Scooby Wright is a former Cleveland Browns player about to debut for the USFL.
The Cleveland Browns have had a lot of guys come through their doors since 1999. Some were great, some were good, others weren’t given a chance, and the rest weren’t good enough to compete. Which, to be fair, was probably a bulk of the guys the Browns have drafted. Yet, one guy, who probably deserved a second shot, is Scooby Wright.
Am I just saying that because of his name? Yeah, that might be it, but keep in mind that while he hasn’t been around the NFL since he got drafted in 2016, Wright has been good enough to be in and out of the league, while also earning starting spots in the AAF, XFL and now the USFL.
I haven’t looked into it, but I will, I have to assume Wright is one of the few guys to be in all three leagues. If he keeps impressing coaches enough to get a spot in these leagues, one has to wonder if he can catch on for sure in the NFL until he retires.
I think he can, but who knows.
Scooby Wright is a reason for fans of the Cleveland Browns to tune in to USFL
For fans of the Cleveland Browns, I hope that you’re not just a fan of current players. I’m not, I like a lot of ex-players. It’s the reason why I liked watching the Birmingham Iron, as they had Trent Richardson. I don’t think Richardson was the third-best rookie in his draft class, but you know, I think he could be a short-yard back in the NFL right now.
Wright is another guy like Richardson that I always liked. Ironically, he’ll suit up for the city of Birmingham, but for the Stallions, as the Iron were an XFL team.
Wright is just one of a few Ex-Browns going to be playing in the USFL this weekend. Former cornerback Brian Allen and former quarterback Kyle Lauletta will also be playing in the league this year, with Allen joining Wright on the Stallions and Lauletta joining the Pittsburgh Maulers.
I’ve long been a fan of an-NFL alternative, because more jobs give more players a chance, and I’m gonna be watching this weekend, looking to see which former Browns (and future Browns?) stand out and show up.
