It didn’t take long for defensive tackle Gabe Wright to find a new home. Wright was waived by the Dolphins yesterday, and was claimed off waivers today by the Raiders, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (Twitter link).
The 2015 fourth-rounder was cut by the Dolphins just hours after an incident at practice where he took a cheap-shot at running back Kenyan Drake. He wasn’t guaranteed a roster spot even before the fight, and the Dolphins wasted no time in sending him packing.
Despite the Lions using a relatively high selection on him in 2015, he lasted just one season in Detroit. He’s bounced around since then, spending time with Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Miami.
Through three seasons, Wright has made 13 career appearances. He’s notched 11 tackles and two passes defended in those appearances. The Raiders will be his fifth team in just four seasons, and he’ll be battling it out for an end-of-the roster spot on Jon Gruden’s squad.
