Eric Wright Agrees To Deal With Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have in fact agreed to terms on a deal with free agent cornerback Eric Wright.

Wright has been in the NFL since 2007 and spent the first four years of his career in Cleveland. With the Browns, he played in all but five games over the past four seasons. He had a total of 249 tackles during that time and also had one sack, 47 pass defenses, nine interceptions (one for a touchdown) and two forced fumbles.

One of Wright's interceptions actually came against Matthew Stafford and the Lions back in 2009. He almost returned it for a touchdown, and in last year's preseason he actually did score a touchdown on a fumble return against Detroit. Wright tweeted links to both of these videos tonight and said it's time to flip the script now that he is a Lion.

While this is not a big-name signing like many were hoping for, it's not a bad move. Wright is a starting-caliber cornerback, and although he has had his struggles, playing with the Lions' great defensive line should certainly help in the future.
