Retained by Detroit

The Lions matched the three-year, $12 million offer sheet extended to Wright by the 49ers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Wright signed an offer sheet that reportedly included $6 million guaranteed as a restricted free agent with San Francisco, but Detroit has opted to match it and retain the tight end, who plays a key role as a blocker in the run game. The 49ers will now have to look elsewhere for an additional backup to George Kittle, while Wright gets an improved contract and the opportunity to remain in a scheme he's already succeeded in. Across 14 regular-season appearances in 2023, Wright piled up 13 receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown.

Could back up Kittle

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-29

The offer sheet Wright signed with the 49ers as a restricted free agent Friday is reportedly for three years and $12 million, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Per Birkett, the Lions have five days to match the offer and since Wright was an undrafted free agent, they wouldn't receive draft pick compensation if he departs. If the 25-year-old ends up with the 49ers, he'd be in line to help fill the blocking tight end void behind starter George Kittle created by the free-agent departure of Charlie Woerner.

Signs offer sheet with San Fran

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-29

Wright (forearm) signed an offer sheet with the 49ers on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Lions extended a one-year, $2.98 million contract tender to Wright ahead of free agency and now have five days to match the 49ers' offer. If not, Wright's deal with San Francisco becomes official. Wright broke his left forearm during Detroit's postseason win over Tampa Bay and finished the 2023 regular season with 13 receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown across 14 appearances.

In line for contract tender

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-07

The Lions are slated to extend a contract tender to Wright (forearm) ahead of NFL free agency, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The report notes that by offering Wright (as a restricted free agent) a right of first refusal tender of $2.985 million, the Lions will retain the right to match any contract the tight end signs. Wright, who is bouncing back from a broken left forearm that he sustained in the postseason, is coming off a 2023 season in which he caught 13 passes for 91 yards and a TD in 14 regular-season games while working behind outstanding rookie Sam LaPorta.

Placed on injured reserve

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-24

The Lions placed Wright (forearm) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Wright's season is officially over after he suffered a broken forearm during Detroit's divisional-round victory over Tampa Bay. Anthony Firkser and Zach Ertz, who was officially signed to the team's practice squad Wednesday, should be in line for increased roles with Wright now out and Sam LaPorta still dealing with a knee injury.

Breaks forearm in Sunday's win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Head coach Dan Campbell told reporters after Sunday's 31-23 win over the Buccaneers that Wright sustained a broken forearm, Jeff Risdon of USA Today reports.

With such a serious injury, Wright will likely be out for the Lions' NFC Championship game against the 49ers. Wright hauled in his lone target for 29 yards in Sunday's win. Anthony Firkser is set to move into the backup spot behind Sam LaPorta if Wright cannot play next Sunday.

Exits game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Wright has a forearm injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Buccaneers.

The second-string tight end caught one pass for 29 yards before exiting. Wright had 13 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the regular season. Anthony Firkser should take his place behind starter Sam LaPorta.

Expected to face Tampa Bay

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-19

Wright (hip) has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bucs, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Wright practiced in full all week and is good to go for the divisional round. He's likely to fill his typical backup and blocking duties on a fraction of the offensive snaps after Sam LaPorta avoided any setbacks with his knee last Sunday against the Rams.

Logs full practice Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-10

Wright (hip) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

As expected, Wright appears to be on pace to suit up for Detroit in the wild-card round. Notably, Sam LaPorta (knee) did not participate at practice Wednesday, so it's looking increasingly likely that Wright could be the Lions' starting tight end Sunday.
