NFL free agent news: Eric Wright on the trading block, Tom Zbikowksi signed


The Buccaneers are reportedly looking to shop Eric Wright after giving him a big deal in the 2012 offseason.

Many of the top free agent cornerbacks are off the market, but teams looking for a starter may be able to acquire Eric Wright from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as he is rumored to be on the trading block. With a free agency market that has certainly slowed, he may be an option for a team desperate at the position.

The Chicago Bears made a move on Saturday to help their secondary that didn't require a trade, as they signed former Ravens and Colts safety Tom Zbikowski to a one-year deal. The 2008 third-round pick signed with the Colts on a three-year, $5.5 million deal in 2012, but lasted just one season and 11 games before he was released prior to free agency.

A match that could make sense in free agency would be former New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora joining the Atlanta Falcons. On Friday, the pass rusher told an Atlanta radio show that he hopes to join the defensive-end-needy Falcons.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson also grabbed headlines on Saturday, although it wasn't for any free agency or trade news. The third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft was named in a civil lawsuit for his involvement in an assault that happened at his Cleveland-area home.
