Jets signed DE Rodrique Wright, formerly of the Dolphins.
Wright was out of football in 2009 after failing to make the Dolphins' roster. At 6'5/300, Wright has enough size to play defensive end in the Jets' 3-4, but the once highly regarded Texas Longhorn has never met expectations. Tue, Mar 16, 2010 10:25:00 AM

Miami placed DL Rodrique Wright on reserve/PUP, ending his season.

Wright (torn rotator cuff) played end in his brief return to practice the last two weeks. With Fred Evans, Kevin Vickerson, and maybe Manny Wright around behind Keith Traylor and Vonnie Holliday, Rodrique may have a hard time making next year's club if he doesn't pick up the new position.

Dolphins seventh-round rookie Rodrique Wright (shoulder) has returned to practice and is being converted to defensive end.

Wright, a star interior tackle while at Texas, is currently on the reserve/non-football injury list after undergoing rotator cuff surgery. He's shed close to 20 pounds to play his new position, and now weighs 297. Wright still seems unlikely to play in his first year.

Dolphins seventh-round DT Rodrique Wright will likely be placed on the PUP list.

We all found out why Wright, a stud at Texas, fell so far in the draft; he had a torn rotator cuff. He had surgery in May and could miss the season.

DT Rodrique Wright will undergo surgery for a torn rotator cuff.

It could happen as soon as Saturday. Though it will likely cost him the 2006 season, it appears shoulder surgery would benefit him the most in the long haul.

Dolphins DT Rodrique Wright, who surprisingly slipped to the seventh round, has a torn rotator cuff.

This explains a lot. The Dolphins will give the former Texas player an MRI this week, but he'll probably miss the 2007 season if he undergoes surgery. Wright was considered a second or third round pick before the injury was known.
