Key Facts

  • Wright won a starting job at middle linebacker as a rookie, then spent much of the rest of his Seattle tenure on the weak side, moving there after the Seahawks drafted Bobby Wagner in 2012.
  • Wright made another move to the strong side early in 2020 season and played some of the best football of his career at age 31, but he wasn't re-signed the next offseason as the Seahawks decided to go younger at inside linebacker.
  • Wright recorded 51 tackles in 17 games (eight starts) last season while playing on a one-year deal with the Raiders.
