NFL Suspends Bucs Eric Wright For Four Games
Wright is the second Tampa Bay starter disciplined for using Adderall. Cornerback Aqib Talib was suspended Oct. 13 for four games and subsequently traded to the New England Patriots while serving the ban.
Wright signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract with the Bucs as a free agent in March. He started the first 10 games of the season before sitting out Sunday’s loss to Atlanta because of an Achilles tendon injury.
The player issued a statement through his agent saying he took Adderall “at the end of July for health issues I was experiencing.”
Wright appealed the discipline, which was upheld by the NFL.
