Tampa Bay Buccaneers re-sign Major Wright

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers sliced down their roster this past weekend to 53 players but the changes are still coming and names are returning to the team that were axed as part of final cuts.

One of the final cuts made was a former Lovie Smith draft pick in Major Wright, who spent time in Chicago before following Smith to Tampa. It was short lived trip to say the least, but Wright is now back with the team and is ready to try and prove his worth.

According to Ian Rapoport from NFL Network, the Bucs will be bringing Wright back just a few days after cutting him.

The move is to fill the hole left by Charles Sims, who will be placed on injured reserve but will be eligible to return later this year. what the return of Wright means though is that there is going to be some depth at safety as the secondary is a position of need for the Buccaneers and while Wright was indeed cut before the season started, he was thought highly enough of to be brought back for the 53-man roster in the end.
