Lions re-sign Tim Wright


After getting traded out of Tampa Bay two years in a row, tight end Tim Wright is hoping to find some stability in Detroit.

Wright has re-signed with the Lions, the team he played for last year.

The 25-year-old Wright has shown promise at times in his career, although he hasn’t been able to find a permanent home. In 2013 with the Bucs, Wright led all rookie tight ends with 571 receiving yards. But in 2014 he was traded to the Patriots for Logan Mankins. In New England he didn’t get as much playing time, and when the Patriots waived him, the Buccaneers traded him. The Bucs then traded Wright again before the 2015 season, this time to the Lions.

In Detroit last year Wright only caught nine passes, but now he’s back with a full year of experience in the offense under his belt, and he’ll hope to play a bigger role in Detroit’s offense in 2016.
