Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright found himself stranded at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Monday night. Instead of crowd-sourcing a ride via Twitter like House did, Wright just grabbed an Uber instead.
According to Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, Wright hopped in an Uber for the 550-mile journey from O’Hare to Bills headquarters in Orchard Park, N.Y. Wright’s agent – Tamerat Berhe – said the total cost of the trip came out to $932.08 ($632.08 for the fare, $300 for a tip).
While OTAs are voluntary practices, Wright is in his first season with the Bills after signing with the team in May. With new teammates and a new defense to absorb, it’s more important for Wright to be taking part in practices and getting a jump-start on adjusting to the new surroundings.
