Shareece Wright takes eight hour Uber ride to get to Bills workout

Posted June 08, 2017

Now there's Bills cornerback Shareece Wright enlisting Uber to get him from Chicago to Buffalo.

According to Google Maps, the trip to Buffalo from Chicago would take about eight and a half hours, clocking in at 526 miles. After all, the driver had to get back to Chicago after the drive to Buffalo.

No clue if Wright's flight was canceled, but according to ESPN's Mike Rodak, Uber is not available in Buffalo until June 29.

Rahal covered the 2.36-mile, 13-turn temporary road course in 1 minute, 13.9681 seconds at 114.966 miles per hour . Hopefully get some good rest tonight and obviously qualifying tomorrow is going to be key for the race.

One of his representatives, Tamerat Berhe, tweeted that Wright left a $300 tip, bringing his total bill to a little less than $1,000. His flight must have been canceled, because he ended up taking an Uber more than eight hours and nearly 550 miles to the Bills' facility.

While OTAs are strictly voluntary in the National Football League, some players are still committed to showing up and getting an early start to the season. And Wright's contract with the Bills doesn't even contain a workout bonus.

OTAs might be voluntary practices, but the 30-year-old Wright is in his first year with the Bills and clearly wants his new coaching staff to know he's committed to the the team.
