Wright was waived by the Bengals on Monday but did not fall past his old coach Hue Jackson and the Bengals. Wright compiled 106 yards on 13 receptions for the Bengals in 2016 across 13 games. He also tallied 11 tackles in his special teams' role. Wright will join a group of young receivers in Cleveland and will have an opportunity to prove himself in training camp. The team let Terrelle Pryor walk in free agency, so outside of Corey Coleman, there is room on the depth chart to earn some playing time.
Wright was waived by the Bengals on Monday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Wright caught 18 passes in 24 games played for the Bengals since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2014. Also capable of contributing on special teams, Wright will now look to land elsewhere this offseason.
Wright (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Wright's availability was foreshadowed by the fact the he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. With A.J. Green still out, Wright figures to remain involved Sunday, after having logged seven catches for 65 yards over his last three games. Wright still remains behind Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd and TE Tyler Eifert in the Bengals' pass-catching pecking order, however.
Wright (knee) is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Steelers.
Wright is likely on the probable side of questionable after he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. If for some reason he is held out, look for Cody Core and Alex Erickson to see a few extra reps.
Wright (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday.
Wright was unable to play in last week's game against the Browns and was held out of Wednesday's practice. His full participation suggests he's now healthy and he should be expected to play in Sunday's matchup with the Steelers.
