It was definitely tough just being in that moral

first_img“It was definitely tough, just being in that morale every single day, just kind of keep pushing forward and have to keep persevering every day,” Wright said. “Because it’s kind of tough when you’re 0-13 and can’t really do much about it.”The Cardinals, at 5-7-1, are also having a disappointing season, but in them Wright sees an opportunity to further establish himself as an NFL player. He found out the team was interested when he left a yoga class and had about 10 missed calls from his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.“I thought I was getting punked at first,” he admitted.Wright said he received a text from Matt Dudek, the recruiting coordinator for the UA, who is fired up about his return to the state he once called home.Compared to when he last played in Arizona, Wright said he was out of shape in college at about 259 pounds, and now is in the 238-240 range. He feels back to normal now, and at the same time more comfortable playing the NFL kind of game.“It’s more downhill, it’s more gap-scheme, because in the Pac-12 it was so open, zone-read and all that stuff,” he said. “It’s fun.”Going forward, there is no guarantee Wright will stick, though these next few weeks offer the linebacker a chance to show the Cardinals what he is capable of. He knows he must earn his spot, and will do whatever the coaches ask. TEMPE, Ariz. — For Scooby Wright, it might be a case of better late than never.Signed by the Arizona Cardinals off of the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad on Tuesday, the former University of Arizona Wildcat not only thought he was going to stay in the desert, but wanted to as well.“It was kind of funny,” Wright said, recalling a conversation he had with Cardinals coach Bruce Arians in the later stages of the NFL Draft. In May, Arians said he was on the phone “begging” Wright to come to Arizona as an undrafted free agent. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “This is the NFL, your job can be taken any time, you can get cut,” he said. “I experienced that when I was in Cleveland, so I kind of have that mentality where you’ve got to come in every day, handle your business and take care of it.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories last_img read more
