BUCCANEERS TRADE TE TIM WRIGHT TO DETROIT IN EXCHANGE FOR KICKER KYLE BRINDZA

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have traded tight end Tim Wright to the Detroit Lions in exchange for kicker Kyle Brindza (pronounced BRIND-zuh).
                                                                                                                                       
Brindza (6-0, 239) is a rookie out of Notre Dame, who entered the NFL with Detroit this offseason. During the preseason, Brindza has made all three of his field goal attempts.
 
A native of Canton, Michigan, Brindza finished his collegiate career as Notre Dame’s career leader in field goals made (57) and ranked third on the school’s all-time scoring list with 288 points, second among kickers. Brindza will wear No. 2 for Tampa Bay.
 
Wright, who originally entered the NFL in 2013 as a college free agent with Tampa Bay, re-joined the team this offseason after being waived by New England.
