The Buffalo Bills announced the signing of cornerback Shareece Wright on Monday
Wright, 30, played the last two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. He was among the veteran players cut by Baltimore in March for salary-cap purposes. Despite playing in 23 games as a Raven, Wright never recorded an interception. However, he should give their secondary a much-needed veteran presence.
The Bills selected Tre'Davious White with the No. 27 overall pick Thursday and will return Ronald Darby, heading into his third season, as a starter. They lost top cornerback Stephon Gilmore to the rival New England Patriots this offseason, which necessitated a replenishing of secondary talent.
Wright has never played 16 games in his six-year NFL career and has just one career interception, so it's unclear how big of a role he'll have in Buffalo. Pro Football Focus ranked him 75th among cornerbacks in 2016. There was a stretch early in the season where he gave up five touchdowns in three games.
There is no word on the details of the contract, but it's unlikely Wright made much in the way of guarantees. If he doesn't perform well in camp, it's even possible that he winds up on the cut line by the time Buffalo makes its 53-man roster.
