- Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported that the Buccaneers are expected to sign Wright to a contract.
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.
