Days after the Buccaneers and CB Eric Wright worked out a one year restructured deal to keep the veteran corner in Tampa Bay, Wright posted on personal blog that he has been assured he will not be traded by the Bucs.
Wright says that he went to the Bucs wanting answers as to what his future would be with the team with the Darrelle Revis situation still on going.
"While we were restructuring, I got a chance to talk to Coach Schiano and Mark Dominik, and I frankly asked if a restructure would mean me possibly getting traded," Wright wrote on his blog. "They told me that would not happen. They told me that they wanted me. Telling me they want me to be there and they're not thinking about trading me, that meant a lot to me. They opened the door for the restructure to happen, so I obviously was ready to take the pay cut to stay and prove myself."
