago’s D. If anyone knows who doesn’t belong in the NFL it would be Bears fans.

    Major Wright could step in and start today for the KC Chiefs over Abdullah, and be a massive upgrade.
