Cornerback Eric Wright of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was arrested in Los Angeles on Saturday for a felony DUI. What that means is he was driving under the influence and was involved in an accident with an injury. Reports so far are that Wright himself was uninjured and the driver of the other vehicle was not badly injured.
Wright allegedly told police he had been drinking but refused the breathalyzer.
Wright was a Detroit Lion last season, so at least the Lions avoided yet ANOTHER arrest on their roster. Tampa Bay could possibly have a pair of felons as starting corners with Aqib Talib on the other side…after suspensions that might be doled out are served.
Brings new meaning to the phrase “the most dangerous cornerback tandem in the NFL,” doesn’t it?
