Tim Wright: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Wright was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on Friday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wright rejoins the Buccaneers just under a year after Tampa Bay traded him to New England, who released the tight end on Thursday. In his lone season with the Patriots, Wright managed 26 catches for 259 yards and six touchdowns. That production mostly dipped from his 2013 rookie totals of 54 catches for 571 yards and five touchdowns with the Bucs, where he'll hope to earn a significant role once again, despite the presence of fellow tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers this time around.
Wright was released by the Patriots on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wright was in line to serve as one of the backups to Rob Gronkowski in his second year with the team, but the Patriots will instead cut bait with the tight end and his $585K salary. The move is a bit surprising, as Wright had just began to establish himself as a red-zone threat, catching six of his 26 receptions last season for scores.
Wright was on the field for 32 of 61 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Jets, ESPN.com reports.

2015

2014

An undrafted rookie last season, Wright converted from wide receiver to tight end and became the Bucs' starter at TE by Week 5. From that point, prorated over a full season, his numbers equal 70 receptions for 681 yards and six touchdowns. He caught 72 percent of his targets, fourth among qualified tight ends, despite playing with a rookie quarterback and the league's poorest passing attack, both of which also partially account for his few lackluster games. At 6-4, 220, with 4.65 speed, Wright is a tough receiving matchup. After being dealt to New England, Wright now provides the Patriots with a legitimate pass-catching option to combine with Rob Gronkowski, who the team still hopes will be ready for Week 1. In any case, the addition of Wright opens the door for the team to run more two-tight end sets (when Gronkowski is healthy) and in such a scenario, Wright could carve out some fantasy utility in PPR formats. Moreover, those looking to insure their investments in Gronkowski now have another option to consider for their early-season lineups.

Signed by the Buccaneers in September of 2013.
