RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Wright finished third on the Bears' in tackles last season, and will once again be the starting strong safety in the Bears' potent secondary.

2012

Health and consistency issues continue to keep Wright off the field, but he still enters the season as the starter. As a hold-over from Jerry Angelo's tenure, this could end up a make-or-break year for the third year player as rookie Brandon Hardin waits in the wings.

2011

With the departure of Danieal Manning, Wright will step into the starting free safety position. Which should allow him to showcase his play-making abilities if he can remain healthy, something he couldn't do in 2010.

2010

Wright, the 75th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, will fight for a starting safety spot during training camp.
