The Buccaneers reached a reunion agreement with Major Wright late last month as an insurance measure. The temporary arrangement appears to have concluded.
Wright, who started in nine games for the Bucs from 2014-15, played in Tampa Bay’s two most recent contests bud did not record any statistics. Conte has been out since Week 12 with a chest injury but has started in 24 games since signing with the Bucs in 2015. Conte has two interceptions and 73 tackles this season, his sixth in the league. Cut by the Bucs out of training camp, Wright did not see any other 2016 action before re-signing with the team in November.
The Bucs started Keith Tandy in place of Conte, with Wright active as a backup. Tandy intercepted a pass, one of three Bucs to do so, and made eight tackles in relief of Conte.
Tampa Bay held NFL passing leader Drew Brees without a touchdown pass in a 16-11 win and remains in a first-place tie with the Falcons in the NFC South.
