- Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported that the Buccaneers are expected to sign Wright to a contract.
- Stroud mentions that an agreement between the two parties is not finalized as of now.
- However, Wright will likely sign a deal at some point, according to Stroud.
Last we heard, Wright had left his visit with the Buccaneers without a contract, but
Wright, 25, was taken in third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Bears and has spent the first four years of his career in Chicago.
Last year, he appeared in 15 games for the Bears and totaled 101 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a defensive touchdown.
However, he was a liability in coverage and even struggled to be an effective run-defender for the Bears. Pro Football Focus rated him as the worst qualifying safety in the league last year.
Former Bears S Major Wright announced via his Twitter account that he’s headed to Tampa Bay for a visit with the Buccaneers.
Blessed and grateful to finally get this journey started. It’s going to be great to see familiar old faces in Tampa.

Ian Rapoport confirms that he is visiting with the Bucs and adds that Tampa Bay is expected to try to sign him to a contract before he leaves.
