[]Jackson signed a one-year contract with the team last season, reuniting him with head coach Lovie Smith, who was Wright's head coach with the Chicago Bears from 2010-13. The Bears selected Wright in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft.

Over his five-year career, Wright has recorded 304 tackles, 19 pass deflections and nine interceptions.

The Buccaneers also came to terms with defensive end Larry English, tight end Luke Stocker and linebacker Jason Williams on Saturday, according to multiple reports.

Tampa Bay finished 2-14 last season and holds the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft.
