Whether or not the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are able to swing a deal with the New York Jets for Darrelle Revis, they are willing to subtract at the cornerback position first even though they had a glaring need there before losing E.J. Biggers (their only worthwhile corner) to the Washington Redskins earlier this week. However, this could be a case of addition by subtraction if the Bucs do indeed trade struggling cornerback Eric Wright, who carries baggage with him as well.

Wright was a disastrous signing for the Buccaneers last offseason, because they spent far too much money for a player who has chronically underachieved and put together one of the worst contract years in 2011 while with the Detroit Lions.

According to sources close to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are wisely trying to trade Eric Wright, even though their efforts will almost certainly be for naught. Wright did lose his grievance for the 2013 season after being suspended for four games, so his gigantic (why the heck did they think that deal would work out?) $7.75 million salary will not be guaranteed.
