Lions waived/injured TE Tim Wright.

Wright tore his ACL and will miss the entire 2016 season. He should pass through waivers unclaimed and revert to injured reserve. Wright, 26, caught just nine passes in nine games in 2015. He's a drop in deep Dynasty leagues.
Thu, May 26, 2016 04:53:00 PM

Lions re-signed TE Tim Wright.

Detroit decided against tendering Wright as a restricted free agent, suggesting this deal is worth something close to league minimum. Wright caught nine passes for 77 yards and two scores in nine games with Detroit last season. He will compete for a role in camp.

Lions did not tender restricted free agent TE Tim Wright an offer, making him a free agent.

Wright hasn't done much of anything since his breakout rookie season with the Bucs. He'll look for a job and compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Tim Wright caught 3-of-6 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown Week 6 against the Bears.

Wright got the work because Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron were inactive. Matthew Stafford escaped pressure and threw Wright open at the back of the end zone for a touchdown in the first half. It was Wright's only target of the first frame, and he did not see any work until the team went into catch-up mode in the fourth quarter. Wright would be a touchdown-or-bust TE2 next week against the Vikings if Pettigrew and Ebron are again forced to sit.

Tim Wright caught 1-of-2 targets for 26 yards in the Lions' Week 4 loss to the Seahawks.

With Eric Ebron (knee) going down early in the second quarter, Wright was the only healthy tight end on the roster. His 26-yard grab down the seam in the fourth quarter set the Lions up in the red zone. With Ebron likely looking at a week-to-week injury, Wright could be in line for an increased offensive role for Detroit.

Lions acquired TE Tim Wright from the Buccaneers in exchange for K Kyle Brindza.

Wright's odyssey continues. After a breakout rookie campaign in Tampa Bay, Wright was acquired by the Patriots in a similarly timed trade last offseason. He struggled to make a consistent impact in New England and was waived in June. The Bucs claimed Wright off waivers but have now traded him for the second time in as many years. In Detroit, Wright will compete with Joseph Fauria for snaps behind Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew.

ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas said TE Tim Wright will struggle to make the final roster.

Wright always faced an uphill battle with Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker ahead of him on the depth chart, but he has not helped himself by struggling to make plays in camp. Wright will find plenty of takers if he ends up getting cut, but his breakout rookie campaign is feeling like a distant memory.

A source tells ESPN that 10 teams put in a waiver claim for Tim Wright.

It's a reminder that Wright, who posted a 54-571-5 line as a rookie, can play. The Bucs were awarded Wright thanks to the No. 1 priority, but the Jets, Bears, Falcons, Browns, Saints, Dolphins, Chiefs, Steelers and Lions all submitted claims. Back with Tampa, Wright will compete for the right to complement Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers in a "move" role. He'll be a restricted free agent after this season.

Buccaneers claimed TE Tim Wright off waivers from the Patriots.

Wright returns to Tampa Bay, where he began his career as an undrafted rookie out of Rutgers. It's not a favorable landing spot for Wright's fantasy outlook. He'll compete with Brandon Myers for snaps behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Wright might have been intriguing had he landed somewhere like Atlanta.

Patriots waived TE Tim Wright.

A wide receiver at Rutgers, Wright flashed NFL-caliber "move" tight end ability when he posted 54-571-5 for the Bucs as a UDFA rookie in 2013. The Patriots gave up stud guard Logan Mankins to acquire Wright a year ago, but he was an innocent bystander late in the year (10 snaps in three playoff games). Scott Chandler will move forward as Rob Gronkowski's backup, with rookie AJ Derby, Fred Davis and blocker Michael Hoomanawanui also in the mix. Wright, who is subject to waivers, should garner interest as a cheap pass-catching tight end. He's scored 11 touchdowns across the last two seasons.
Thu, Jun 11, 2015 09:55:00 AM

Patriots TE Tim Wright was not targeted in Super Bowl XLIX.

We saw Wright enter on a third-down play in the second quarter, but otherwise he wasn't heard from. The Patriots acquired Wright in last summer's Logan Mankins trade with Tampa Bay, and he finished the regular season with a 25-269-6 receiving line, handling a highly inconsistent and matchup-specific role. Wright turns 25 this April. We would not be surprised to see his usage grow as a "move" tight end behind Rob Gronkowski in 2015.

Tim Wright played on three snaps in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

Even with the Patriots taking a spread, pass-only approach against the Ravens' rugged run defense, Wright was a non-factor. He's essentially lost his role to a hot Danny Amendola. Giving up Logan Mankins for Wright in the preseason remains a head-scratcher.

Tim Wright wasn't targeted in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

We are now nearly two months removed from our most recent "Wright game." He's just as likely to go target-less in the AFC Championship Game as he is to score a touchdown.
Sat, Jan 10, 2015 09:06:00 PM

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss suggests Tim Wright could have a bigger role than usual in Saturday's Divisional game against the Ravens.

The Ravens rank fourth in the NFL against the run and haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in 27 games. So logic follows that this will be more of a spread, pass-based gameplan from the Patriots. Wright would still make for a very risky play in DFS formats, as predicting his usage has been a shaky endeavor all year long. He has one or zero catches in 12-of-16 games this season.
