"I've been challenged since I was a rookie coming in here trying to start," said Wright, a fifth-year pro who started all 16 games a year ago for the Browns while intercepting four passes and totaling 65 tackles. "I stepped up to the plate as a rookie and was able to start early and get some playing time. You know, competition brings the best out of everybody and the cream will rise to the top."
"I said, well, you all better give me a number besides 40 because I didn't really like that number too much," he said of the number he wore during rookie camp. "We worked it out and I got 23."
