01:43 PM ET 03.23 | Pro Football Talk is citing a league source Saturday that claims the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking for trade partners for cornerback Eric Wright. Wright, who was suspended for four games of the 2012 season for a violation of the league's policy against performance-enhancing substances, forfeited the $7.75 million guarantee he had in his contract for 2013. Tampa Bay was 6-4 and had won four consecutive games before Wright missed their Week 12 game against Atlanta. They lost, and Wright was suspended for the next four games. He was activated for the team's Week 17 game, but did not play in it. The Buccaneers finished 7-9, missing the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season. Wright admitted to using Adderall, the same banned substance former Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib allegedly tested positive for in 2012. Talib was traded to New England after he served his suspension.
