Date:

Bucs signed S Major Wright to a one-year contract.

You can go home again. On the street since getting released at the 75-man cutdown in training camp, Wright will provide depth for the stretch run.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 02:59:00 PM

Free agent S Major Wright is working out for the Panthers.

The Panthers haven't seem satisfied with their safety depth, also working out Donte Whitner and Stevie Brown in recent days. Wright was released by the Bucs on Sunday.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 01:58:00 PM

Bucs released/waived S Major Wright, DT Travis Britz, CB Daniel Davie, WR Andre Davis, OT Taylor Fallin, LB Jeremiah George, DE Martin Ifedi, RB Storm Johnson, DT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, S Kimario McFadden, P Jacob Schum and TE Tevin Westbrook.

A favorite of former coach Lovie Smith, Wright was re-upped with an incentive-laden contract in March, but ended up not even making it to final cuts. Still only 28, it's possible Wright is brought back later at a cheaper price. Schum's removal means Bryan Anger of Russell Wilson fame has won punting duties.
Sun, Aug 28, 2016 01:38:00 PM

Bucs re-signed S Major Wright to a two-year contract worth up to $4.5M.

Wright appeared in 12 games (seven starts) for the Bucs prior to being placed on I.R. last season. He'll return as veteran depth behind emerging SS Bradley McDougald.
Sat, Mar 7, 2015 05:40:00 PM

Bucs placed S Major Wright (ribs) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Wright finishes 2014 with 51 tackles over 12 games (seven starts). Bradley McDougald will continue to replace him at strong safety. The Bucs promoted CB C.J. Wilson in a corresponding move.

Bucs re-signed S Major Wright.

Wright was just waived on Saturday. The Lovie Smith favorite passes through waivers unclaimed and is now back in Tampa to provide depth behind Dashon Goldson and Mark Barron.
Wed, Sep 3, 2014 09:15:00 AM

Bucs waived S Major Wright.

Wright signed for the veteran minimum to reunite with Lovie Smith this offseason, but couldn't beat out Bradley McDougald for the backup strong safety job. He missed the Bucs' final two preseason games with a back injury. 26-year-old Wright will attract interest on waivers if healthy.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 02:10:00 PM

Bucs agreed to terms with S Major Wright on a one-year contract.

Wright is coming off a miserable season in Chicago, but showed ballhawking and playmaking ability in his three years prior under Lovie Smith, compiling seven interceptions across 2011-2012. He has a pick-six in three straight years. Turning 26 in July, Wright still offers developmental upside. Look for him to at very worst be a third safety behind Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson.
Fri, Apr 4, 2014 04:48:00 PM

The Tampa Bay Times reports the Bucs are "likely" to sign free agent SS Major Wright.

The transaction is expected by the end of today. Wright is still only 25 years old and spent the early portion of his career playing for Lovie Smith in Chicago. He could challenge disappointing $41 million FS Dashon Goldson for snaps.
Fri, Apr 4, 2014 04:42:00 PM

Free agent S Major Wright is visiting the Bucs.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Bucs hope to hammer out a deal. Wright is coming off a rough season for the Bears, but would be reuniting with former coach Lovie Smith in Tampa. Wright was better under Smith in 2010-12.
Tue, Apr 1, 2014 06:05:00 PM

The Bears are not expected to re-sign free agent SS Major Wright.

Wright showed playmaking ability during his first three NFL seasons, but his coverage and tackling fell off a surprising cliff in 2013. Still only 25, Wright would be smart to pursue one-year deals to rehab his market value for 2015.
Fri, Feb 28, 2014 04:43:00 PM

ESPN Chicago considers the Bears' need to upgrade the safety position to be "urgent."

SS Major Wright is an impending free agent, while FS Chris Conte has one year left on his rookie deal. Both were bottom-five safeties in Pro Football Focus' end-of-season ratings, with Wright finishing dead last. Due to the Bears' pitiful front-seven this past season, Wright and Conte were asked to make too many stops. Both missed their fair share of tackles. Chicago doesn't have anybody waiting in the wings at the position ready to take over as a starter.
Fri, Jan 31, 2014 09:47:00 AM

Bears SS Major Wright (hamstring) returned to a full practice Friday.

Barring setbacks, Wright should be in the starting lineup on Monday night against Dallas after missing Week 13. Wright has been an IDP dynamo when healthy this season, averaging 6.9 tackles per game with two forced fumbles and two interceptions. 57 of Wright's 76 tackles have been of the solo variety.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 11:18:00 PM

Bears SS Major Wright suffered a hamstring injury in Friday's practice and is questionable for Week 13.

The Bears went so far as to promote SS Sean Cattouse from the practice squad, indicating concern over Wright's Week 13 availability. Wright has been an IDP stud this year with 76 tackles and four turnovers forced.
