Rookie Wright making quick splash at tight end



Friday's Times has a feature on Bucs rookie tight end Tim Wright, who has emerged as a favorite target for fellow rookie Mike Glennon with 12 receptions in the last two games. It's a promising debut for a former receiver who didn't catch a pass at Rutgers until his fourth year on campus. Sixteen tight ends were drafted in April, but only three have more yards than Wright has as an undrafted Bucs rookie. ... Didn't make it in the story, but he also specialized as the team barber at Rutgers and has carried on that tradition with a few of his fellow rookies.
