Free agent safety Major Wright to visit Tampa Bay

Major Wright

Former Chicago Bears Safety Major Wright announced on Twitter that his first free agent visit will be with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Wright, 25, was taken by Chicago in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He’s coming off a 2013 season where he intercepted two passes, one of which was returned for a touchdown. Wright had 79 solo tackles and two forced fumbles.

If Wright and the Buccaneers can agree on a deal, Wright would join Dashon Goldson and Mark Barron in Tampa Bay’s defensive backfield. The team also has Jonathan Banks and Mike Jenkins at cornerback, among others.

Wright’s former head coach in Chicago, Lovie Smith is now the head coach in Tampa Bay. Smith has already called on his  Chicago roots in signing former Bears quarterback Josh McCown. It seems possible Smith’s Chicago connection could sway Major Wright to Tampa Bay, as well.
