Draft Scout Timothy Wright News
10/05/14 - TE Tim Wright, acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the deal that sent G Logan Mankins away just before the season, caught five passes for 85 yards and his first Patriots touchdown.
08/29/14 - TE Tim Wright made his New England debut in New York just two days after joining the Patriots via trade from the Bucs. Wright saw plenty of reps, catching four passes for 43 yards and showing solid athleticism.
08/26/14 - TE Tim Wright, acquired by the Patriots from Tampa Bay in the trade for G Logan Mankins adds much-needed depth to the Patriots' tight-end depth chart. Rob Gronkowski is cautiously working back from a torn ACL suffered last December, while Michael Hoomanawanui has been dealing with his own knee injury this summer.
The 6-4, 220-pound Wright caught 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns as an undrafted rookie last year out of Rutgers.
New England safety Duron Harmon played with Wright for the Scarlet Knights and thinks the tight end will certainly bring something to the table for the Patriots offense.
"He's a good tight end that's not your traditional tight end," Harmon said. "He does good things in and out of his breaks, catches the ball well. Just a change-up tight end that did well for himself last year."
Cornerback Darrelle Revis spent last season in Tampa with Wright and was also impressed with what he saw from the young pass-catcher.
"We're getting an exciting player who can catch, who can run great routes," Revis said. "He has a lot of speed at the tight-end position. He makes plays. I think he'll fit in well."
12/23/13 - TE Tim Wright has 49 receptions, the fifth-most by a tight end in franchise history.
12/18/13 - TE Tim Wright has 45 receptions, tied for the most of any rookie tight end this season. He has four touchdowns, which ranks second among rookie tight ends.
