Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright apparently has never heard of airplanes. Wright was so concerned about making it to voluntary OTAs on time that he spent about $1,000 to take an Uber from Chicago to Buffalo. This has to be the longest Uber ride ever.
Let’s see what people were saying about Wright’s interesting Uber ride.

Not sure why Wright didn’t take a plane flight from Chicago to Buffalo or rent a car and drive back himself, both options which would have probably cost less than the decision he made. Seems like a pretty great length to go to for a voluntary practice. I know one person that wouldn’t do this in order to make a non-mandatory practice.
