It seems the Tampa Bay Buccaneers players aren't happy with the Eric Wright trade. It may make some sense given the whole DUI arrest and all, but that doesn't mean the players have to like that one of their own is getting traded for peanuts.
Or, well, mostly it's Donald Penn who seems disappointed.

We have more reactions to the news, though. Both media and fans chimed in.
Seeing folks talk about Bucs' options at nickel CB. Don't forget to include former AZ Cardinals CB Michael Adams in the mix...— JennaLaineBucs (@JennaLaineBucs) July 19, 2013
Told ya, Wright was a pain in the ass off the field & that's why he's gone. Pegged for DUI again for a 2nd straight year? Wow. Not smart— Tom Krasniqi (@TKras) July 19, 2013
I might bet on Leonard Johnson winning #Bucs No. 2 CB job. Will tackle, get physical. Good traits for Revis bookend. Not impressed by Banks.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) July 19, 2013
On a football note, the trade def doesnt make tampa a better team on the field in 2013. It puts tremendous pressure on banks right away— shaun king (@realshaunking) July 19, 2013
Best explanation for the Eric Wright trade? He was never going to be a Buccaneer Man. Not deemed a positive influence for a young secondary— Ira Kaufman (@IKaufmanTBO) July 19, 2013
@Bucs_Nation Does that make sense to you? It doesn't to me!— Mark Whitby (@twitspvfc) July 19, 2013
@Bucs_Nation not shocked....— Ripperdan (@Makingmerkins) July 19, 2013
@Bucs_Nation 1 injury in the secondary or DL and we're back to the 2012 Bucs...what happened to depth?— Damian (@ajay813) July 19, 2013
