Another Bucs cornerback may be riding the pine.

Wright misses the tackle here and may miss them for 4 more games.

Well, as if Aqib Talib getting suspended for four games for Adderall wasn't bad enough, it may get worse. According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, Eric Wright, one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' big free agency acquisitions may also be facing a four game sit down for taking the same banned substance. If this is true, the Bucs are in deep you know what.

I should stress that this is not official yet and he could appeal in an attempt to delay the suspension or prove his innocence. Wright has been adequate at best in my opinion thus far, but this is inexcusable. Coach Schiano has to be fuming at his no tolerance stance being essentially ignored. Apparently being a Buccaneer man means taking banned substances.

Should we call Tanard Jackson? He may fit right in with this bunch.

We'll wait to see what happens on this, but be sure to sound off in the Comment section.
