The Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquired Logan Mankins from the New England Patriots the other day but as a result they had to give up promising tight end Tim Wright.
Wright’s time in Tampa Bay wasn’t lengthy by any means but he was starting to show a lot of promise at becoming a next-gen style receiving threat for the Bucs — something they’ve been lacking.
Luke Stocker was a bust, but the arrival of Austin Seferian-Jenkins this year via the draft has given Tampa Bay the threat they need. Wright is a class act though, and went as far as to return to the Buccaneers facility after the trade — when he didn’t have to — in order to thank the entire staff for his time with the team.
Thought it was cool that Tim Wright went back into the Bucs building and thanked their whole staff after the trade. A nice touch.

Wright’s time with the Buccaneers wasn’t long but he’s clearly a talent that the Patriots coveted which says a lot about him. What says even more is that he thanked the entire staff after his trade when he didn’t have to, which also says a lot about the impact Lovie Smith and his crew have had in their short time in Tampa Bay.
