At least he won’t count against the Detroit Lions’ checkered offseason but Eric Wright played for them last season.
Wright, the veteran cornerback who signed a $37 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency, was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of felony driving under the influence, according to the Los Angeles Times.
It is considered a potential felony because Wright was involved in an injury accident after he had a wreck in his Mercedes SLS sports coup with a Chevy Silverado truck. Per the report, Wright told police he had been drinking earlier at a friend’s residence in Hollywood and Wright refused a Breathalyzer or a field sobriety test.
Wright, who played at USC before transferring to UNLV, was booked by police.
