Wright is already a step behind because his track record isn’t that great to begin with starting back in college.  He was a promising starter with USC before his first brush with the law.

During his sophomore year, Wright was charged with suspicion of rape and the police also found a a reported 136 Ecstasy tablets in his apartment.  The case was dismissed after Los Angeles County prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence.

He then transferred to UNLV where he played for one year then decided to declare early for the draft.  Wright was thought to be a first round pick but slipped to the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft because of his off the field issues.

Wright played in Cleveland until 2011 where he signed with the Lions and was a fixture in the secondary recording four interceptions, 74 tackles and started in all 16 games.

Schiano will look to protect the expensive investment that he has taken a chance on and you can rest assured that Wright will have little time for much else.  There is also the possibility of disciplinary action from the NFL.

    It’s Matt Ryan in the NFC South, not Matt Flynn. Also, it isn’t ironic that his former teammate was arrested. Thats a coincidence. I’m really wondering what type of punishment Wright gets from Schiano. Schiano seems like such a disciplinarian that it seems unlikely that he will let this go without using him as an example.
