College career[edit]

Wright accepted an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida,[2] where he played for coach Urban Meyer's Florida Gators football team from 2007 to 2009.[4] As a freshman in 2007, Wright started seven of 13 games for the Gators at free safety, recording 67 tackles, four forced fumbles and an interception.[2] He was a first-team freshman All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com and second-team freshman All-American by Rivals.com.[4] As a sophomore in 2008, Wright started all 14 games at free safety, recording 66 tackles and four interceptions, with one returned for a touchdown.[2] He had nine tackles and an interception in the Gators win over the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2009 BCS National Championship Game.[2]

After his junior season, Wright decided to forgo his senior year and enter the NFL Draft.[5]

Professional career[edit]

Chicago Bears[edit]

The Chicago Bears selected Wright in the third round (75th overall pick) of the 2010 NFL Draft,[6] and was predicted to be a future starter by former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo.[7] During his rookie season, Wright played in eleven of sixteen regular season games. He recorded his first career interception in 2011 off a Michael Vick pass against the Philadelphia Eagles, when a pass by Vick squirted through linebacker Lance Briggs's hands into Wright, who was able to return the ball 39 yards.[8] A week later against the Detroit Lions, Wright intercepted a Matthew Stafford lob and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown, which was the first pick-six of his career.[9]

In the 2012 season Wright started all 16 games for the Bears at Strong Safety, recording four interceptions along with 52 tackles for the year. During the Week 3 match up against the St. Louis Rams he returned an interception 45 yards for a defensive touchdown.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

On April 4, 2014, Wright agreed to a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, reuniting with his former Bears head coach Lovie Smith.[10] Wright was cut by the Buccaneers on August 30, 2014. Wright rejoined the team on September 3, 2014.

Wright re-signed with the Buccaneers on March 7, 2015.[11] On December 30, 2015, Wright was placed on injured reserve.[12]

On August 28, 2016, Wright was waived by the Buccaneers.[13] He was re-signed by the Buccaneers on November 29, 2016.[14] He was released again on December 13, 2016.[15]
