Pat YasinskasEric Wright
will stay with Buccaneers
"[I]n the end, the Bucs decided Wright was worth keeping around at a reduced rate. There’s a reason for that. The Bucs ranked last in the league in pass defense last year and they desperately need help at cornerback. Although Wright’s play wasn’t great last year, he’s something of a proven commodity. That’s more than can be said of any other cornerback on Tampa Bay’s roster at the moment. But that could change. Even with Wright’s restructure, it still remains very possible the Bucs will attempt to work out a trade with the New York Jets for cornerback Darrelle Revis. It’s also possible the Bucs could draft a cornerback early. It also remains possible safety/cornerback Ronde Barber could decide to play another season rather than retire. In the modern NFL, you need at least three cornerbacks capable of starting. With Wright, the Bucs still only have one."
