Major Wright: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Wright really broke through with the Bears last season, finishing second on the team with 100 tackles (78 solo) while also recording two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a defensive score. Wright will rejoin Lovie Smith -- who coached him in Chicago from 2010-12 -- in Tampa, and should open next year as the starter at strong safety.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Wright finished third on the Bears' in tackles last season, and will once again be the starting strong safety in the Bears' potent secondary.
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.
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.
Wright, the 75th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, will fight for a starting safety spot during training camp.
