Wright, 26, wound up going undrafted out of UCF back in 2019. He later signed a rookie contract with the Steelers but was waived coming out of training camp.

He signed a futures deal with the Lions and was eventually let go by the team before joining the Jaguars practice squad. Jacksonville eventually elevated him to the active roster last season. 

In 2021, Wright appeared in 14 games for the Jaguars and converted 21 of 24 field goals and 13 of 15 extra points.
