Wright began his NFL career with the Bucs, only to be traded to the Patriots before the 2014 season. With Wright making the switch from New England to Tampa Bay, each team has 4 Rutgers players on their respective rosters. The Bengals are not far behind with the trio of Mohamed Sanu, Clark Harris, and Tyler Kroft. Interestingly enough, Tim Wright is the third former Scarlet Knight to join the Buccaneers this offseason along with Khaseem Greene and George Johnson. Johnson and Wright were both previously on the Bucs during Greg Schiano's short stint and are now returning for their second tenures with Tampa Bay. Although the Piscataway-Tampa pipeline seemed to be done when Schiano was fired, Lovie Smith looks like he is re-establishing it. Stick with On The Banks for all updates on your Knights in the NFL!
