The Baltimore Ravens announced that they’ve re-signed CB Shareece Wright on Monday.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Wright receives a three-year contract worth up to $16 million and $5 million guaranteed. Wright also gets a $4 million signing bonus.
Wright tells Josina Anderson of his new contract:
“It’s definitely something that I really wanted. I think I had a few games that really helped out like holding Antonio Brown under control when I was on him at home. That was part of a great defensive effort from our unit collectively. Also, the Cleveland game where I was targeted 12 times and I only gave up 2 catches. I think games like that showed a lot and I am happy that the Ravens continue to believe in me.”
- Zrebiec adds that a deal isn’t 100 percent complete, but Wright will be in Baltimore early this week to take physical and sign off on the deal.
Wright, 28, signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the 49ers back in March of last year, but was released in October after a disappointing season with the team. The Ravens later signed him to a contract for some much needed help at cornerback.
Wright would be an unrestricted free agent in the coming days if they’re unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal.
In 2015, Wright appeared in 11 games and recorded 40 tackles and five pass defenses for the Chargers.
