When the San Diego Chargers were done with Shareece Wright, the Ravens claimed him off waivers. At first it was very easy to see why Wright was available. Wright got burned a lot in the first couple of games for the Ravens. Wright was the Ravens’ last resort. He is now pegged as the Ravens number two cornerback. How did we get here?
Wright got seven starts at the cornerback position. At first he was nothing more than a placeholder for the Ravens banged up secondary. If you would have told me that Wright was going to be an important part of the Ravens defense in 2016, after he got roasted in his first games, I’d be trembling in fear.

But then Wright started to play really competently. At times he looked like a well oiled machine, doing his thing. Wright showed that he was coach-able and earned the trust of the Ravens coaching staff. With that trust earned, he relaxed and just played football. It was as if he was trying too hard, he was pressing when he struggled. The Ravens enter the 2016 season with Wright being a crucial key to success.
