WR Wright an Interesting Project for the Panthers

Yahoo Sports! says that one guy you should look at as a possible project this year for the Panthers is WR Wallace Wright, a local product:

WR Wallace Wright realized early on in his NFL career that if he wanted to stick around in this league he’d better find a niche.

And he did just that running down kicks and punts during four very good seasons with the New York Jets.

But now, after joining the Panthers, he’s hoping to expand that role.

Wright, a Fayetteville, N.C., native who played collegiately at North Carolina, signed this offseason with the hometown Panthers after the Jets failed to make him a tender offer as a restricted free agent, and thinks it’s time to show what he can do on offense.

He’s been playing well in OTAs and there’s an outside chance he could see some spot playing time in the Panthers’ offense, especially if the team actually uses some of the four-receiver packages they’ve installed in recent weeks.

“That’s my goal,” Wright said. “I got into the league playing special teams and I excelled at it in New York. They brought me in here to work on special teams but also to help on offense. That’s what I’ve been told. I’m very excited about that possibility and I couldn’t ask for more. Plus, I’m back home.”
