Wright Grabs One of the Starting CB Jobs


Eric Wright has won one of the starting corner back jobs for the Browns, and will take the field with the first team when they battle the Chiefs Saturday night at Browns Stadium.  Wright, the teams second-round pick, has been playing well since he first stepped on the field in rookie mini-camp, and if he can stay out of trouble (he had some issues in college), the Browns may have gotten a steal with grabbing him when they did.

“Eric has shown good ability,” said Browns coach Romeo Crennel. “He’s made some plays, but he’s also given up some balls. That’s what rookies do.”  Eric Wright has also taken advantage of the groin injury of Kenny Wright, who has been unable to go 100 percent.  Eric Wright made 10 starts at Southern Cal and UNLV, but will get picked on right away by most QB’s once they realize he’s on the field.

So far, Wright has yet to intercept a pass in camp, but says that is not a concern.  “I’m not really worried about it,” he said. “When the opportunities come within the defensive scheme, that’s when I’ll make my plays. As long as I show that I’m accountable, everybody will feel comfortable with me being out there.”  He will have plenty of chances when QB’s start throwing his way once he’s on the field with the number one team.
