Jets sign Fins DE Wright

By Marc A. Greenberg

The Jets have signed free agent Rodrique Wright, 25.

Wright (6-3, 300 lbs.), a standout at the University of Texas and drafted in the seventh round by the Dolphins in 2006, never quite made it with the Fins, battling injuries for the past few seasons.

According to his wikipedia page, Wright, who had rotator cuff surgery in College (perhaps costing him a few draft rounds), was considered a five-star recruit by, and was ranked second among defensive tackle prospects in the nation behind Haloti Ngata.
