Eric Wright Says He Got Death Threats From Fans

Browns cornerback Eric Wright, who received a second-round tender from the Browns on Thursday, is determined to rebound from his poor 2010 season and the sting of death threats from fans according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer.

“I went from people expecting me to be a top cornerback in the league to receiving death threats,” Wright said. “It was a lot to deal with.” Wright never reported the death threats to the Browns or police, attributing them to the extreme passion of Browns fans.

“I wasn’t fearing for my life,” he said. “As serious as a death threat may be, I wasn’t going to let a few bad apples ruin the whole tree.”

    Let me see if I have this straight: we are in two wars — neither of which we can afford; our mountain o debt will cripple any recovery for many, many years; the public education system is being defunded by chronically short-sighted “bidness” types — the same guys who ran the economy off the rails in the first place; global climate change — and people are so worked about a kids game played by men that they send death threats to a player?
