Green Bay Packers safety Davon House wasn’t the only NFL player utilizing alternative transportation methods to get to practice Monday night.

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.

    Nice of him to tip like that

    $300 for a tip? He obviously needs to talk to McCoy about money management. A 550 mile trip should receive a gratuity of no more than $7.67

    Dedication…

    I guess Shareece is more willing to take full responsibility for getting to OTA’s on time than Davon.

    And Shareece is a rookie – not a veteran player with a workout bonus.

    Kudos to Shareece for doing the right thing.

    You know what, I have to hand it to him. A lot of players would go, “look, it’s voluntary, I will call ahead and tell them that I’ll be in on the next available flight and they would understand”.

    I can admire the drive to get things done.

    Sorry. Wright is a 6 year veteran.

    That comes out to $316.00 a day and $75,840.00 a year. And your point is…
