Major Wright visiting Buccaneers

April, 2, 2014
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be adding some depth to their defensive backfield with a player who has strong ties to coach Lovie Smith.

Safety Major Wright arrived in Tampa on Tuesday night and will visit with the Bucs on Wednesday. Wright previously played for Smith in Chicago. But the interest in Wright is somewhat surprising because the Bucs appear to be in good shape at safety.

They have Mark Barron at strong safety and Dashon Goldson at free safety. Although Wright was a starter during most of his time in Chicago, the Bucs could be looking to use him in sub packages and on special teams.
