Report: Bucs shopping Eric Wright

According to Mike Florio of, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to trade cornerback Eric Wright just after signing him as a free agent last offseason.

Per a league source, the Buccaneers are shopping cornerback Eric Wright.

Wright’s contract pays him a $7.75 million base salary for 2013, an amount that no longer is guaranteed due to his four-game suspension in 2012.

The contract Wright signed last year in free agency after leaving the Lions covers four more seasons, with base salaries of $7.25 million in 2014, $7.25 million in 2015, and $7.5 million in 2016.

The only way the Bucs will be able to trade Wright is if he agrees to take a pay cut and reduce his 2013 salary.  This might make it very difficult for them to move him.
