Wright, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Chargers back in 2011. He spent four years in San Diego before signing a three-year, $16 million contract with the Ravens that included $5 million guaranteed.
Wright was set to make a base salary of $4 million for the 2017 season when he was released by the Ravens shortly before the start of free agency. The Bills signed him to a contract shortly after the draft and he finished out the year in Buffalo.
The Raiders signed him to a one-year contract this offseason but made him among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
In 2017, Wright appeared in 12 games for the Bills and recorded 44 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 82 cornerback out of 120 qualifying players.
