Cornerback Eric Wright has received a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy against performance-enhancing drugs.
Head coach Greg Schiano made the announcement during his press conference Monday, heard live on 620 WDAE.
In a statement, Wright apologized for his actions:
“It was announced today by the NFL that I am being suspended for four games. This is a result of taking Adderall at the end of July for health issues I was experiencing. I am extremely disappointed that the suspension was upheld at my appeal.”
“My agent and attorneys have only received the decision this afternoon, and they will be discussing it with me in the immediate future.”
“I apologize to the Glazer family, General Manager Mark Dominik, Coach Schiano and the entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization, my teammates, our great fans, and my family who have stood by me through this entire process.”
“I will continue to prepare myself and look forward to rejoining the team.”
When Coach Greg Schiano was asked about the situation the team is facing with Adderall, " This is a wide spread issue throughout the National Football Leauge right now it's certainly not Tampa exclusive."
