Eric Wright, a cornerback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was arrested earlier this morning on suspicion of felony DUI after an injury accident near the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Wright was a former USC player who transferred to UNLV after off the field problems at the University, including a rape allegation.
Well, at least you can’t blame the Detroit Lions about the latest DUI arrest for a NFL player. What’s that, Eric Wright played for Detroit last year before signing with Tampa? See, it’s just like Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon. All arrests this offseason eventually lead back to Detroit.
I’m now bitter about Wright sullying the name of Eric Wright in the NFL. He can’t hold the jock of former 49ers and Missouri cornerback Eric Wright from the 1980’s.
