Lions Free Agency 2012: Eric Wright Contract Details, According To Report

The contract details for former Lions cornerback Eric Wright's new deal with Tampa Bay are in, and according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, he'll earn $37.5 million ($15.5 million guaranteed) over the next five years with the Buccaneers.

It's yet another expensive contract handed out by the Bucs, who have also inked prized free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson and guard Carl Nicks to hefty deals, making Tampa Bay arguably the most active player in the early portion of free agency.

The departure of Wright means Detroit will have to address the secondary this offseason, but its an area they were expected to focus on with or without Wright in the fold.

Wright had 74 tackles and four interceptions for Detroit in 2011, his lone year with the Lions.
