Description: The Patriots have acquired Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-round pick from the Buccaneers for Logan Mankins.
Insight: The deal clears up cap space for New England and gives its offense more flexibility. Wright is light for a tight end at 220 pounds but he may be able to serve in Aaron Hernandez' old role as the move tight end. He had 54 catches for 571 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie. It's unnecessary to target Wright in fantasy right now but he's another guy who will see targets. The Patriots receiving hierarchy is unclear after Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman.

Description: Buccaneers third-string tight end Tim Wright is being considered as a slot receiver.
Insight: Apparently the Bucs can't get enough tall receivers for their new quarterback. Wright played as a wideout at Rutgers and could make for another huge target for quarterback Josh McCown.

Description: According to Pat Yasinskas of espn.com, Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright is going to get every chance to be an every-down player with Tom Crabtree, Luke Stocker and Nate Byham all on injured reserve.
Insight: Wright had 106 yards and two scores on nine catches in Weeks 8-9 but he followed that up with two catches total in Weeks 10-11. He had eight catches and 75 yards on nine targets in his most recent game. He should be a top-15 tight end for the rest of the season.
